LLC “Seaport Taman” is Russia’s largest terminal for liquid food cargo handling. It’s a modern port complex with an oil handling deep water sea terminal, terminal port for tankers and with portside manufacture capable of processing almost every type of vegetable oil. The transshipment is dominated by: • Vegetable oil; • Beet molasses; • Sunflower meal and beet pulp. The port possesses three marine terminals allowing it to operate several vessels concurrently. The seaport has modern infrastructure and is capable of accommodating heavy-tonnage vessels with deadweight up to 46 thousand tons. The port storage facilities include 21 reservoirs with a total capacity of 92 500 m3. These facilities come with heating system and mixing devices. The handling facilities’ automatic control system allows to process 15 tanks concurrently. The main seaport Taman’s advantages are: • Year-round navigation — port’s nonfreezing water area allows it to accommodate and to dispatch vessels regardless of the time of the year and weather conditions; • Up-to-date equipment — it’s one of a few specialized terminals in Russia; • Located in between the busiest trade routes and is easily accessible (near the federal route M-25); • Has a communal infrastructure. On December 2nd, 2008 the seaport Taman accommodated its first vegetable oil tanker. Ever since, cargo transshipment ratio has been constantly increasing. In 2003, cargo turn-over was up to 900 000 tons. Since August 2010, customs checkpoint is functioning at the seaport Taman territory (Order of the Federal Agency for State Border Infrastructure Development of the Russian Federation № 398-01 dated August 24th, 2010). Moreover, the seaport Taman cooperates with the freight forwarding company “Taman-Service” to provide its clients with high-quality service and to reduce time costs of formal procedures such as custom processing, ship’s agency services and freight forwarding. The company’s staff is all experienced fleet and shore services workers. Seaport Taman professional activity meets the highest environmental standards. Moreover, the seaport conducts its own environment condition monitoring, including sea, water, air and soil. The largest Russian and international companies are among the seaport Taman’s clients. By this time a lot has been made, together we’re ready to continue developing.

Saturday afternoon drive around the "Seaport District", or"South Boston Waterfront". https://www.wsdevelopment.com/our-properties/boston-seaport-2/ The new home to General Electric (GE) corporate headquarters and global athletic footwear and apparel company Reebok. In a massive renaissance, the area has seen an enormous construction boom in recent years; considered "the hottest, fastest-growing real estate market in the country". A two-bedroom apartment can rent for more than $5,000 per month and the purchase cost would be more than $2 million in 2018. Waterfront Redevelopment This section of South Boston north has been targeted for massive redevelopment. The Fallon Company is currently developing Boston’s Fan Pier, one of the most sought-after waterfront sites in the United States, and a catalyst for the revitalization of South Boston’s waterfront. Fan Pier is a nine-acre, 21 city block site which consisted largely of underutilized parking lots when the Fallon Company purchased it for $115 million in 2005. Today, it is a neighborhood consisting of four commercial towers – One Marina Park Drive, 11 Fan Pier Boulevard, 50 Northern Avenue, and 100 Northern Avenue – and a luxury condominium tower Twenty Two Liberty. A second residential building, Fifty Liberty, is currently under construction. Two more high-rise towers are planned. When complete in 2020, the $4 billion Fan Pier project will encompass three million square feet of commercial and residential real estate, public, civic and cultural space, including two parks and a 6-acre marina. According to the Boston Seaport website, the Seaport/South Boston Waterfront has 78 restaurants, 8 hotels, and continues to grow. The Boston Convention and Exhibition Center straddles D Street. The Seaport Hotel and Seaport World Trade Center is located on Commonwealth Pier. A new home for the Institute of Contemporary Art hangs over Boston Harbor just north of Northern Avenue. The Society of Arts and Crafts, New England’s oldest craft-focused nonprofit is situated closeby on Pier 4. The John Joseph Moakley United States Courthouse is on Fan Pier. The South Boston Waterfront, or The Seaport, in a massive renaissance, has exploded in recent years; considered "the hottest, fastest-growing real estate market in the country", the Waterfront has seen an enormous construction boom. The "Innovation District," as ex-mayor Tom Menino termed it, is now home to tens of new office towers, residential buildings, and "innovation labs" either proposed or under construction. As of September 2010, the Seaport Square project was also under planning. It was expected to cost $3 billion and replace parking lots between the federal courthouse and convention center with a 6,300,000-square-foot (590,000 m2) mixed-use development. Construction was expected to begin in 2011. Due to the increase in nightlife in the neighborhood, on-street parking for residents has become increasingly scarce. In response, city officials are launching a 90-day pilot program that will expand resident only parking to seven days a week, from four. On January 13, 2016, it was announced that GE will be moving its corporate headquarters from Fairfield, Connecticut to the South Boston Waterfront. GE ranks eighth on the Fortune 500 and will become the largest publicly traded company based in Massachusetts. According to the Boston Globe, a two-bedroom apartment in the Seaport area can rent for more than $5,000 per month and the purchase cost would be more than $2 million in 2018. In November 2016, the global athletic footwear and apparel company Reebok announced they would be moving their headquarters from the Boston suburb of Canton to the innovation and design building in the seaport district of South Boston. The reasons for the move, according to the company, is to be located in an urban environment that is more desirable to millennial workers and to “clarify the roles” of United States offices. The move was completed in the fall of 2018. South Boston is a densely populated neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. South Boston, most popularly known as Southie, was once a predominantly working class Irish Catholic community, but has become increasingly desirable among young professionals. South Boston has undergone gentrification, and consequently, its real estate market has seen property values join the highest in the city. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Boston https://www.bostonseaport.xyz/

