First load out of the TP’s for Race Bank.
Quote:
24.06.2016

Today Bilfinger Mars Offshore began loading out the first transition pieces (TP’s) onto one of three dedicated barges, for transport from Szczecin, Poland to the port of Great Yarmousth, Great Britain.

The TP’s, each weighing 344 tonnes and with a height of 22 m, will all be transported in the vertical position. With all safety and security procedures checked, the new 1450 tonne, 120m high, gantry crane has been used for the vertical lifting of four TP’s and putting them onto a barge (100x32 m).

The barges have a series of special “rings”, where a group of qualified fitters had attached the TP’s onto the barge deck, with screws and special sea-fastenings, and therefore avoided the need for any deck welding. For added safety and security, an additional mobile basket crane was also assisting the large gantry crane with the loading process.
The load out cycle will repeat every five days, as the barges shuttle the TP’s to Great Britain (on the way, in the port of Nordenham, the further 4 monopiles will be loaded on the barge).

Is Gdansk going to go up in the ranking of the largest Baltic ports? - Summary of the first half of 2016

18.07.2016

The past six months of this year were undoubtedly successful for the Port of Gdansk, as the volume of transshipments handled during that time reached nearly 18 million tonnes. This is a result worthy of a record, as in comparison, in the analogous period of the previous year, which went down in the history of the Polish maritime economy, the port handled over 700,000 tonnes of cargo less than this year.

The coal and general cargo turnover is worthy of special attention. During the first six months of this year, a total of more than 2.5 million tonnes of coal was handled on the quays of the Port of Gdansk, which is an increase of as much as 32% compared to the previous year, and at the same time, the second best result in this respect during the last decade, after 2013.

An almost identical growth dynamics was recorded in the transshipments of general cargo, which increased in Gdansk by 31% compared to the first half of the previous year. Altogether, the transshipments in this group of goods totalled 7.2 million tonnes, which is the best result in the port's history. Both high transshipments of containerised goods and other commodities, including conventional general cargo and Ro-Ro cargo, contributed to the record result. The former increased by 32% when expressed in tonnes and by 27% considering the volume of containers expressed in TEU. Meanwhile, the remaining cargo comprising the general cargo group increased by 17% in the past six months, including Ro-Ro cargo - by 12.5%.

Very good results were recorded in Gdansk also when it comes to the turnover of so-called other bulk cargo, which totalled nearly 2 million tonnes at the port. A similar level of transshipments in this group during the last decade was observed only twice, in 2011 and 2012. At that time, it totalled 2.1 and 2.2 million tonnes, respectively. Such good results are mainly due to increased transshipments of aggregate, as well as a nearly twofold increase in the volumes of feldspar and soda.

However, some decreases were also recorded in the last six months. They affected mainly the transshipments of cereals (down by 29%), due to a smaller import volume of these goods, and liquid fuels (down by 22.5%) - although a considerable level of 5.6 million tonnes of the latter was handled. It is worth noting that last year's result recorded in this group of goods was the highest in the port's history.

In spite of the above, the Port of Gdansk ended the first six months of this year with a result better by 4.3% than in the previous year, which does not entirely reflect the winning streak of this half year, as since January, the dynamics of growth in cargo turnover has reached two-digit results. It was only the slightly lower June transshipments, considering the record turnover of last June, which lowered the final result for the last six months.

Nevertheless, according to initial data, the more than 4% increase is a result which only Klaipeda managed to beat in the Baltic area, recording a 5.7% increase compared to 2015. The other Baltic ports, in particular the Latvian ones and Tallinn in Estonia, suffered two-digit decreases of as much as 11%. Will these changes bring a reshuffle in the ranking of the largest Baltic seaports? If nothing changes - they probably will. As for today, only 33,000 tonnes separate Gdansk from Riga, which ranked fourth last year - which is a positive signal for the remaining part of the year.

Over PLN 0.5 billion of EU funds will flow into the Port of Gdansk

12.07.2016

On 8 July 2016, the CEF Transport Coordinating Committee approved a list of transport projects, including as many as three submitted by the Port of Gdansk Authority SA, for funding from the resources of the Connecting Europe Facility funding instrument.

According to the European Commission's information, 16 Polish undertakings qualified as recommended projects to a total amount of nearly EUR 1.9 billion. The beneficiaries include transport industry entities such as: the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways (administrator of the national road infrastructure), PKP PLK (administrator of the national railway infrastructure), Cargotor, the Polish Air Navigation Services Agency, and the Port of Gdansk Authority SA - the only representative of the maritime industry on the recommended list.

