  • MK AU

    We were interested in Russian partners who can help us to process cargo deliveries by sea, at present we get inquires for transportation from Malaysia to Russia, we want to establish cooperation on a regular basis, as cooperation between our countries is developing.

  • Tran Huy Hien
    Tran Huy Hien Daco Logistics (Vietnam)

    Export to Russia is increasing if we talk about such products as mobile phones and spare parts for them, as well as computers, as for import to Vietnam, such products as food stuff, milk, equipment and spare parts are imported from Russia.

  • Alexey Lipatov
    Alexey Lipatov CARGO-EXPRESS (Moscow, Russia)

    I know for sure that all meetings were efficient, all agents were interesting. We solved many questions connected with organization of work with Russia. At first everybody was suspicious but left the conference with clear understanding and full of determination

  • Anna Sklyarova
    Anna Sklyarova Air Cargo Service (Nizhny Novgorod, Russia)

    I liked the format of the conference. In addition to the official meetings we had a lot of opportunities to speak with each other in informal atmosphere. In future I will be happy to participate in such event

  • Kamran Aleskerov
    Kamran Aleskerov AG Global Logistic (Baku, Azerbaijan)

    Now our company has a good alternative to request ACEX partners for different transportations. For example, we are starting to receive rates from European ACEX agents. And we are very pleased with them. We have already made tens of requests for both international and Russian companies. So we have felt efficiency of our participation at the conference

  • Koji Sugimura
    Koji Sugimura Hankyu Hanshin Express (Japan)

    We export seeds to Rostov-on-Don, as well as spare parts for vehicles to Moscow and Saint Petersburg, that is why the meeting with the company from Novorossiysk was of great use for us.

  • Lev Bondarev
    Lev Bondarev FF Cargo Services (Moscow, Russia)

    The event was organized with an excellent mark. We felt it very productive to meet at "your platform" some regional Russian forwarders (who are also our customers), including those whom we recommended for the Alliance membership

  • Maria Moskvicheva
    Maria Moskvicheva Buro Perevozok (Rostov-on-Don, Russia)

    Such negotiations are extremely important tools in our work. Potential partners who are ready to set up business relations come altogether into one place at one time. Another most important aspect is a direct personal contact because it will help understand any person better than a website, or an advertising, or a company presentation (which add on the necessary features but don’t substitute for the main one – ability to see, to talk to, and to feel a human being)

  • Roberto Franco Colucci
    Roberto Franco Colucci World Cargo (Italy)

    I have found the negotiations/meetings extremely interesting. For us your market was always a “black hole” with many doubts and uncertainties, but now it seems we have found the right connections in this area. We have learned a lot in only a couple of days, and I am sure we still need to learn a lot more

  • Safwan Tannir
    Safwan Tannir ARAMEX (United Arab Emirates)

    The ACEX conference, held in Moscow, was a brilliant idea to start with. Almost all the one-to-one meetings I have had, have the potential to turn into mutual business. Simple idea, brilliant execution, top-notch organization and a very successful outcome indeed! We came in as strangers, left as friends. With plenty of contacts, name cards and promising opportunities in hand

  • Farzad Saffarzadeh

    Owing to the changes in political situation, the market of Iran has started to gain momentum very rapidly. Having advantageous geographical location, Iran is a transit country which permits to decrease delivery terms up to 10 – 11 days. 60-70% of cargo comes to the CIS countries, less than 5% (airfreight and road transportations) account for Russia. Because of sanctions the volume of deliveries of fruit and vegetables from Iran is increasing.

  • Stephan Haltmayer
    Stephan Haltmayer Quick Cargo Service (Germany)

    By meeting face to face with the partners I feel much more confident to working together and giving credit to people I did not know in the past. ‎Trust is the basics in our business. This is very important to start doing business. Hopefully the group will grow. The next target should be 100 members to give more opportunities to all participants

  • Julia Nikiforova
    Julia Nikiforova Optima Freight (Helsinki, Finland)

    Day after day the communication was becoming easier and more interesting. The conference location was chosen very successfully; the hotel was wonderful in terms of convenience, food and service. The organization was at high level what might have been pleasant for those who often attend such events in different countries
