According to Yury Gilts, FESCO Vice-President & CFO, “…substantial increase of domestic demand for industrial and consumer goods in 1H 2011 in combination with FESCO’s successful development of high value added integrated logistics services enabled us to show good operational and financial performance. We grew not only in terms of volumes, but also, in pricing. Given the traditional seasonality of our business we expect even higher numbers in the 2nd half of the year, which supports our positive forecast for 2011 full year results”.
