Business model

Opportunities for cooperation with the port of Sillamäe are numerous, ranging from one or longer transportation contracts to a land-use contract of up to 99 years. Port of Sillamäe will find the best solution for your company.

The most widely used option for cooperation is to transport all types of export, import or transit cargoes through the port, using the services of operating terminals and a railway station there. To do this, you have to contact the terminal or the commercial service of the port, depending on the categories of goods (see chapter of Cargo Handling).

Another option is to set up a factory in the industrial park located in the port for cargo processing (terminal, distribution center, etc.), development of on-site production (plant) or provision of services related to activities of port or/and its partners (see the head of the Industrial Park).

Industrial park

Port Sillamäe is a landlord port with the territory of 750 hectares. More than half of this land is occupied by the port's own facilities (quays, railway station, road network, etc.), 4 terminals, Silpower AS, Silport Kinnisvara AS, environmental company AS Ökosil and a number of other manufacturing and other companies. There are 69 of them all together. They all form the cluster of the port of Sillamäe.

In the port area there are more than 300 hectares of free space for the construction of industrial enterprises, cargo terminals, distribution centers, etc. There is possible to find for them a suitable place closer to the sea or further away from it.

The most welcome are the partners, whose business is to be expected successful specially on the port area, as well as they can take full advantage from that:

  • good access to piers, railway station and terminals;
  • simple access to other countries by sea, railway and roads;
  • work in the Free Zone;