Two infrastructure projects from the approved list of projects are PGA SA investments, amounting to more than PLN 600 million, involving the modernisation of the fairway along with the expansion of the quays and improvement of navigation conditions in the Inner Port and the modernisation of the road and railway network in the Outer Port. Both undertakings received the highest possible funding available within the programme at a level of as much as 85%.

The third of the approved projects is a study involving the preparation of project and environmental documentation for road and railway tasks for a project that will be carried out in cooperation with the Gdansk Municipality.

A total of nearly EUR 119 million will flow into the Port of Gdansk from the CEF fund and will be the highest EU subsidy in the port's history to date.

In accordance with the adopted procedure, the co-financing agreements prepared by the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) will be signed by the Port of Gdansk Authority SA in the second half of 2016.

Preparatory works aimed at completing these huge infrastructure projects began over three years ago. They were supervised by special Task Forces appointed especially for this purpose, comprising several dozen specialists from various fields. At the moment, building permit procedures are under way for most tasks.

Projects with EU-recommended status are key infrastructure undertakings, making it possible to modernise the infrastructure, improving access to the port both from land and water. Their significance cannot be overestimated, as they will influence the improvement of safety of navigation at the Port of Gdansk and improve land traffic. The latter has been particularly heavy recently due to increased, even record transshipments recorded at the quays of the port of Gdansk which came to nearly 36 million tonnes in 2015. This year's dynamics shows that it is really possible for the current year to end with a result of as many as 40 million tonnes.

We are all the more optimistic thanks to the decision made by the CEF Transport Coordinating Committee on co-funding the PGA SA projects, as the port's analyses included in the Development Strategy till the year 2027, based on global data, indicate that in 2030, the transshipment volume at the Port of Gdansk may come to approximately 100 million tonnes.

All the recommended projects are very extensive, multidisciplinary undertakings that will be carried out until 2020, probably based on 9 building permits.

Hydrotechnical projects totalling more than EUR 110.2 million (with a subsidy of EUR 93.7 million) involve the dredging of the fairway and the modernisation of the Obroncow Poczty Polskiej Quay, the Mew Quay, the Oliwskie Quay, the Zbozowe Quay, and the Dworzec Drzewny Quay. However, due to the need to perform the dredging work, the investment will also include other quays, such as the Wislane Quay. Building permit applications were already submitted for all the tasks, the last ones are to be issued in September 2016.

The second of the projects, involving the expansion and modernisation of the road and railway network in the Outer Port, is an undertaking totalling more than EUR 28.7 million (with a subsidy of EUR 24.4 million) that will include the construction and redevelopment of roads of a total length of 7.2 km and railway tracks of a total length of 10 km.

The last of the projects added to the recommendation list is a study project totalling EUR 1 million (with a subsidy of EUR 0.5 million), which is to be carried out in partnership with the Gdansk Municipality. It will involve preparation of the project and environmental documentation for the railway infrastructure for the area at the back of the Dworzec Drzewny Quay and for the road infrastructure on Ulica Ku Ujsciu.

However, the three undertakings are not the only projects to benefit the Port of Gdansk under the decision of the CEF Transport Coordinating Committee on granting funds for the Port of Gdansk Authority projects. The recommended projects also include a project submitted by PKP PLK, aimed at improving railway infrastructure leading to the Port of Gdansk, totalling EUR 141.5 million, out of which nearly EUR 116 million will be subsidised by the EU.

This, in turn, means that more than PLN 1 billion will soon flow into the Port of Gdansk, out of which more than PLN 0.5 billion is for projects carried out directly by the Port of Gdansk Authority SA. Such a decision of the European Committee is a confirmation of the Port of Gdansk's considerable importance on the map of the European Union's Trans-European Transport Network and its prospective significance in the context of the development of the Old Continent's logistics map.

Spotted: DCT Gdansk Erects Mega Boxship Gear

Three STS cranes, which arrived at Poland’s Deepwater Container Terminal Gdansk in May, are now erected and positioned on the crane rails.

A total of five STS cranes are intended for the new deepwater berth at the terminal. The components of the remaining two cranes will be delivered in August, according to DCT Gdansk.

The cranes of T2 terminal have a height of 130 meters (boom up) and 89 meters (boom down). With the outreach of 25 rows of containers, the new cranes will be able to handle the largest boxships in the world.

