URALCHEM is one of the biggest companies in the mineral fertilizers market in Russia, the CIS and Eastern Europe and this particular shipment was destined to be used as part of the synthesis process of chemical substances at its affiliated company, Azote.

As part of its total ‘cargo supermarket’ solution, ELC conducted an analysis of the cargo and engineered a special transportation construction to ensure its safe delivery.

Volga-Dnepr commenced the transport process by organising the movement of the heat exchanger by road from Bergamo to Milan’s Malpensa Airport. The Volga-Dnepr team also took responsibility for leasing cranes for the loading and unloading of the AN-124-100 freighter aircraft, managed the customs clearance process and organised road transport for the cargo to a temporary storage location in Palniki following its arrival in Russia, and then onto the customer’s Berezniki manufacturing plant.

“This delivery from Bergamo to Berezniki is a good example of the type of door-to-door solutions Volga-Dnepr’s Engineering & Logistics Centre now provides to customers on a regular basis to help them save time, to simplify complex logistics tasks, and to achieve greater cost efficiency. We were able to satisfy all of the customer’s conditions for the total transportation to Russia,” said Vladimir Vyshemirsky, Director of Volga-Dnepr Group’s Engineering & Logistics Centre.
