Our Terminal

First Container Terminal (FCT) is located in the harbor of the Port of St. Petersburg, and with an annual throughput capacity of 1.25 million TEUs is the largest container terminal in Russia in both capacity and volume, handling over 1 million TEUs.

Opened in 1998, FCT has an 89 hectare (220 acre) yard and four berths with 780 meters (2,560 feet) of quay, with an alongside depth of 11.5 meters (38 feet). The terminal is served by 3.3 km (2 miles) of railway track, and provides 2,905 reefer plugs.

FCT is linked to the largest European ports by means of an extensive feeder network - Rotterdam, Hamburg, Bremerhaven and Antwerp. World leading shipping lines call at FCT on a regular weekly basis, including Maersk Line, MSC, CMA CGM, OOCL, Unifeeder, Hapag Lloyd, Team Lines, FESCO ESF, Evergreen, COSCO, HMM, Hanjin, Yang Ming.

Availability of an extensive common feeder network linking FCT with major European ports of transshipment allows for presence of other container lines who do not have their own feeder connection with St. Petersburg: APL, China Shipping, CSAV, Hamburg Sud, Samskip, Swan CL, MacAndrews, UASC, SCI, PIL, K-Line, NYK Line, MOL, ZIM, MISC and others.

GPI operates the largest marine terminals on the Baltic coast and in the Far East of Russia.
