Russian Railways Logistics organized multimodal transportation of feldspar for ceramic tile production business of UNITILE Holding from port of Gulluk in Turkey to the Russian cities of Voronezh and Shakhty. The process of shipment consisted of freight forwarding, transshipment at the port of Rostov-on-Don and the final delivery of feldspar to consignees - JSC PKF “Voronezh ceramic factory” in Voronezh and Trading House Stroyfarfor LTD in Shakhty (Rostov region).

Delivery of goods to the destined port was hindered by severe weather conditions in December 2012, namely frost, storm and insufficient water level in the river of Don. In spite of these force-majeure circumstances Russian Railways Logistics promptly took measures to fulfill the contractual obligations to the client.

The branch of Russian Railways Logistics in the Russian city of Rostov-on-Don in cooperation with the management of the port of Rostov city, took actions to organize icebreaking services for vessels and to change the port of destination.