The infrastructure works are expected to be completed in August and the berth will be fully operational at the end of this year, DCT Gdansk said.

Second Berth at DCT Gdansk Officially Opened

The second berth at the Polish Port of Gdansk’s Deepwater Container Terminal (DCT) has been opened, expanding the country’s sole deep-sea terminal to become the largest container hub in the Baltic Sea.

Opened by terminal operator DCT, maritime ports consultant CH2M and Belgian contractor BESIX, Terminal 2 (T2) can now accommodate ultra-large vessels of the capacity exceeding 18,000 TEUs which will enter the Baltic Sea through the Danish Straits.

The new 650-meter-long and 17-meter-deep quay is expected to increase DCT’s annual handling capacity to up to 3 million TEUs.

T2 features 5 new ship-to-shore (STS) container cranes which arrived at the site in May this year. These cranes are said to be the largest port equipment in Poland, with a height of 82 meters.

In addition, terminal operations are supported by electrified rubber-tired gantry (eRTG) cranes.

“A key requirement of the project was to power the STS and eRTG cranes with electricity rather than diesel fuel to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and noise pollution,” CH2M said.

The construction of the new deepwater berth started in 2015.

Polish Port of Gdansk’s Deepwater Container Terminal (DCT) concluded 2016 with an operational result at the level of 1.3 million TEUs, representing a record in the history of the terminal.

The record number of containers was driven by a number of factors, including the growing need for directs calls of oceanic container vessels in the Baltic, as well as the visible growth of cargo targeted at Eastern and Central Europe markets.

Already in October 2016 the number of containers exceeded the overall result of 1.06 million TEUs seen in 2015, as the second berth at the Gdansk’s DCT was officially opened.

Expanding the country’s sole deep-sea terminal to become the largest container hub in the Baltic Sea, Terminal 2 (T2) can accommodate ultra-large vessels of the capacity exceeding 18,000 TEUs which will enter the Baltic Sea through the Danish Straits, the company said earlier.

The new 650-meter-long and 17-meter-deep quay doubled DCT’s annual handling capacity from 1.5 million to 3 million TEUs.

“With the opening of Terminal 2, we now have the prospect to take it to the next level – use this potential and double in size. DCT Gdansk has proven itself a game-changer for the Baltic, opening the market to direct calls from Asia and providing access for Polish importers and exporters as well as enhanced transshipment access across the Baltic for the Shipping Lines. Our challenge now is to attract new services and to push further into central Europe, whilst retaining and consolidating our position with our existing customers,” Cameron Thorpe, CEO of Gdansk, said.

The Port of Gdansk with a historic record
09.01.2018

The Port of Gdansk Authority SA summed up its 2017 transshipments. According to initial data, the Port of Gdansk achieved an unprecedented record - within the last year, it handled over 4% more goods than planned.

According to forecasts, the previous year at the PGA was to be concluded with a result of 38.9 million tonnes. Initial data shows, however, that the result is higher by 4.3%, which means that within the last 12 months, about 40.6 million tonnes of goods were handled. This is nearly 9% more than in 2016.

"It is a historic record. The Port of Gdansk has never handled such amounts of goods before. We would like to express our gratitude and recognition for our operators, because they are the ones to have worked for this huge number. The result was mainly influenced by higher transshipments within the last quarter of 2017, when the Port handled more than 12 million tonnes of cargo," says Lukasz Greinke, President of the Board of the Port of Gdansk Authority.

2017 abounded in records, both monthly and quarterly. The first half of the year was concluded with the result of 18.6 million tonnes. Towards the end of the year, the Port recorded transshipments on an unprecedented scale. About 4.3 million tonnes were handled in December alone.
(...)
General cargo, predominant in the transshipment structure, achieved the result of 18 million tonnes for the first time in 2017, exceeding the result from 2016 by 24%. Both a higher volume of containerised general cargo and a higher amount of Ro-Ro cargo, including commercial vehicles, has translated into such an effect. Within the last year, 73,207 cars were transported via the Port of Gdansk, which is a result better than in 2016 by 412%.

In 2017, the container volume was also exceptionally high at the Port of Gdansk - achieving a never before recorded result of 16,413,971 tonnes (1,580,505 TEU), exceeding the 2016 result by 22%. Thanks to that, the Port of Gdansk consolidated its position as the second largest container port in the Baltic Sea.

It also achieved a very high result in the transshipment of liquid fuels. In 2017, it amounted to 13,157,582 tonnes of fuels, i.e. 2.7% more than in 2016.

