The event was attended by the members of the association and aimed at summarizing the results of 11 years of successful operations on the Russian market.

“Such events are of great use for business cooperation between the alliance and other associations in Russia,” comments Miroslav Zolotarev on the meeting results. "Before last year the Alliance was focused on cooperation with the foreign associations in order to incorporate the international logistics into the system of the Russian logistics. From 2015 ACEX Alliance has started to cooperate with the Russian associations and unions such as RILA, STELS, ULA. First of all, we are interested in cooperation with regional associations which know the specificity of their regions and orientate in the market environment. Our country is huge and due to mentality the business peculiarities vary in different regions. In order to provide unified standards of service and approach to cooperation with the foreign partners we, as an alliance, should interact and cooperate with other Russian associations.”
During the meeting the “Agency of Customs Logistics” (AСL), the representative from Samara region, one of the leading members of RILA with 11 years of experience, signed an accession agreement with the ACEX Alliance. In the beginning of July the companies also agreed to meet in Togliatti and Ulyanovsk and conduct negotiations with the clients and the alliance partners from Japan.
The role of such associations as RILA and international ACEX Alliance is to unite the members and defend their interests at different levels, including business and state authorities. According to Alexander Lisin, the CEO of the Russian Intermodal Logistics Association “the key factors for the alliances and associations attractiveness are the possibility to start stable partnership which cannot be imitated, substituted or replaced. This is the ticket to success for the members of the association in the difficult time of “turbulence”.
