Volga-Dnepr builds up presence in Russian logistics market
OCT 2, 2015: Volga-Dnepr Group’s growing 3PL logistics division in Russia and the CIS has organised the delivery of over 190 tonnes of shipments for the project engineering company, Telekom-Zapad.
The cooperation started with Volga-Dnepr delivering a 230kg shipment of cable samples to Yakutsk in the Russian Far East, located 450km south of the Arctic Circle, using the bellyhold cargo capacity of a passenger aircraft. Transportation of further shipments was completed by road and rail. Volga-Dnepr has also provided cargo warehousing, packing and insurance services.
In support of this customer, Volga-Dnepr’s logistics team has so far arranged deliveries over a total combined distance of 71,000km.
Georgiy Shklyanik, head of logistics at Volga-Dnepr Airlines, said, “The customer was satisfied with our service performance for the first shipment and returned to us with a requirement for a series of cable shipments for the Yakutsk Fuel and Energy Company. Some 190 tons of cable were carried by road and rail from Moscow to Kysyl-Syr and Bolshaya Markha in the Yakutsk region. Most recently we have arranged the trucking of a 5-ton outsize low-voltage switchboard from Minsk, Belarus, to Yakutsk. We are now seeing a growing level of enquiries for our logistics services.”
