Ruscon handles growing volumes of Russian project cargo exports7 April 2015
Transcontainer LLC and Ruscon, two divisions of the GCS Group, are among the many local companies involved in the growing out-of-gauge (OOG) export business driven by the Russian currency depreciation over the last year.
One example is a year-long project to transport machinery via the port of Novorossiysk on the Black Sea for a thermal power station being built in Harta, Iraq.
The machinery is sourced from production plants throughout Russia and Transcontainer LLC acts as the agent for Sarjak Container Lines which has the contract to carry the products to the port of Umm Qasr.
Ruscon operates the off-dock terminal which provides stuffing and port handling for the more than100 flat rack and open-top containers that will be transported throughout the project.
