Understand the Russian logistics industry
Russia entered 2008 with its economy looking strong based on exports of commodities, particularly energy, which were at all time high prices. With the onset of the economic downturn the situation in 2009 has deteriorated rapidly.
In addition to macro-economic worries, the Russian business environment is one of the most challenging in the world. Inefficiency, bureaucracy and corruption are rife. Within the transport and logistics sector, lack of investment has resulted in weak infrastructure compared with international standards.
Systemic structural problems combine with the vast geography of the country; mountainous and desert regions as well as an inhospitable climate to make the challenges facing the transport industry unique.
However despite these problems, the Russian market continues to offer some of the best long term prospects in Europe for logistics and express companies.
Not only is the country a major source of oil, gas and minerals, but it has a fast growing consumer society. The wealth generated in the past few years has meant that there has been high demand for West European and global products, particularly high value and luxury.
Foreign direct investment has been poured into industries, such as the automotive, by multinationals keen to take advantage of the growth in levels of disposable income.
International logistics and express companies have followed their clients into the market, piggybacking on their expansion, and at the same time creating international and domestic networks to facilitate the flow of commerce.
