Challenging winter for Van der Vlist Russia
The contract for storage and assembling of construction machines has led to a busy period at the terminal in St. Petersburg. Many backhoe and skid steer loaders, bulldozers and excavators have arrived to the terminal within the last couple of months. The technical representatives of the manufacturer visited our terminal to provide training for the technical staff of Van der Vlist in St. Petersburg. Meanwhile the construction machines have been assembled and released to the dealers.
Besides the construction machinery hundreds of trucks and vans have arrived at our terminal the last months. Heavy snow and abnormally cold weather made it a true challenge for our operations team. Van der Vlist Russia is also active in the agricultural market. Not only the storage in St. Petersburg but for example also the transport of harvesters from Germany and Poland to Russia.
For 2021 the expectations are positive for the construction machinery market, as well as for the truck and agricultural market.
