Under the contract, FESCO will transport equipment from China, Korea and Germany to the construction site in industrial park Uzlovaya in the Tula region. Transportation from Asian countries will be based on FESCO’s intermodal chain, which includes marine lines via the Commercial Port of Vladivostok, block trains to Moscow and motor transport to the place of destination. The estimated completion date of deliveries is September 2018. Under the contract, it is planned to deliver about 1150 containers and oversized heavy equipment (pressing, painting lines and pressing equipment lines for production of body parts).
“Cooperation with the Great Wall Motor is in line with our strategy aimed at development of project logistics, expansion of the portfolio of contracts with major customers and increasing the amount of work with oversized equipment. We will ensure a timely quality delivery of the equipment using the technologies of accelerated transportations worked out during the project ‘Shanghai-Moscow in 20 days’”, Aleksandrs Isurins, the President of FESCO said.
In autumn 2015, Great Wall Motors started construction of an own plant for manufacturing Haval cars in the Tula region.
