“Vostochnaya Stevedoring Company” (VSC) has put into operation a new vehicle entrance gate facility, the company said in a statement. The entrance gate connects the terminal with the Artem – Nakhodka – Vostochny Port highway.
In combination with the adjoining road infrastructure, the new facility is expected to allow the terminal to handle up to 900 trucks a day, which translates into some 340,000 TEU per annum.
The new vehicle entrance gate took more than 350 mil. rubles ($5.6 mil.) of investment, including the reconstruction of related terminal infrastructure. The entire investment under the VSC modernization program exceeded 4.3 bn rubles ($68.4 mil.) during the past five years.
The program is still underway, it envisages modernizing the quayside and acquiring a new handling equipment for the terminal.
