LOGISTICAL CONCEPT FOR THE COMPLETE SET-UP OF A FERTILIZER PLANT IN A REMOTE AREA OF TATARSTAN
The Regional Giant in
Russia. A territory almost twice the size of the United States, or four times as big as the European Union.
A huge country with far-from-ordinary challenges and mega-projects requiring logistics solutions that are both complex and unique. For countries around the world, infrastructure is both an asset and a liability: an asset because it is the basis of all economic activity, but a liability because it must be maintained, updated, modernized and expanded.
This is no different in Russia, but infrastructure here is also subject to a number of additional challenges, such as the nation's sheer geographical size as the world's largest country and temperature variations in some regions of up to 60 °C between summer and wintertime.
“Our biggest challenge in arranging the transports was the missing infrastructure”
Stefan Klukowski, Project Manager at deugro.
Logistical Concept for a Fertilizer Plant
