Special attention in the port with increasing number of employees also paid to labor protection issues. These issues in the port are regulated in accordance with the requirements of international companies.
In parallel, the port operates continuously 24 hours with a full capacity. At the present, ferries are being taken and dispatched trucks, deck cargoes, and bulk carriers – containers, piles, pipes, pelleted cargo. In general, after the completion of the repair, the port will allow to receive and send large volume of cargos.
The main advantage of the “Zigh” dry cargo port with 7 bridges, located on the western shore of the Caspian Sea is the proximity of the port to the center. The passage of the railway line near the bridge increases the availability and efficiency of the port, and also simplifies the process of loading cargo from wagons into vessels and landing them from the vessels to the wagons. This does not exclude the increase in the number of open-type warehouses for cargo storage.
