Vanino Commercial Sea Port (port of Vanino, the largest stevedoring company in the port of the same name in the Khabarovsk Territory), after the introduction of special software has significantly accelerated the acceptance operations in the processing of containers, which allowed to increase the volumes of transshipment, the stevedore said in a statement.
In the first decade of September, the port received the eighth vessel with containers on board since the beginning of this year, which arrived from the port of Shanghai. “The processing of the vessel lasted 33 hours, about 400 containers were reloaded, most of them will be sent by rail to one of the logistics complexes of the Moscow region,” the statement said.
The stevedore plans to handle 7 more container ships by the end of 2022.