Why a fishing town in Pakistan is changing the world’s geo-political landscape! A small fishing town in the South-West of Pakistan, Gwadar is the gateway city of China's $62 Billion China Pakistan Economic Corridor. A deep sea port strategically located in the Indian Ocean at the opening of the Strait of Hormuz. Pakistan leased Gwadar Port to China in 2015 as part of a $62 Billion deal. China also acquired 22,000 acres of land adjoining the port in Gwadar which has been declared a Special Economic Zone. A 1224 Kilometre highway is being built from China ending in Gwadar emulating the ancient Silk Road Gwadar will link the Silk Road on land with the Maritime Silk Road The new Silk Road reduces shipping times for Chinese goods to the Middle-East, Africa and Europe by up to 80%. Gwadar is being developed under the model of China's Shenzhen through the establishment of Special Economic Zones. Shenzhen was amongst the fastest growing cities in the world growing from a population of 30,000 in 1979 to 10 Million in 2017 with a GDP of $294 Billion! Zhang Baozhong, the Chairman of China Overseas Port Holding Company said “China plan to spend $4.5 billion on developing Gwadar.” In November 2016 the first cargo travelled the Silk Road from Kashgar in China to Gwadar and shipped out from Gwadar to the Middle-East and Africa. Currently there are some 2000 Chinese personnel in Gwadar this number is projected to grow up to 500,000 by 2023. There is a geo-political shift happening in the world and Gwadar is at the heart of this. We're also currently running a crowdfunding campaign to help our operation produce more and better videos.

A leading Chinese investment company here announced to invest $500 million in Gwadar in first phase of project aimed at building homes for around 500,000 incoming Chinese professionals expected in Gwadar by 2023. China Pak Investment Corporation (CPIC) announced at a press conference here the partnership with Top International Engineering Corporation (TIEC) a Chinese state owned company with over $100 Billion worth of projects delivered since 1950 to develop China Pak Hills the first Chinese built Master-Community in Gwadar. The ceremony was attended by China Pak Investment Corporation officials Jian Zheng, Chief Operations Officer, Dawei Li, Spokesperson; Stuart Reid, Chief Operations Officer of ONE Investments, architect Vladimir Tchaly; legal Consultant Moshiur Mian and Syed Zeeshaan Shah, the Chief Executive Office of ONE Investments and former Apprentice Star. Jian Zheng of China Pak Investment Corporation spoke about the relationship with TIEC and the opportunity that the One Belt One Road investment by the Chinese government offers Pakistan and particularly the Port City of Gwadar. He said that China Pak Hills is an unprecedented development project. He said: “China's policy to unite emerging economies grappling similar aspirations towards development will someday soon, transform nations like Pakistan into developed economy status. This vision has driven the partnership of The China Pak Investment Corporation and Top International Engineering Corporation to develop China Pak Hills formerly known as International Port City with the Gwadar Development Authority.” Vladimir Tchaly spoke about the vision and creativity that the design team offer and how these will be translated into a contemporary development for a community of over 10,000 residents. Stuart Reid, COO of One Investments Ltd, said of the landmark project: “China Pak Hills is a unique and exciting opportunity. The level of investment and commitment made by the Chinese government in the CPEC guarantees that Gwadar is going to be one of the most important trading and access points in the World. Its geographic position, combined with the infrastructure being created through the CPEC means that it can only grow exponentially. The announcement hails an exciting new phase in the development of the port of Gwadar, the ‘Gateway City’ to the $62 billion China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), the largest unilateral foreign direct investment from one nation into another. The CPEC is set to catapult Pakistan’s stature as a key global trade and economic hub and includes a bouquet of projects currently under construction that will not only improve Pakistan’s infrastructure, but will deepen the economic and political ties between China and Pakistan. The China Pak Investment Corporation acquired GDA approved International Port City, which is under application in GDA to be renamed to China Pak Hills.

