NUTEP Container Terminal and KSK Grain Terminal (both part of DeloPorts, the stevedoring asset of Delo Group) set an absolute record of cargo throughput in 2022.
NUTEP handled 582,498 TEU, a 6.8% increase compared to 2021. The terminal also set a monthly record in December 2022 with 64,445 TEU. The previous record of 58,577 TEU throughput was set in March 2021. KSK handled 5.972 million tons of grain export in 2022, a 24.2% increase year on year.
Igor Yakovenko, CEO of DeloPorts commented on the operating results: "In the container segment we were able to stabilize the situation despite the overall decline in transshipment volumes in the Azov-Black Sea basin, caused by the departure of global shipping lines. DeloPorts maintained high quality of service and built new logistics chains in cooperation with other companies of the Delo Group. We remain a reliable partner for Russian grain producers. Previously implemented investment projects, expansion of the KSK throughput capacity and the application of modern equipment allowed us to be prepared to meet the exceeded demand of exporters and for further increase of handling volumes in 2023".
