ACF 2020


MUNICH: May 17, 2017. Meeting at the transport logistic trade fair last week, members of Russia's Associated Cargo Experts Alliance (ACEX) and the Committee on International Cooperation of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RSPP), signed an agreement to develop logistics services worldwide.

Oleg Dunaev, chairman of the RSPP transport and logistics subcommittee, signed the memorandum together with Uwe Leuschner, CEO of DB Cargo Russia. Other signatories included representatives from ACEX members in Switzerland, the Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Finland, Latvia, Ukraine and the UAE.

ACEX 1ACEX includes 50 independent logistics companies in Russia, the CIS and Baltic countries plus 50 members worldwide. According to ACEX director Miroslav Zolotarev, the group is also a member of the World Freight Alliance, China Cargo Alliance, Global Project Logistics Network, AirCargoGroup and Worldwide Cargo Marketing network.

Exhibiting for the first time at transport logistic, members from Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Togliatti, Kazan, the Baltic States and Finland shared a stand with the RSPP.

Nikita Kovalevsky, CEO of ACEX Finland member Optima Freight compared the event to a 3D logistics model: "When you come to transport logistic you see all the scale of the logistics world. Maybe the image can become even more vivid if I compare the exhibiting with the moment when a watch-master opens a watch and sees the mechanism working through the microscope. Everything becomes clear," he added.

Zolotarev said the ACEX goal by 2018 was to double the membership in Russia, the CIS, the Baltic countries and worldwide to produce a combined turnover of €10 billion.

Leuschner commented: "Business people do not know when the [Russian] sanctions will be lifted, but we are prepared to work in Russia and present our ideas and concepts, provide better quality and better prices. It is our long-term policy. When a delegation of German business people and I recently met president Putin, he assured us that Russia will be improving conditions for foreign investors and guarantee security of development of their businesses."

ACEX said the Russian logistics booth was organized under the umbrella of the RSPP and was intended to demonstrate modern technologies "in the field of freight forwarding, EDI-declaring, IT logistics solutions, programs of legal and foreign economic support for cargo owners worldwide".
