"I have no doubts that our joint efforts with BLG will enable us to offer clients attractive automotive logistics services, supporting our ambitions to develop this joint venture in one of the leading players on the Russian market within the next 5 years, combining sea transportation and port handling of vehicles in the European part of Russia and in the Far-East with rail and truck transportation of both imported and locally assembled cars", says Sergey Generalov, President and CEO of FESCO.

The Russian car market is forecasted to grow at an average rate of 15% per year to become soon the biggest car market in Europe by number of units.
