Russia-Based CREDO-TRANS: Freight Ports and Terminals. Freight Services and Logistics Corridors

Sea Ports and Terminals

Efficient Ports and Terminals are an essential component in the transnational supply chain. International commerce today is highly dependent upon sea freight transportation due to low cost and high capacity for bulkier cargo. Sea freight is viewed as the most reliable and affordable solution when sending large shipments internationally.  Existing sea freight corridors and logistics hubs are currently at the center of attention for many production businesses seeking new facilities and for a good reason. The growing significance of logistics in global supply-chain management is the driving force behind this trend.

CREDO TRANS has been an active sea freight transport operator since 2008. With a proven track record of high profile shipments across the globe, we provide you with the most efficient freight port logistics for businesses large and small. We take pride in building flexible and profitable partnerships on sea freight shipping with leading agents, such as Evergreen, OOCL, APL, MSC, COSCO,  MAERSK, China Shipping, CMA, and CGM.  

Ports take many forms, from giant hubs with gantry cranes operating the heaviest containerships, to floating single point buoys permanently moored offshore. The present-day busiest freight ports are in China: ports of Shanghai,  Singapore, and Hong Kong. Rotterdam is Europe’s largest seaport by far. Historically situated on a coast, some ports, such as Manchester and Hamburg, are inland linked to the seashore via rivers.

The Port of Novorossiysk in Russia became the leading port of the nation by handling nearly 142 million metric tons of cargo in 2020. The Port of Ust-Luga on the Baltic Sea closely follows. CREDO TRANS conducts maritime transportation of goods on 27 routes using the facilities of St. Petersburg,  Novorossiysk, and Ust-Luga seaports. We provide a safe and cost-effective international ocean freight shipping to foreign countries:

  • Southeastern Asia (China, India, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan),
  • North America (USA, Canada, Mexico),
  • South America,
  • Europe.

What is a port in transportation?

Port, a maritime facility, is a transportation term to define a convergence point of seaside and inland transportation systems and between freight circulation domains as they maintain export and import. 

How does a shipping port work?

The main functions of a port are to provide facilities necessary for seagoing ships to enter, operate in (load/unload cargo, embark/disembark passengers), and leave the port; deliver services to freight (transshipment and storage) and ships (repairs, refueling, piers).

What is a terminal in logistics?

The terminal is a location on a seaport that serves as a “checkpoint”  for loading and unloading of cargo on board a ship/vehicle for transport. It is a transfer point for passengers as well. Typically, there are several terminals across a seaport.

A container terminal is a logistics term to define an intermediate destination facility, enabling containerized cargo to move between various transport vehicles (sea to land and vice versa), for further onward transportation en route to its final destination.

A logistic corridor is provided as a service by CREDO TRANS. In the area of logistics services, the concept of ‘logistics corridor’ defines a major direction of transportation, promoted by the specific logistics operator to carry the cost advantage. 

What is cargo in logistics?

Cargo, or freight, refers to goods being transported from one location to another – by air, sea, or overland. Originally, the term ‘cargo’ referred to goods being loaded onboard a vessel. Nowadays, cargo is used to define all types of goods.

What is freight logistics?

Freight management logistics include the human resources, technology,  knowledge, and experience used to promote effective and expeditious coordination between distributors, carriers, vendors, shippers and ensure freight is delivered on time and budget.
