Taganrog Port

 

The port of Taganrog is also located on the cost of Sea of Azov (80 kilometers by road from Rostov-on-Done). Local authorities are negotiating a loan with a banking consortium to expand and improve the port's capacity and infrastructure. The city has applied for an ECU 2.2 million grant from the EU's TACIS Program for a feasibility study on how to best integrate river, rail, and road connections to southern and northern Russia.

Taganrog has currently the capacity to handle one million tones of cargo annually, but there are plans to build a new dock complex with an annual cargo turnover of three million tones. Local authorities will have to figure out how to attract foreign investment and credit for the project. Taganrog's port throughput was up 50% at 946,500 tones in Jan.-Oct. 1997, as compared with the same period in 1996. The main types of export cargo handled by the port include lumber, iron, steel, and coal. Import goods included citrus fruit, flour, alcohol and tobacco products, and building materials. Container transshipments are also becoming more widespread.
