Coalco, a Russian based company, and KTZExpress, a subsidiary of Kazakh national railways (KTZ), intend to contract a new multimodal logistic complex named “Central Dry Port” (DSP) with average annual capacity of 400 thousand TEU (standard container) worth USD169 mln at Moscow airport Domodedovo, reports Russian newspaper Kommersant.

The agreement on contraction of a new site at Domodedovo was signed on Tuesday. The logistic center will be situated on a 60 hectare plot of lad at M-4 Don highway to handle containers passing along the New Silk Road (China-Kazakhistan-Europe) and Trans-Siberian transport corridor.

Container and transport terminals, as well as warehouses of low-temperature and dry containers will be build on the territory of the new logistic center. The first phase of the project with annual capacity of 150 thousand TEU is believed to be launched in late 2019, while by 2025 the center is supposed to work in full capacity.
