Logistics BusinessAutomotive Deal For BLG at Port Bronka

German automobile logistics provider BLG Logistics and LLC Fenix, owner and operator of Port Bronka, have signed a long lasting cooperation agreement for automotive handling.

Starting with a terminal capacity of 6000 units, BLG will move their terminal activities in Russia from the City Port in St. Petersburg to the newly build Port Bronka at Lomonossov District, which is also a part of the so-called ‘Big Port of St. Petersburg’.

The 120-hectare, state-of-the-art terminal at Port Bronka was opened in December 2015. With a direct connection to the ring road and six berths for seagoing vessels as well as a direct rail connection at the terminal, Port Bronka offers ideal conditions for the import and export of automobiles and other kinds of RoRo cargo. The  BLG/Fenix tie-up is initially based on automobiles of Volkswagen Group Russia, which recently nominated BLG for port handling services in Bronka.

BLG and Fenix will start in a 12 hectare area with 25 truck loading / unloading bays, and aim to grow the scope of service offered at Port Bronka. BLG is to offer an unspecified number of new jobs and will hire new employees mainly from Lomonossov District.
