LL C Baltic Stevedore Company operates a container terminal at the Baltiysk Port in the Kaliningrad Region, a Russian exclave on the Baltic Sea, and focuses on providing services to the local market, primarily automobile assembly plants and manufacturers of household appliances and electronics.
The company’s location at the entrance to the Kaliningrad Sea Canal, which provides access from the Baltic Sea to the Kaliningrad Sea Port, gives it an important competitive edge. The Kaliningrad Sea Canal is a narrow channel that is 42 kilometers long with a depth of 9 – 10.5 meters and it cannot accommodate two-way ship traffic. The canal is periodically closed
due to weather conditions, which considerably limits shipping and increases the time and cost of
transporting cargo to the Kaliningrad Sea Port. LLC Baltic Stevedore Company’s terminal has the advantage of being located in the ice-free deep portion of the Baltic Sea, enabling year-round
navigation and loading and unloading operations. Direct road access to Kaliningrad dramatically
accelerates the delivery of cargo.
