The delegation of advisory and public councils of the Federal Customs Service assessed the capacity of the ports of the Azov Basin and the Black Sea to cope with the increase in the flow of goods attributed to the cessation of ship calls at the port Petersburg and limited railway infrastructure in Far Eastern ports, according to the Telegram channel of the Federal Customs Service (FCS).
The inspection covered the following ports: Kavkaz, Temryuk, Tuapse as well as a container terminal and a factory in the port of Novorossiysk. “The activities of Black Sea stevedores and cargo handling technologies have been highly valued in the cargo transportation segment between Russia and Turkey,” the statement read.
