TransContainer, EFKO and Evropac Intend to Increase Vegetable Oil Export Shipments to China
PJSC TransContainer of Delo Group, transport and logistics company Evropac, and EFKO, one of the largest food companies in Russia, have agreed to develop cooperation to increase the volume of export shipments of vegetable oil to China.
The respective memorandum was signed by Aleksandr Isurin, President of TransContainer, Valery Rudyuk, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Evropac, and Maxim Borisov, Director of Transport Logistics Division of EFKO.
The memorandum is aimed at expanding cooperation and increasing the volume of export shipments of EFKO products to China through TransContainer’s terminal at Pridacha station (Voronezh) and Zabaikalsk border-crossing point, as well as the ports of the Russian Far East and Novorossiysk. The cargo is destined for consignees in the Chinese cities of Shanghai, Tianjin, Qingdao, Chongqing, Nantong, Yingkou and Huangpu.
As part of the transportation, TransContainer provides EFKO with containers and platforms, and also provides Evropac with all-inclusive rates for railway cargo transportation. Evropac, in its turn, provides innovative flexi-tank containers and is engaged in forwarding and shipment of cargo. For its part, EFKO forms transportation plan, and also provides information on the destinations and volumes required for transportation.
“We have been effectively cooperating with our partners in the export transportation of oil from Voronezh for several years. The signed document will allow us to bring our cooperation to a new level and to completely implement the experience accumulated by TransContainer for further volume increase,” noted Aleksandr Isurin.
“The memorandum signing is a crucial step in developing long-standing partnership of Evropac, EFKO, and TransContainer. In the new economic environment, we intend to increase supply to China and through the signed agreement we will be able to effectively schedule dispatches of oil-and-fat products from Voronezh region to the ultimate consumer in China via inland border-crossing points. This will give the local producers significant competitive advantages with respect to the logistics cost as well as the time of delivery of vegetable oil to China,” said Valery Rudyuk
