Doing business in Russia presents huge potential commercial rewards – which sometimes requires very precise "risk management" and an intimate knowledge of sanctions and regulatory issues specific to logistics activity in this region.
Blackthorne can confidently assert that we are the leading freight logistics company in the world. There are one or two logistics companies which may do more turnover through some very high value contracts – but we have no other competition in respect of individual high-value and specialist freight activity into and out of Russia.
One of the reasons that we excel in Russian freight is that we understand and respect the Russian culture and have Russian associates with whom we have worked for decades and built established relationships with mutual trust.
Our dedicated Russian logistics team are all very experienced with the vagaries of freight activity in the region and can think autonomously and understand how to seamlessly navigate what can appear to be quite daunting and bureaucratic processes.
