HPC set to optimise ALG Company's rail terminal in Kazakhstan

ALG Company has selected Hamburg Port Consulting (HPC) to review its current terminal concept and conduct a feasibility study for its optimisation.

The ALG Terminal in Almaty now handles a wide variety of goods, including 20- and 40-foot containers, automobiles, breakbulk, and large-size equipment. It also provides storage services in free-zone temporary storage facilities and customs warehouses.

Indira Tanirbergenova, CEO at ALG Company, stated: “The changes in trade routes across the Middle Corridor connecting Asia with Europe overland, have led to increased demand for efficient rail trade infrastructure in Kazakhstan.

“We believe that by working closely with HPC, we can better position ourselves to meet these demands and contribute to the growth of our region’s trade activities.”

HPC has been tasked with developing a comprehensive planning framework that includes a concept revision.

This review comprises an examination of operational data, a market study, and volume projection. It also entails a thorough examination of the present terminal concept, dwell periods, train schedules, gate operations, loading and unloading procedures, and storage capabilities.

Following this analysis, HPC reportedly created an operational concept that gives several development choices and operational enhancements to fulfil the increasing demands of ALG Company.

Frank Busse, Partner and VP Europe at HPC, noted: “Understanding the local framework conditions and existing planning is essential to develop viable concepts. Our goal is to provide ALG with a range of options that will empower them to make informed decisions regarding the future development of their rail terminal.”

In July, HPC helped Cargo Handling International (CHI), a supplier of air cargo logistics services at Frankfurt Airport, secure funds for the conversion of its truck fleet.

More recently, in September, the U.S. Department of State’s Export Control and Border Security (EXBS) program selected HPC as its partner to provide IT management services for establishing a National Maritime Single Window (NMSW).
