To support the growing business in Russia, Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics has opened a new office in Moscow in addition to its current presence in St Petersburg.

Moscow is the central vehicle logistics hub in Russia, a market that, after a short set-back in 2009, has seen rapid growth in the automotive and rolling equipment sector over the past years. “Automotive and rolling equipment importers as well as foreign companies building up local production have their main offices in Moscow , and we want to be close in order to support their logistics needs in the best possible way,” says Søren Tousgaard Jensen, Managing Director for WWL Russia. The city is also a hub for several rail and trucking companies, important partners that support Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics in its ambition to deliver factory to dealer solutions for their customers logistics needs, be it on land or at sea.

The Moscow office, located on Kalanchevskaya street 16, close to Leningradskiy railway station, will be run by Boris Kaportsev, Corporate Account Manager for Rolling equipment customers, and Dmitri Vostrikov, Corporate Account Manager for Auto customers. Boris Kaportsev and Dmitri Vostrikov both live in Moscow and are very familiar with locations and customers. The St. Petersburg office will continue to be the WWL head office in Russia. St. Petersburg with its port is the primary location for import and export, and home base for many of the companies’ breakbulk and project cargo customers and forwarders.

WWL has been operating in Russia since 2003, establishing a fully owned branch office in St Petersburg in 2009. That same year, the company started calling St Petersburg with a frequent service from Gothenburg and Bremerhaven via Kotka in Finland. The company now has improved the service, offering ocean transport to and from St Petersburg and Ust-Luga, as well as ports in Finland and Estonia, based on transshipment solutions with short-sea carriers. WWL also offers connectivity to inland locations in Russia/CIS for both export and import of cars and rolling equipment.