The predominant transshipment group at the Port of Gdansk is general cargo (44.5% of all the transshipments), the second largest one is fuels (32.4%), and the third largest one is coal (12.5%). In the transshipment of coal, the Port also recorded an increase at the level of 0.05%, concluding the year with the result of 5,083,349 tonnes.

Record high cargo handling in 2017 – summary

The Szczecin-Świnoujście Port Complex recorded exceptionally high cargo handling figures in 2017. Last year, the two ports handled nearly 25.5 million t of cargo. This translates into an increase of 5.4% comparing with 2016.

The leader with a double digit result is ore and fuels handling of which amounted to +59.4% and +46.7 respectively. On the one hand, the demand for ore from Polish Slovak and Czech steel mills accounts for excellent results in this cargo group. On the other, fuel handling increased mainly due to the operation of the LNG terminal in Świnoujście and larger import of crude oil from Russia, as well as export of upgraded oil to the west of Europe.

Other bulk did very well last year (+5.4%). The same applies to general cargo (+4.2%), including general cargo transported by ferries (+6.9%). Positive results were also noted by containers handling of which improved by 3% comparing with the previous year.

The drop in grain was a major surprise. The ports handled 28.6% less grain. It was the result of adverse weather and rainy summer of last year. Unfortunately, last year, the downward trend continued in the handling of coal. The results this year was 27% less than in 2016.
In total the two ports handled 25,423.6 thou. t of cargo, namely 1,310.6 thou. t more than in 2016. This translated to an increase by 5.4%.

The Ports Authority foresees that the upward trend should continue through 2018 to reach 26 million t of cargo handled at the year end. We should remember, however, that the market has its whims and some negative factors, beyond the control of the Authority and loading companies, may appear and affect cargo volumes handled.
It is worth adding that the Ports Authority and port companies have been making effort to attract new cargo. Those include investment in the port infrastructure. According to their 2014-2020 investment plan, the Seaports Authority intends to spend nearly PLN1.5 billion. The Authority is going to modernise quays in Szczecin near the Dębicki Canal and the Kaszubski Basin. Technical parameters of quays will be aligned with the new depth of the Świnoujście-Szczecin fairway of 12.5 m. Both ports will extend and modernise their infrastructure. Świnoujście will extend the ferry terminal to make it suitable for intermodal transport, whereas a new redistribution facility will be built in the LNG terminal. The port of Świnoujście is going to build a new deep sea quay.

It is worth adding that in the nearest future, the investment in the two ports will improve the access infrastructure by dredging and modernising the Świnoujście-Szczecin fairway to reach the depth of 12.5 m, and S3 extension and improving navigation conditions on the Oder Waterway.
All the activities re expected to enhance competitiveness of the Szczecin and Świnoujście seaports. This should translate into a growing volume of cargo handled every year.

Today, Szczecin and Świnoujście comprise a universal port complex with general cargo accounting for 51%, dry bulk 36%, whereas liquid bulk 13%. Additionally, the Świnoujście ferry terminal it the leader of ferry services on the South Baltic Sea. At the moment, 12 ferries operate to Sweden. Almost every day, nearly 11 cruises are made between ports of Trelleborg and Ystad. (Monika Woźniak-Lewandowska)

In 2017, the Port of Gdynia trans-shipped a record 21.2 million tonnes of cargo, which is almost 9% more than in 2016.

Dynamically developing trans-shipment from January to December 2017 made the Port of Gdynia one of the leaders among the Polish ports, as far as increase in trans-shipment is concerned. It is worth emphasising that in comparison with 2016, the Port of Gdynia trans-shipped over 40% more coal and coke, and almost 40% more of petroleum and petroleum products in 2017. The Port of Gdynia also trans-shipped more containers, ore, timber and general cargo.

