On November 17, 2016 the 9th Conference “Heavy Russia” took place in Moscow. Within 9 years the Conference has become the largest event in the branch, gaining recognition of business as a point of attraction of ideas and the venue for discussion of pressing issues. The Conference is the annual event and this year the Forum gathered over 320 delegates from 17 world countries: Russia, Belarus, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Iran, Germany, Turkey, Estonia, Latvia, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria and the USA.

The event was sponsored by FESCO, Volga-Dnepr Airlines, Instar Logistics, COMETTO, Gudzon Shipping Company and Port of Bronka.

The opening speech of the Conference was made by Marat Yarullin, Head of Sales Department, Fesco Transport Group. In his opinion, the last decade has drastically changed the landscape in logistics sphere on the whole and in project logistics sphere in particular. What is felt is the strong impact of the phenomenon called the market barbarization. Barbarization implies avoidance to follow regulatory requirements in combination with corruption covering this kind of avoidance. It means that if a carrier comes up with a legal shipping proposal it finds itself outside the market as its proposal is out of competition in terms of price and schedule if compared to offers of sketchy carriers acting with violation of all technical and ethical standards one could think of.

Avoidance of regulatory requirements and withdrawal into the shadows act as a big temptation for an entrepreneur and, as a rule, it cannot help resisting this temptation. Everything happens according to Milton Friedman’s covenants: a man always searches for money and benefit, right here and now. There is nothing new in this, but as a result, barbarization prevented from implementing the industry-specific standards.

Other project logistics trends reported by M. Yarullin are progression of bulky and heavy cargoes following geological exploration in the Arctic, active bulky transport market in Central Asia and the third trend is the crisis of major international carriers and re-orientation of clients towards middle-sized shipping companies.

The main activities in Russia are concentrated in the central regions, 90% of orders are ensured by power industry, and in the next ten years the energy sector activity related to modernization of main and additional capacities will remain. A number of large-scale projects are coming from chemical industry. On top of that, M. Yarullin highlighted the growth in export of oversize equipment. This is mainly power engineering and, to some extent, petrochemical equipment. Basically, the goods are exported through St. Petersburg.

Panel discussion “How to organize transportation of above-limit cargoes in compliance with the RF law” combined the representatives of the federal bodies and business society in a violent dispute. We would like to make specific mention of the speech made by Konstantin Sergeevich Ugarov, Director of Center for Monitoring of Safe Operation of Highways of the Federal Road Agency, who was standing up for the position of the state. During the discussion, K. Ugarov and his colleagues clarified on some regulations which are still questioned by the general public.

Another important topic of the Conference is development of wind energy in the country which is becoming a new oversize transport market in Russia. It is worth mentioning that by 2024 the wind power capacity in our country may come to 3.6 GW, while market turnover may reach RUB 200 billion. In less than 10 years, potential demand for construction of wind power plants in Russia, fabrication of wind mills, accessories, and operation and maintenance services will approach RUB 400 billion. Rosatom only intends to supply about 600 wind-driven generators with a total capacity of 1.6 GW to the Russian market in the next 6-7 years.

Another growing point for the transport and forwarding business is the status of specialized machinery production in Russia. This subject was covered by RosSpetsMash Association’s speech. Denis Maksimkin, Association Deputy Director, gave the following statistics: export of agricultural equipment from Russia in the first six months of 2017 increased by 1.5 times to RUB 4.1 billion. Exported harvesting machinery rose by 10.3% — to 1040 units, agricultural tractors – by 2.2 times to 178, post-harvest treatment machinery — by 63% to 194, sowing equipment — sevenfold to 407, tillage machinery — by 17.5% to 430. Main importers of Russian agricultural machinery in the first six months include CIS and European countries, China, Canada and Iran. At the moment, the geography of Russian equipment supplies covers more than 50 countries.
