SASCO set to call at the port of Everett

June 15 - From July, Sakhalin Shipping Company (SASCO) will begin service from the Port of Everett to support the mining industry in the Russian Arctic.

The cargo, which is being transported from Everett to Pevek, Russia, will include equipment, mining supplies and more. SASCO currently specialises in project cargoes in support of the construction and mining industries.

"Partnerships with shipping lines are critical to the ongoing success of our trade operations," Marine Terminal's director Dave Madill said. "Building partnerships and relationships for cargo to move through the port of Everett means jobs and economic stability for the region. We are pleased to work with SASCO to get these products to Russia."

SASCO vessels, most of which are ice-classed, are able to carry a wide range of cargoes, including containers, bulk, timber, heavy-duty vehicles, equipment and other cargoes. SASCO runs a ferry service between mainland Russia and Sakhalin Island, has a number of domestic and international container lines and is the only company providing year-round sea cargo transportation from De-Kastri, Vanino and Sovetskaya Gavan ports.

"The Port of Everett has developed an excellent product geared toward shippers specialising in exports to Russia," said Ralf Bremsner, vice president, SASCO America. "Our newest vessel is gearless and the availability of efficient gantry cranes is an obvious plus when evaluating the best port of call for our vessels. I am pleased we can continue to work together building the SASCO service in the Pacific Northwest /Russian Far East trade with ice-class tonnage."