• The increase in general cargo handling (+5.0 mln tonnes), as well as increases in liquid fuels (+1.9 mln tonnes) and ore (+0.8 mln tonnes) were crucial for a good result in total cargo turnover. Large drop was registered in grain turnover (-1.6 mln tonnes).
• General cargo accounted for 50% of total ports’ turnover (+5.7%). Liquid fuels equalled 21%, coal and coke 11% of cargo turnover in Poland.
• Very good year on the container handling market (+17.3%). In 2017 nearly 2.4 mln TEU were handled in Polish ports. Over 21% increase in port Gdansk with an annual result about 1.6 mln TEU. Port Gdynia also gained (+10.7%), annual turnover equalled 0.71 mln TEU. Increase was also recorded in port Szczecin – Świnoujście (+3.0%), throughput exceeded 93 thousand TEU.
• Last year, ports handled 1.88 million passengers (-1.02%) as part of regular ferry services. Most new passengers arrived in Świnoujście (+44 234 people).
• In 2017, the turnover of freight units in ro-ro technology increased by 9% and reached the level of 675 455 units. 416 440 passenger cars were served in the ferry traffic (-1.32%).
• New ferries joined the fleet of ro-ro vessels. Polferries added ferry MV Cracovia to operate on Świnoujście – Ystad route. Stena Line introduced MV Gute to Gdynia-Karlskrona line and also launched a new connection Gdynia – Nynäshamn operated by ro-ro ship MV Elizabeth Russ.
• Very high increase in cruise traffic in Polish seaports. The number of calls equalled 109. In all major Polish ports 122.7 thousand tourists were served in 2017.
• The port of Gdynia remained the largest Polish cruise port (88,6 thousand passengers), but port of Gdansk gained the most. The number of calls doubled and also 150% increase in number of visitors was recorded.

Planned investments

For the port of Gdynia, core investment is dredging of port basins and port canals and also widening of turning basin. Owing to this investment bigger ships will be allowed to enter the port. The implementation of the investment would be very important, especially for container market. Also, the fairway would be dredged to -17 m. The next stage of works started in November 2017, when the hardening of Gościnne berth was removed. The turning basin should be ready to serve ships in second quarter of 2018. Another key investment is the construction of public ferry terminal what will provide comprehensive passenger service, as well as transport of freight units. The construction works would take 2,5-3 years. The construction of new public ferry terminal is necessary investment for the development of Gdynia – Karlskrona motorway of the sea.

The Port of Gdansk is planning to expand and modernize Oliwskie Quay, where grain transshipments take place. The end of works is planned for third quarter of 2020. The Port of Gdansk has recently received funding for the construction of the North Quay in the Outer Port. Due to this investment, Port Gdansk will gain new mooring posts for ships. What is more, new sugar terminal will be built in the Port of Gdansk. In November 2017 the Port of Gdansk Authority and Krajowa Spółka Cukrowa signed a lease contract for the construction of new terminal. New facility will be built near Wiślane Berth. The location will allow loading and unloading of vessels with large capacity.

In the port of Szczecin-Świnoujście works will be conducted to modernise the port infrastructure and to enable the development of intermodal operations in ferry terminal. The beginning of works is planned for mid – 2018. Also, port Szczecin-Świnoujście has planned works related to enlarging the LNG terminal with another berth. The completion of works is planned for 2021. What is more, berths in the area of Dębicki Canal and Kaszubski Basin will be modernized and adapted to new depth of Świnoujście – Szczecin fairway.

DCT Gdansk Hits 9 Million TEU Milestone

DCT Gdansk, the largest container terminal in Poland, has marked the handling of 9 million TEUs since its opening ten years ago.

Following the construction of DCT Gdansk terminal ten years ago and continuous investments in its development, Poland can now effectively compete with the largest ports in Europe.

Today, the terminal has 1.3 km of deep-water quay-line, eleven STS cranes, and handles over 460 vessels per year, including over 100 direct calls from Asia by the largest container vessels in the world.

In 2017, DCT handled 1.6 million TEUs, taking the 16th place among top European terminals.

A tender for the Polnocne Quay at the Port of Gdansk

The expansion of the Polnocne Quay is one of the largest projects carried out by the Port of Gdansk Authority. The PGA has just announced a call for tenders in order to find a contractor for the investment.

This is not the first step of the Gdansk port aimed at expanding the quay. The investment is ready for implementation: project documentation is complete, including the construction design prepared as part of the project co-financed from the TEN-T programme and valid building permit. Now, it is time to find a contractor to turn the designs and documentation into reality.

"The expanded Polnocne Quay will be used primarily for Ro-Ro transshipments. We are witnessing rapid growth in this area, particularly in the transshipments of commercial vehicles. Compared to 2016, the year 2017 ended with a result better by 400%. Our task is to adjust the infrastructure to the needs and development of the market," says Lukasz Greinke, President of the PGA.

The contractor will be responsible for the construction of a parking section of the quay with bottom reinforcement, a universal section of the quay with infrastructure, a Ro-Ro ramp, and a transshipment section of the quay along with infrastructure and a closing section. The contractor's tasks will also include demolition of some existing structures in the area of the silting field, dredging work, construction of the quay infrastructure with external networks, and obtaining the occupancy permit.

