During nine months of 2016 the volume of shipments undertaken by the vessels of North-Western Shipping Company (NWSC) (the company is a member of UCL Holding) equaled to 4,26 million tons, which is 16,5% higher than the volume during the corresponding period last year.

1,3 million tons (which is more than 30%) of the shipping overall was conducted by the new vessels of NWSC – 10 vessels of DCV36 project (lead ship – “Amethyst”) and 7 vessels of RSD49 “Neva-Leader” project.

The structure of shipping did not undergo any major changes during nine months of 2016. The following shipments were conducted by the vessels of NWSC: 1,3 million tons of grain cargo (+30%), 647 thousand tons of ferrous materials (-21%), 560 thousand tons of chemical and mineral fertilizers (-9%), 496 thousand tons of construction cargo (a 9 times increase), 402 thousand tons of coal (a twofold increase), 179 thousand tons of non-ferrous metals (+19%), 197 thousand tons of timber cargo (-25%), 134 thousand tons of scrap metal cargo (+14,5%), 345 thousand tons of other types of cargo.

The majority of shipping – approximately 3 million tons which equals to 70% - was formed by export cargo of the shipping company, its quantity growing by 21%. The majority of the exported range of items was formed by grain cargo – 1,2 million tons (+31%), ferrous materials – 595 thousand tons (-14%), coal – 375 thousand tons (a twofold increase), chemical and mineral fertilizers – 406 thousand tons (+64%), non-ferrous metals – 118 thousand tons (+87%).

The transportation between foreign ports equaling to 672 thousand tons which forms 16% of the overall volume, shrank by 31% for the most part at the expense of the major types of cargo of that sector – timber cargo, ferrous and non-ferrous metals and fertilizers. However, the transportation of grain cargo showed the same increase as the one in the export sector – an almost twofold increase – up to 112 thousand tons.

The volume of import cargo shipping of the shipping company fell by 43% to 115 thousand tons, which was caused by the general reduction of import ration in the turnover of commodities of the Russian Federation. The import ratio in the general volume of traffic equaled to 2,7% during nine months of 2016.

The domestic intra-Russia shipping that consisted for the most part of construction cargo shipping equaled to 481 thousand tons, which is a 34 times increase of the index. The intra-Russian domestic shipping ratio in the general volume of traffic equaled to 11,3%.
