Port Bronka offers cargo owners support during pandemic

Port Bronka, in St Petersburg, continues to strengthen its support for Russian participants in foreign economic activity in connection with the coronavirus pandemic by offering shippers cargo storage without an additional financial burden until the end of 2020.

This will allow the storing of export goods up to 60 free days, and import goods up to 30 free days at the port yard. This measure is applicable to all cargoes that will arrive at the port before the end of the year.

"The support from the Russian Government will help the affected industries recover, but the impact of the economic shock will have long-term consequences," said Nikita Murov, CEO of Bronka Group LLC.

These are not the first measures taken by the Port Bronka to support participants in foreign economic activity who are in a difficult situation due to the development of Covid-19. In mid-April 2020, the port provided additional space for foreign trade participants to accommodate goods, allowing cargo to stay at the port twice as long as usual without additional financial burden on cargo owners.

Port Bronka is the only deep-water port in St.Petersburg and handles container, project, break bulk and ro-ro cargo. The current capacity of the port is 500,000TEU and 130,000 units of ro-ro cargo per year. The further development plan includes an increase in the container cargo capacity to 1.9 million TEU per year and ro-ro cargo – up to 200,000 units per year.
