We used Transfennica Logistics, loading 2 x 45ft GP Containers in Pontypridd which then shipped Tilbury to St Petersburg on vessel Pauline Russ. Upon arrival at St Petersburg the containers were shipped by road to their end destination in Moscow, where Customs clearance was affected.
Communication between Concrete Canvas, Chambers & Cook Freight, Transfennica In Russia, and the clearance agent Asstra Rus was ongoing to ensure all documents were approved prior to despatch to avoid any holdups with Russian Customs.
Darren Hughes, International Business Development Manager at Concrete Canvas, said:
“Concrete Canvas Ltd have been supplying their material into the Russian Federation for the past 3 years for major projects in the Petrochemical and Mining sectors for companies such as Exxon Mobil and Alrosa to name a few.”
“Our vision is to expand on this work and capitalise on the Civil Markets there, which are some of the largest in the World. With this in mind, we have recently signed a partnership agreement and United Concrete Canvas Russia has been formed to gain all of the certification and validation processes that allow us to work with all of the major state organisations there. The material delivered was for construction of our Russian Centre of Excellence which will be used to educate and train designers and engineers in this new material innovation.”
