Ruscon launched innovative way of handling grain cargo wagons

technologies 11 November 2021
In October 2021, the multimodal transport operator Ruscon, a part of Delo Group, launched a unique technology for transshipment of safflower transported in bulk from covered wagons into containers at the Ruscon-1 terminal in Novorossiysk. The new technology was developed and implemented by the Company’s specialists. As a result, handling time for one wagon was reduced from 4 to 2.5 hours.
This is a very important indicator for a terminal with annual throughput capacity of 45 thousand TEUs and simultanious storage capacity of 2.8 thousand TEUs. The high speed of operations and synchronization with port’s loading and unloading processes allow fast allocation of vacant spots for new cargo and acceleration of containers’ turnover.
“Grain cargo such as safflower traditionally has not been massively containerized, but recently we have seen a different trend - the clients increasingly began to choose this way of exporting it. So, the development and implementation of the technology for accelerating transshipment at the Ruscon-1 terminal was just a matter of time. Our objective is to provide fast, comprehensive, and high-quality service for our clients who entrusted us with transportation. In the nearest future, we plan to reduce handling time to two hours, which will further help us to increase the terminal's throughput capacity and therefore to maximize the satisfaction of our customers' needs", – commented Igor Stolovitsky, Chief Executive Officer of Ruscon, on the launch of the new technology.
