RUSCON, a leading container transport company in Russia, has significantly expanded its range of operations through the acquisition of SLG-Operating (Smart Logistics Group-Operating).
SLG-Operating is one of Russia’s largest logistics companies, offering warehouse and logistics services to a wide variety of customers including Microsoft, Pepsi, Danone, Castorama, Kimberly-Clark, Haier, Cargill and many others. It was named Best Logistics Operator in Russia at the 2014 EALA (Euro-Asian Logistics Association) Awards.
Vladimir Bychkov, CEO RUSCON, says: “This acquisition is a significant step for our business into the wider logistics market. SLG-Operating has unique expertise in operating A-class warehouse complexes and is a well-known brand at the logistics sector. It is a valuable addition to our group.”
SLG-Operating has a 60,000 sq metre complex at Chekhov City, near Moscow, with a capacity of more than 85,000 pallets, including climate-controlled sections.
The acquisition is part of RUSCON’s strategy to expand its services in the transport and logistics sector so it can offer the expertise and experience which the Russian import and export market increasingly needs.
