Project Professionals Group member for Russia, Eurosib-Logistics, is developing strong supply chain management links with Japan.
Eurosib-Logistics, has recently completed the shipment of a production line for motor aluminium radiators from Japan and China to the city of Nizhny Novgorod in western Russia.
PPG general manager Kevin Stephens congratulated Eurosib-Logistics on the success of the 3,500 freight tons project, half of which were outsized and heavy lift loads.
“The size of the Russian market offers many opportunities for the transportation of project cargo, and having an experienced member such as Eurosib-Logistics demonstrates the reliability and capabilities of the PPG freight forwarding network to assist clients with their requirements in and out of Russia,” Mr Stephens said.
General Director of Eurosib-Logistics, Andrey Kolesnikov, said the cooperation between Russian and Japanese companies was just starting to evolve.
“For us this means a unique opportunity to acquire experience of coordinated operations and detailed discussion of all relevant issues with our colleagues in Japan. This particular project required a very good level of mutual understanding and synchronised activities between our companies. We have been up to the mark and we now hope to advance our partnership even further,” Mr Kolesnikov said.
The equipment, manufactured by the T.RAD Corporation, was supplied from 30 Japanese factories to the cargo terminals, where its consolidation and export packaging was done.
The cargo was then dispatched via the ports of Yokohama and Nagoya to the German port of Bremenhaffen, where Eurosib-Logistics took delivery of it and sent it further to St. Petersburg.
Simultaneously with ensuring deliveries from Japan, the Russian logistical operator took care of the Chinese part of the shipment, consolidating project cargo at a terminal in China and shipping it via the port of Singan to St. Petersburg. The cargo was then trucked from St. Petersburg to Nizhny Novgorod.
