Global Ports brings new reachstackers to VSC

Global Ports implements two new reachstackers to VSC equipment fleet 

Global Ports Group, a Russian maritime port operator, has built two new heavy-duty reachstackers at its Vostochnaya Stevedoring Company (VSC) terminal in the Far East.

The reachstackers come from ZPMC, a Chinese port equipment manufacturer, and can raise up to 45 tonnes.

They are designed to help in the speed and efficiency of front handling by loading, unloading and storing containers in yard and railway front areas.

The new robots’ capacity to operate train platforms over a single rail track is a noteworthy feature, according to Global Ports.

The new machines will be added to the terminal’s current 13 reachstackers.

Global Ports is consistently increasing the operational capacity of its Far East terminal amid growing foreign trade containerised cargo flows in the Far East.

According to the Association of Sea Commercial Ports, the Far Eastern Sea Basin accounted for more than half (51 per cent) of Russia’s total volume of containerised cargo handling by sea in the first half of 2023.

VSC will become Russia’s second container marine terminal in terms of throughput volume in 2022. VSC will commission two new mobile cranes with a lifting capability of 144 tonnes in April 2023.
