Consolidation of efforts and resources of the companies (operators, freight forwarders, cargo owners) into unified partners associations, as well as forms of interaction between the state, customs and private businesses have become key topics of discussion at the main transport conference of this year.
According to participants of the round table on "Trends and Prospects of transport infrastructure Development"
The conference presented the Russian international logistics alliance Accociated Cargo Experts (ACEX), established in 2013 by Russian and foreign transport companies together, as one of the real examples of the forms of cooperation in business. Alliance combines foreign forwarders, who are interested in developing business in Russia and the CIS, and transport companies from Moscow, St. Petersburg, Rostov-on-Don, Novorossiysk, Yekaterinburg and other key transport regions.
The main goal for the alliance members is to form logistics supply chain between the main transport hubs of Russia, anywhere in the country directly and without intermediaries.

Head of Associated Cargo Experts Alliance Miroslav Zolotarev said that logistics development at the moment - is the competence of private business, which needs to unite and consolidate for this purpose. However, the state at the same time must create the appropriate conditions in the form of transport infrastructure.
