Last week Port of Tallinn and Estonian Railways signed a cooperation agreement in Beijing with Chinese state-owned Sinotrans that will start channeling its transit flow through Port of Tallinn, using Estonian Railways’ infrastructure.

Sinotrans that was founded in 2009 in a merger of the China National Foreign Trade Transportation Corporation and China Changjiang National Shipping Group offers cargo transport, freight forwarding, ship brokerage, warehousing and cargo terminal services.

Sinotrans has nearly 100 subsidiaries in South Korea, Japan, Canada, the US and Germany. It also owns a sizeable fleet of bulk carriers, tankers, container-liners and rolling stock vessels.

Ain Kaljurand, CEO of Port of Tallinn, said that Sinotrans handles considerable cargo volumes and has an extensive customer network. The agreement is expected to prepare the ground for Tallinn to become a regional hub for Sinotrans’s operations.

Transport Giants To Launch 130-Million-Euro Container Terminal

In Uncategorized on April 12, 2011 by admin Tagged: , , , , , ,

TALLINN(err.ee) – The Port of Tallinn, Estonian Railways and one of Russia’s largest transport companies Rail Garant signed an agreement on April 11 to start up a 130-million-euro container terminal at Muuga Harbor.

The deal comes a month after the Port of Tallinn awarded Rail Garant the much-sought-after contract to operate its planned terminal.

Infrastructure for the facility was installed last summer thanks to over 64 million euros in EU support. Rail Garant said it is planning to invest the same amount again to further develop the terminal, which should come on line in early 2013, uudised.err.ee reported.

Rail Garant CEO Nikolai Falin said the advantages of the Port of Tallinn were its convenient location, advanced infrastructure, year-round accessibility, simplified customs clearance procedures and the absence of customs fees.

“At the same time, the Russian ports of the northwest are overloaded and don’t have the throughput capacity to handle cargo volumes even at current levels,” said Falin.

Ain Kaljurand, chairman of the Port of Tallinn, said the project would both strengthen the port’s competitiveness and make Estonia’s own export easier and cheaper.

“Rail Garant’s concept is truly unique: mostly, our transit has been Russian-bound, with goods still moving from west to east, while their business plan involves the reverse movement – from east to west. This will give Estonia additional transport capacities and will create advantages for exporters,” he said.

Kaljurand also said that transporting the containers by rail rather than road would have a lower environmental impact.

Port of Tallinn boost passenger numbers by 10% in January-April

In Uncategorized on May 16, 2010 by admin Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , ,

While during the first four months of 2009, the Port of Tallinn was used by 1.919 million passengers, this year this number was 2.065 million passengers – by 8% more.

In comparing the months of April of 2009 and 2010, the number of passengers grew by 12% – from 547,100 persons to 612,800. This growth is likely to be partly due to the problems in air traffic caused by volcanic ashes.

From January to April, the number of passengers grew in the category of cruise tourists – by 36%, from 4,600 to 6,200. The number of passengers on cargo vessels fell by 84% from 2,600 to 400.

The visitations from ships fell by 5% – during the first four months last year, 2,281 vessels visited the Port of Tallinn while this year the number was 2,171. The visits from cargo ships fell by 21% – from 855 to 673 whereas the visits from passenger ships grew by 5% from 1,426 to 1,498.
