Estonian transit companies participate at TransRussia in Moscow

Estonian logistics and transit companies will be taking part in the TransRussia fair to be held between 22-25 April in Moscow, Russia.

The competition on the freight transport market is ever-increasing and in today’s market conditions the competition is no longer between individual companies, but between whole transit corridors instead. This is the reason why Estonian companies find it so important to participate at the TransRussia fair and present the Estonian logistics and transit sector, despite the somewhat complex political situation.

Port of Tallinn’s chairman of the management board Ain Kaljurand said that all of the port’s main cooperation partners will be present at the fair, and not just from Russia. “It is of crucial importance for us to participate at TransRussia in order to confirm our partnership and offer new cooperation opportunities,” commented Kaljurand.

Estonian state-owned railway freight operator EVR Cargo’s chairman of the board Ahto Altjõe said that Estonian companies are mostly looking forward to reassuring existing contacts and establishing new ones. “We take a keen interest in bringing new freight flows to Estonia, especially by rail.

Particularly we are interested in hauling bulk cargo, containers, machinery and equipment,” noted Altjõe.

The freight transport and logistics market is developing very rapidly and it is important to provide comprehensive services to customers in today’s market conditions - this is the reason why Estonia will be represented at TransRussia by a joint stand.

Estonian Logistics and Transit Association’s chairman Andres Valgerist acknowledged the Estonian government’s support to the logistics sector, as the participation of Estonian companies at TransRussia is partly funded by the Enterprise Estonia foundation. “We have more companies on a larger stand than last year,” said Valgerist.

There will also be a conference held at TransRussia, where the advantages of the Estonian logistics corridor will be presented by Port of Tallinn’s chairman Ain Kaljurand, Sillamäe Port’s commercial director Andrei Birov and Bominflot Estonia’s CEO Anatoli Belov.

The following companies will be present at the Estonian stand: Port of Tallinn, Port of Sillamäe, Paldiski Northern Port, Estonian Railways, EVR Cargo, Spacecom, Contimer, E.R.S., RRK, Alekon Cargo, CF&S, Petromaks Spediitori AS, Intopex Forward, Proline Trans and the Estonian Logistics and Transit Association.

The participation of Estonian companies at the TransRussia fair is co-funded from the European Regional Development Fund and by the Tallinn City Business Department.
