DB Schenker Opens New office in Kaluga
The new branch will provide clients with the full range of the companyâ€™s services, such as international and domestic land transport including rail forwarding, air and ocean freight, contract logistics and supply chain management, customs clearance, and special projects, such as global projects, oversized and heavy-lift cargo etc.
Nadezhda Martynova worked before as a manager of the joint project of DB Schenker Logistics and DB Schenker Rail on parts delivery via rail for the LLC Volkswagen Group Rus plant in Kaluga.
DB Schenker Rail Automotive is responsible for the implementation of the logistics concept to supply the Volkswagen/Skoda plant in Kaluga. DB Schenker is the general contractor and since 2008 has coordinated the services of six freight railways, various operators, as well as other sub-contractors between Central Europe and VWâ€™s location in Russia.
OJSC TransContainer, a subsidiary of Russian Railways, RZD, works closely with DB Schenker in the project.
Karl Nutzinger, member of the management board of Schenker responsible for land transport and the European regions, said: â€œOur existing collaboration with the market players in the Russian automotive cluster as well as with other industries has accelerated our decision to establish a special Kaluga branch.
Anatoly Gvozdev, managing director of ZAO Schenker, said: â€œOur local presence will make it easier to support the activities of customers in the region. And it will contribute to develop solid relations with potential clients and local investors."
Will the move strengthen DB Schenker's presence in Russia?