The Port of Gdansk Authority has received funds for the investment from the Connecting Europe Facility, within the framework of the CEF Blending priority. As many as 68 projects from Member States applied for support from the programme, out of which 39 were selected. In terms of the amount of subsidies granted, Poland came 5th among the competing countries.

"Even though the first recruitment for CEF Blending was a pilot one with a rather complicated structure, our application for the programme was a success, thanks to which the project received a 20% subsidy from the EU," explains Jowita Zielinkiewicz, Head of the Department of Innovation and Fund Acquisition at the PGA.

Subsidies were granted to just two Polish investments: one, worth EUR 20 million, will go to the Port of Gdansk, and the other - EUR 60.55 million - to PKP PLK. The remaining funds for the construction come from the PGA's own budget. The total cost of the investment is estimated at about PLN 400 million.

Potential contractors have until the end of July to submit their tenders. Construction work will start this year and end in 2020.

Not-so-temporary shift to the Baltic

Political repercussions have been echoing around the Baltic long enough to result in real, structural changes to cargo flows and quays, explains Stevie Knight.

When Russian sanctions on various Baltic states kicked in around 2014/15 the whole dynamics in the region changed. There was less Russia-transit cargo coming into the Baltic states, and less to Finland too. But while this suppressed some ambitions, it rather counter-intuitively pushed one port into the limelight.

Speaking to Port Strategy, Roy Van Eijsden of WSP points out that a drop in transit volumes to Russia has led to more consolidation at earlier stages in the logistics chain. “And Gdansk has benefited,” he says. Container throughput jumped from 1.3m teu last year to over 1.58m teu at the port and its 2016 DCT2 expansion brought capacity at Gdansk to 3m teu.

“Gdansk has become a real hub port, so now when we look at the Asia-Europe trades, instead of just assuming that direct calls will end in northern Europe, we now have to include Gdansk,” he says, adding it has even challenged Hamburg for both transhipment and cargo from the Polish hinterland. “It's not on the same level as Rotterdam - but it is attracting the largest vessels.”

In fact last year it hosted the 21,413 teu, OOCL Hong Kong. This stands out in stark contrast to the small, feeder-sized network around it, which, with a few exceptions like Klaipeda, tend to max out below 4,000 teu.

Interestingly, Gdansk's little sister Gdynia also looks to be getting its own fillip. Its access channel, which currently limits vessel size, is to be deepened and this, consultants speculate, may well trigger a merger between Gdynia's two incumbent operators, Hutchison and ICTSI since “the larger ships would mean economies of scale then make sense... a merger would give them both more focused investment,” explains Mr Van Eijsden. He predicts there will be some “local shifting” given the new competition, but nothing its big sister can't handle.

One-off

However, Gdansk's new stardom is not something that others are likely to be able to repeat. “I don't think that there will be a second major hub port in the region for the foreseeable future,” says Elisabeth Schoppmann of HPC Hamburg Port Consulting. “It's important to understand the hinterland, Poland has 38m people so Gdansk has both transhipment and gateway cargo supporting it... other places are to a certain extent limited by a much smaller domestic market.”

In terms of growth, many northern Baltic ports have at least partially relied on Russia's pull and she points out it's a numbers game: “You have 17m people in Moscow metropolitan area and 6m in the St Petersburg agglomeration, compared, for example, with 1.3 in Estonia.” Therefore the region has been dampened by the ongoing impact from the vicious devaluation of the rouble and continuing Russian sanctions.

She adds that “the figures tell their own story”: along with St Petersburg - which plunged 27% between 2014 and 2015 - Riga, Klaipeda and Tallinn, were also hit. While the first two have made it back and last year gained on the original highs of 2014, Tallinn, like St Petersburg, is currently still nearly 20% down, although she now expects volume to rise along with Estonia's economy.

Interestingly, the most notable exception to the difficulties has been in Finland: there's been a slow but steady upward trend especially at Hamina Kotka which nuzzles close to the border.

However, it does seem as if Russian ports, despite a brave attempt at handling their own transhipment cargo (from regions that haven't curtailed their relationship), still remain mired in challenging customs procedures, and costly fees of all kinds - while other Baltic facilities are proving themselves nimbler, less pricy and more adept, says Ms Schoppmann. It could result in a bumpy ride if the Russian ports respond with an aggressive pricing strategy, she adds.
