PAO Severstal, one of the world's largest vertically integrated steel and mining companies, is increasing the volume of steel products shipped in containers.
According to Evgeny Vinogradov, CEO of Severstal Russian Steel Division and resource assets, the company began to use the shipment of products in railway containers since 2014, at the moment it has reached the maximum volume. This is facilitated by the capabilities of the terminal located on the territory of the Cherepovets Metallurgical Plant.
“In the first half of 2020, CherMK shipped 311 thousand tons of metal products in railway containers. For 6 months of this year, this volume amounted to 364 thousand tons. We intend to keep this approach in the foreseeable future, since this type of delivery of products is economically profitable and corresponds to the client-oriented approach adopted by the company, "said Evgeny Vinogradov, General Director of the Severstal Russian Steel Division and resource assets.
The development of container transportation allows to provide a large number of customers with a high-quality service for the delivery of the company's products directly "to the door" and on time, guaranteeing its safety and convenience of storage, and also makes it possible to "reach" the most remote branches of consumers.
Container deliveries are in demand, mainly for consumers who do not have their own access roads, but for whom the preservation of the quality of rolled metal during transportation and acceptance is already at their warehouse is important.
Moreover, the Severstal online store -https://market.severstal.com/ru/ru allows you to track the delivery status of products by rail, and now you can order delivery of products by water, mixed transport or containers.
