1GSA appoints TEK Poseidon as its member for Russia
August 18, 2017: 1GSA, the new network for independent cargo GSSAs, has appointed Moscow-based TEK Poseidon as its member for Russia. 1GSA now has members in 12 countries, and pending applications for several more.
TEK Poseidon was founded in 2002 by partners with extensive previous experience in freight and logistics; it has since developed into a substantial group of businesses spanning diverse activities such as forwarding, road transport, express, warehousing, liner agency, and ocean consolidation. It has bases in Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Riga, Klaipeda, Helsinki, Minsk and Hamburg; a further office is planned in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.
The TEK Poseidon air cargo GSSA operation is the group’s newest activity. In addition to providing sales, marketing and revenue collection for airlines, it benefits from the availability of its group’s facilities for bonded warehousing and trucking, import handling, and door-to-door collections and deliveries, providing a comprehensive service package with important additional controls over cargo. The GSSA division is managed by Sergey Bryukhovetskiy.
Alexander Tysyachnikov, chairman, TEK Poseidon, says, “Imports and exports between Russia and overseas markets are well-balanced, with particularly good demand on routes to and from Central Asia, the Middle East, South Asia, and Africa. However, during the economic crisis in Russia, a number of carriers left the market, and this now provides some challenges in achieving direct connections with overseas markets; sometimes, two transhipments are required.
“TEK Poseidon’s air cargo sales and marketing resources, in conjunction with its integrated trucking operation and well-established access to first-sector flown capacity, mean that we can provide offline and online carriers with a one-stop solution for establishing an effective presence in the large, and potentially lucrative, Russian market.”
David Lee, president, 1GSA, adds, “Russia is an important market, with exciting opportunities for international carriers. But we recognise that providing effective representation and reliable management of transhipments are equally vital to its successful exploitation.”
“We are therefore very fortunate in recruiting a member who can resolve these issues through its strong resources. TEK Poseidon’s capabilities in Russia add considerably to 1GSA’s growing offering to carriers.”
