From October 13-15, Almaty hosted the TransLogisticа Kazakhstan 2021, the 24th event in this series of international logistics exhibitions.
TransLogistica Kazakhstan is the largest event in Central Asia in the field of transport and logistics services and technologies. In 2021, despite pandemic-related restrictions, companies from Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Russia, Ukraine, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia took part in the exhibition.
Experts from the AsstrA-Associated Traffic AG group of companies warmly welcomed visitors to the company’s own stand at the event.
Ramila Akhmetova, AsstrA Almaty Branch Manager, shares her impressions of the exhibition and highlights that all three days of the event were very fruitful: “Numerous meetings and talks with both current and potential partners were held non-stop. Based on the scale and organizational quality of this year’s event, we look forward to participating again next year."
Anel Izbasarova, Sales Specialist at AsstrA, noted that the exhibition was dynamic and productive: “The highly business-like atmosphere was nice. We received many requests for quotes, and we have already signed an agreement as a result of discussions held at the exhibition.”
“TransLogistica is a platform bringing together the region’s top logistics players in one place. There were many visitors, and interest in the company's services – express container trains in particular – was quite high,” says Oksana Lysogor, Rail Transportation Specialist at AsstrA.
“After so long working remotely, there was a clear need for in-person communication and face-to-face meetings. In order to get to know each other better and discuss prospects for cooperation, partners tried to spend as much time at our stand as possible. Our business cards and brochures were hot commodities, and we were constantly resupplying our marketing materials,” observes Tatyana Gaevskaja, Head of the AsstrA Trade and Contract Logistics Department.
Dmitrij Gerber, Head of the AsstrA Railway Transportation Department, also notes that the exhibition was busy and effective. “We had a tightly booked schedule of meetings. The discussions with vehicle owners as well as directors and top managers of carriers were particularly productive and informative. We discussed a number of important issues, received valuable information about market trends, and outlined ways to deepen our relationships."