Hambantota Port will become a reality on 15th August 2010 The Water Influx ceremony of the world's first international harbour completely built inland will be inaugurated by President Mahinda Rajapaksa at 9.00 a.m. on Sunday, (15th August). Hambantota had been a well known sea port in the ancient history of Sri Lanka as the name "Hambana" itself being the name of sailing vessels that had been used in the ancient times that frequented many Asian ports. Even the activities of Hambantota as a sea port are mentioned in the R.L.Bohier's book on Sri Lanka written in the Second Century. Hambantota is situated at closest point to the main shipping route that connects East and West. 200 to 300 ships ply this area daily, and now they call at Singapore and Dubai Ports. The idea of building a modern port in Hambantota was first mooted by the late Parliamentarian Mr. D.A.Rajapaksa, the father of President Rajapaksa. But it did not materialize. Later the idea came up time to time, raised in Parliament by many Mps. It remained a suggestion but never saw the light of the day due to many reasons. The Chairman of the Sri Lanka Ports Authority Dr. Priyath Bandu Wickrema says that a foreign company which was hired to carry out a feasibility study reported saying the location, Hambantota was not suitable to build a harbor and this brought the whole project to halt. However, Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa as the Prime Minister then, was not impressed by the pessimistic attitude of the report and was determined to overcome the negative reaction and proceed with it. Upon becoming President in November 2005, China was chosen to fund the project. Dr. Bandu says that Sri Lanka made an open request for funding and China was the first to respond. The port was built on a 2000 hectares of land and 450 families lived in the area were relocated with payment of adequate compensation. The Hambantota Port is being constructed by the Chinese companies China Harbour Engineering Company and Sinohydro Corporation. The total cost of the first phase of the project is estimated at $360 million. 85% of the funding is provided by the Chinese Government and the remaining 15% by the Sri Lanka Ports Authority. The mouth of the natural harbour at Hambantota has a 22m depth. When completed, the port will have a 1.5 km long breakwater, with a minimum basin depth of 17m. The turning circle will be 600m. A dam will also be built to prevent flooding in nearby areas, and a seawall made of interlocking concrete blocks will protect the port from high seas. A $550 million tax-free port zone is being set up outside the port, with local and international companies expressing interest in setting up shipbuilding, ship-repair and warehousing facilities in the zone. The Port is expected to provide 13,000 direct and indirect employments to over 100,000 people The first phase of the Port will consist of two 600m general purpose berths, a 310m bunkering berth and a 120m small craft berth. It will also contain a bunkering facility and tank farm which will include 8 tanks for marine fuel, 3 tanks containing aviation fuel and 3 for Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG). A 15 floor administrative complex is also under construction as part of the project. The port will also have facilities to handle port related large scale industries such as handling and bagging of cement and fertilizer in addition to storage of fuel and LP Gas thereby providing opportunity for a third LP Gas operator to open up business that would create competitiveness in the gas market. The oil tank farm will have 14 tanks of which 8 tanks will be for storage of fuel for bunkering facilities for vessels, 3 tanks for storage of aero fuel and the other 3 tanks for storage of LP Gas. The total project will be completed in 4 stages and the first stage operations will commence in November this year, one year ahead of schedule. During the first stage the port will handle 3 ships a day, and after completion of the total project, the Port will be able to handle 33 ships at a time.

The Bristol Port Company was formed in 1991 when entrepreneurs Terence Mordaunt and David Ord purchased the port of Bristol from Bristol City Council. Since privatisation the company has invested over £450 million to create a modern, thriving business offering a full range of shipping, distribution and logistics services. The port had dominated the city centre of Bristol for centuries but as vessels increased in size and draft, a new dock basin was constructed at the mouth of the River Avon in the 1870s. For the same reasons a Century later Royal Portbury Dock was constructed, opening in 1977 to cater to ever increasing vessel sizes. The advantages of Bristol Port today are: • It is Britain’s most centrally located deep sea port and can handle vessels up to 130,000 dwt. • Bristol is recognised as the most economical port distribution location in the UK being able to access a population of 45 million people within a 300km radius. • Bristol has the best motorway access. Both Avonmouth and Portbury have their own dedicated motorway junctions on the M5 – just seven miles from the M4 interchange and the second Severn crossing. • Both Royal Portbury and Avonmouth Docks are rail connected. • Bristol’s entire 2,600 acre dock estate is zoned for industrial use and can offer spacious sites adjacent to the Port. Royal Portbury Dock is a modern facility, having been completed in 1978. These vital resources, combined with creative, efficient management, provide a climate for innovation, but that is not enough to ensure Bristol’s continuing competitiveness. That is why we will continue to invest in the technology, the security, the skills and the people who make it happen.
