The first sailing of FESCO Russian Pacific Line’s new direct all water service to Vladivostok departed the Port of Tacoma now.

FESCO Russian Pacific Line, a FESCO Transport Group Company, the number one logistics provider to Russia, is offering roll on/roll off vessels, as part of its direct fortnightly service to Vladivostok and all points in the Russian Far East.

A variety of breakbulk, roll on/roll off, including trucks, trailers and automobiles, as well as project cargoes were loaded onboard the STX Bluebird, which will be arriving in Vladivostok on December 2, 2011.

“We saw a need to satisfy our customers’ requirements for more sailings and stay competitive in this growing niche market,” said Mike Evans, FESCO’s North American president. “With the improved frequency, our customers will see a quicker return on their investment and for our multi-global, Fortune 500 clients in the oil and gas, mineral, manufacturing industries, that is a big deal. The increased port calls are supported by a well established network in Russia – rail, truck, warehousing and Customs clearance – for a total logistics solution.”
