CG Conex offers you access into Russia via Ust-Luga Commercial Sea Port from the Far East/South East Asia, India & Australasia. The multi-purpose commercial sea port in the Luga Bay of the Gulf of Finland provides unprecedented access to mainland Russia for up to 180 million tons of cargo every year.
The 1,036,309 sq metre area port becomes the nearest Russian port to Europe, its position crossing two major shipping corridors – “North Sea” and “East-West” – saving 24-48 hours from major Northern European ports compared to the port of St. Petersburg. Excellent rail and highway access bypasses infamously congested St. Petersburg transport networks, reducing the overland transit time to Moscow and into mainland Russia and creating a minimal difference compared to time gained over sea for the first time.
Ferry connections with ten major networks ensure services from Ust-Luga cover practically every major Northern European port.
Ust-Luga Commercial Sea Port is geared for commerce, with separate terminals for coal, oil (the port is the end point of the Baltic pipeline system), grain, and many more, the on-site logistics centre makes for simple unhindered logistics, and no passenger traffic to prioritise ensures no slowing of commercial progress.
