This event was devoted to transport and forwarding of cargoes, tariffs and State regulation, logistics of freight stations, transport junctions and terminals in other words, everything that has to do with transport branch and calls for constant perfection.

Among our partners there were Novorossiysk Port Terminal and VARAMAR. Media support was provided by Transport of Russia, AVTOTRANSINFO, and InfraNews Agency.

The conference was opened by Mr. Vladimir Nekhvyadovich, General Manager of Chandler Group, who told the attendees about application of latest technologies for shipment of heavy/out-of-gauge loads and forward-looking developments. Chandler Group is one of the leaders in heavy logistics market which has a rich experience in the most difficult kinds of transportation. In his speech Vladimir cited certain examples of how a weak or dilapidated bridge may be a serious hindrance for letting through multi-axle vehicle carrying extra heavy equipment. That is why, in order to reduce stress on pavement and supporting abutments, we need to use various combinations of module trailers and latest bed-type hydraulic systems. Also Mr. Vladimir Nekhvyadovich spoke about safety of control systems applied at transport, handling and storage of high-tech equipment.

General Manager of AsstrA Forwarding AG Mr. Oleg Germanovich presented his speech Combined delivery of heavy and oversized cargoes with loading on railway. Showing real examples of heavy shipments performed by AsstrA Forwarding AG, Oleg described schemes, estimates and particulars of routes and transportation of given types of cargoes.

Alexei Bezborodov, General Manager of InfraNews Agency made his own outlook for fitting platform market till 2015. The topic is actual taking into account the fact that large volumes of cargo lots are carried in containers.

Russian companies are traditionally interested in experience of their CIS colleagues; therefore we invited the leading Ukrainian transport operators as speakers. Roman Volovik, Forwarding Department Manager of INSHI MEREZHI Ltd spoke about Ukrainian experience of out-of-gauge transportation dwelling upon challenges and outlook for motor heavy transport. Then, Alexander Varvarenko, director of VARAMAR, highlighted shipment of heavy and oversized cargoes through Black Sea ports.

Another session was devoted to motor transportation. State regulations for motor transportation of heavy and oversized cargoes by Konstantin Ugarov, Director of Russian Road Service, was especially interesting for the attendees. He dwelled on carriers responsibility and illegal transportation of abnormal loads which often leads to serious accidents. He also told that in near future electronic registration system will be implemented for this sector of transportation.

The topic was developed by Alexander Merzlikin, department head of Russian State Road Research Institute who made a speech about design of special projects for heavy haulage via Federal roads. Lev Shoikhet with International Motor Carriers Association also made a final contribution to the theme presenting his report about improved process of issuing special licenses for heavy transportation in Russia.

Today this company has its own production sites in Russia and offers not only best-quality trucks and spares but also a number of tailor-made services, such as drivers training, Call Center and interactive transport data system DynaFleet.

Alexei Polyanskikh, head of direct sales of Russian Navigation Technologies touched upon application of satellite technologies for safety and monitoring of heavy transportation.

The last session was comprised by specially focused engineering reports. Research Institute of Railway Transport made a presentation about requirements to safe fastening of heavy-lift cargoes on railway platforms. In turn, Mr. Oleg Karpovich with Central Research Institute of Marine Fleet told about the same requirements on vessels.

Of great significance was presentation of first professional edition HEAVY LIFT Russia, magazine in the Russian language dedicated to heavy transportation in Russia and CIS.
