Yug-2 was initially designed to only receive automobile carrying vessels i.e. pure car carriers (PCC) with a side ramp. The entire supporting infrastructure was intended to only deal with processing new automobiles with a planned volume from 12,000 automobiles per month with a future increase to 20,000. The 2009 financial crisis resulted in a slump in sales and revenues. In turn, this influenced the management’s decision to turn the automobile-only facility into a multipurpose terminal. New equipment was purchased, while the infrastructure was redesigned and the personnel were retrained. The new terminal could now receive all types of Ro-Ro cargo: heavyweight cargo, containers including reefer containers, bulk cargo ships with up to 50,000 ton deadweight capacity, and rail ferries. An information system was now also required to manage operations and paperwork.
