November 29 - 30, the Third International Conference "PULP AND PAPER INDUSTRY OF RUSSIA - NEW REALITIES, NEW OPPORTUNITIES”. AsstrA once again became one of the active representatives of the logistics industry at the conference.
Every year, the Russian pulp and paper conference gathers executives and owners of companies involved in the production, trade and use of pulp and paper products. This year's conference in Vienna was attended by representatives of the largest Russian pulp and paper mills, companies producing chemistry, raw materials and equipment for pulp and paper industry, leading specialists of project and service companies, as well as representatives of interested ministries and authorities.
The issues directly and indirectly related to the pulp and paper industry were touched upon, including the transportation and optimization of supply chains for such goods as cellulose, cardboard, roll paper, cardboard packaging and oversized special equipment.
For AsstrA Wood & Paper Logistics, participation in the conference has become a tradition. Anna Kostina, Sales Specialist of the AsstrA Wood & Paper Logistics project, spoke about the specifics and results of the participation this year:
"We see the growing interest in this event in the dynamics of three years both for Russian and foreign companies. The number of participants increases as well as the geographical scope of their activities. For AsstrA, the conference provides an opportunity for one of the first to get acquainted with the development trends of pulp and paper in Russia and to plan further actions based on real changes in the market. The Pulp and Paper Conference is a unique event that brings together unique specialists for the exchange of real experience. We learn about new projects for the construction and modernization of enterprises, we are negotiating about the upcoming large consignments of goods and give our clients and potential partners effective recommendations for improving their transportation processes. Our communication with industry representatives is based on AsstrA's many years of experience in transporting goods for the pulp and paper industry by road, sea and rail.
Intensive B2B meetings with top management allow not only to discuss a number of current working issues in just two days, but also to plan development with representatives of strategically important companies for us. This year, we held talks with a number of major players in the pulp and paper industry and look forward to fruitful cooperation in the new 2018. "
