Estonian logistics firms participate in TransRussia fair


Logistics fair TransRussia, held at the end of April in Moscow, was an important customer contact event for the fifteen Estonian transit companies that participated in the event with a joint stand organised by Enterprise Estonia and the Estonian Logistics and Transit Association.

The head of the association, Andres Valgerist, said that participating in the region’s leading fair together helps the companies to better market the Estonian transit sector as a whole. Russia is very important to Estonia as a logistics partner, and the aim for participation is to maintain existing contacts and reaffirm our messages, he said.   

Andrei Birov from the Port of Sillamäe said that the interest towards Estonia’s stand this year was much bigger than previously. Birov said that it is much more effective to be represented with a joint stand than to go alone because it results in more contacts, attention and PR. 

Estonian Railways has participated in the fair for ten years. It is important to be present at the fair each year in order to remind our customers, the company’s development director, Toomas Uiboupin, said. He added that the location of Estonia’s stand was good this year. Both companies said that entertainment activities — a concert by Estonia’s popular singer Anne Veski and a barmen show — helped to bring attention to the stand.

Estonian companies participating at the stand included the Port of Tallinn, the Port of Sillamäe, Paldiski North Port, CF&S Estonia, Baltic Rail, Contimer, RRK, ERS, Estonian Railways, EVR Cargo, Fast Train, Maru, Spacecom, Vopak EOS and the Logistics and Transit Association.
