NDO offers Russia freight option

[ May 19, 2014   //   ]

Norbert Dentressangle Overseas, the forwarding arm of the French-owned logistics company, has launched new services from the UK to Russia. Following its acquisition of the freight forwarding activities of the Daher Group in September last year, Norbert Dentressangle has secured a significant presence in the Russian market, employing more than 100 people in three offices in Moscow, Ekaterinburg and Saint Petersburg.

NDO is offering daily express and weekly consolidated air freight services, along with consolidated and full load ocean freight/road service options, together with a complete Customs brokerage and clearance service, with seven customs terminals in key locations.

UK commercial manager for Norbert Dentressangle’s Freight Forwarding division, Matt Young, said: “Russia represents a massive opportunity for UK companies, however, it is still one of the most challenging markets to do business in. While there are plenty of options for getting freight to Russia, the country’s customs regulations and procedures are extremely complex and subject to change without notice, creating a barrier to successful trading. NDO could however offer a fast and accurate service that guarantees compliance with local Customs regulations, he said.
