JSC RZD Logistics, the largest multimodal logistics operator in the CIS and Baltic countries, will become the partner of VTG Rail Logistics Gmbh – one of the leading logistics companies in Europe – on the track gauge of 1520 mm. Cooperation on the delivery of equipment parts to Amur gas processing plant being built near the city of Svobodny will become the first common project of the parties.
According to the achieved agreement, RZD Logistics in partnership with VTG Rail Logistics will provide the service of cargo receiver and is expected to organize terminal works, as well as to form shipment and provide road freight transport on the “final mile”. Moreover, RZD Logistics will escort the cargo in Far East ports of entry, including forwarding in ports, transshipment of cargo and its securing on rolling stock.
“There is a number of large-scale projects in Russia, similar to the building of Amur gas processing plant, where VTG Rail Logistics plays the role of the main logistics provider. The successful realization of these projects requires from the contractor high level of expertise and successful experience on the track gauge of 1520 mm. In the course of our company’s six year existence we have gathered significant experience and competence and are willing to provide logistics services of any complexity, including the supply chain management. I’m convinced that partnership with VTG Rail Logistics will be successful not only for the both companies, but for the end customer as well”, – noted first Deputy CEO of RZD Logistics Eduard Alyrzaev.
