Global Ports expands inspection capacities at two terminals

Global Ports Group has decided to modernise the inspection facilities at its marine terminals First Container Terminal (FCT) and Petrolesport (PLP), located in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

The project is expected to increase the capacity for cargo inspection by 33% at FCT and 77% at PLP, therefore increasing the productivity of inspection operations.

It is also estimated to provide an opportunity for the terminals to meet the growing demand for inspection services and maintain a high quality of service while increasing cargo flow.

The project will increase the capacity for cargo inspection at the terminals by 33% at FCT and 77% at PLP.

Four new inspection canopies will be built at PLP, the first of which was put into operation in November 2021. The three remaining ones are projected to be installed in the next year. As a result, the number of covered cells for container inspections will increase from 118 to 209, according to the Russian container terminal operator.

At FCT, two new canopies will be added to the inspection complex. The first was put into operation in November 2021 and the second one is anticipated to be completed in 2022. Hence, the number of inspection cells at FCT will rise from 100 to 133.

In addition, the new complexes at both terminals will be equipped with refrigerated outlets for inspection of perishable goods, as well as video surveillance systems to monitor operations, according to a statement.
