NLMK Group's Long Products Division has opened the first small-scale wholesale warehouse for long products sales in Yekaterinburg.
The new logistic site will allow the company to offer customers small-scale batches of rebars and metalware. The warehouse started to ship this month.
The covered warehouse is equipped with two cranes with a carrying capacity of 10 tonnes, convenient parking for heavy vehicles, and a room for drivers. Every day the warehouse will serve up to 15 vehicles. The one-time storage capacity is up to 6 thousand tonnes, depending on the product range.
The warehouse is located in the city of Yekaterinburg with convenient exits to the Yekaterinburg ring road, Chelyabinsk and Polevskoy highways. The warehouse will be open every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Dmitry Stopkevich, NLMK Long CEO, said: "In the Urals, the infrastructure of Long Products Division's companies is historically focused on rail shipments. This is logistically efficient for shipment of large quantities, but creates restrictions for time-sensitive small-scale supplies. We listened to our customers and learned that a retail sales warehouse was necessary. We hope that its opening will increase the efficiency and competitiveness of our business and our customers”.
