Acron Group participated for the first time in the PRO//MOTION.1520 International Transport and Logistics Forum held in Sochi 1-3 October 2018.
Acron’s representatives took part in the business forum on a wide range of issues, including global transportation infrastructure, eco-friendly technologies, improving transit traffic efficiency and the potential of digital solutions.
Acron Group is developing its own transportation and logistics infrastructure, which will contribute to the development of Russia’s transportation industry and the national economy. The Group is currently implementing a new strategy to increase transshipment volumes via Russian ports. In May 2018, Acron transshipped its complex fertilisers through Murmansk bulk terminal. In June 2018, the Group signed a long-term agreement with European Sulphur Terminal LLC to transship mineral fertilisers.
Acron Vice President for Logistics and Transportation Igor Bogdan noted: The Group has built new railroads at its facilities, which use state-of-the-art technologies and multifunctional electronic systems. It has also upgraded its rolling stock to ensure timely and uninterrupted shipment of fertilisers. In addition, Acron is converting to new, more cost efficient railcars with higher lift capacity. In 2018, Acron Group will transport over 8.5 mn tonnes of commodities and finished products.
Acron Group has a wholly owned transportation and logistics infrastructure, including three Baltic seaport terminals. The Group’s logistics arm, Acron-Trans, handles cargo transportation on the domestic market and to seaports with a fleet of over 3,700 railcars.
