Lübeck in cars for Russia deal

Lübecker Hafen Gesellschaft and Finnlines have jointly won a 3-year contract to handle 60,000 factory-new automobiles per year destined for Russia, to be shipped from LHG’s Skandinavienkai in Lübeck Travemünde.

 

The cars, covering various models from compacts to sports cars, will arrive mainly by rail and, at Fenix Investments’ Port of Bronka, they will be discharged at the ro-ro terminal.

 

Shipping new cars represents a new business stream for LHG, and LHG’s MD Professor Sebastian Jürgens believes the Russian market will pick up again in the future. It is also important for Bronka, which is at the outer limit of the Big port of St Petersburg and has direct access to the city’s ring road as well as on-dock rail access.
