The terminal, located on the island of Kronstadt near St. Petersburg, has handled its first batch of cars (1,097) of the Chinese Chery and Geely brands, brought onboard KESS Line's Seine Highway from Zeebrugge.
The terminal, a JV of Global Ports and CMA Terminals primarily used for handling containers, can store up to 5,000 vehicles.
"Global Ports is flexible in responding to market needs and makes the most of its terminal infrastructure. Since 2008, together with NYK Auto Logistics (Rus), we have been handling new cars from leading international brands at Petrolesport [situated in the Port of St. Petersburg] and today, alongside our partner, we are expanding the business area of car handling to one more terminal – Moby Dik. The launch of the second site will provide additional operational flexibility to our customers while maintaining a unified high standard of the Global Ports service," Albert Likholet, Global Ports' CEO, commented.
