January 20 - GTE Logistics has delivered four Perlini quarry trucks, with a total weight of 35 tonnes, from Italy to Vladivostok - the first time that such trucks have been delivered to Russia.

The quarry trucks, which had the dimensions 8.6 m x 3.7 m x 3.7 m, were first transported on trailers a distance of 100 km from Verona to the Port of Marghera in Venice.

From Venice the cargo was delivered to the Port of Vladivostok on a chartered vessel, before being disassembled in Russia to reduce the cost of the next stage of transportation to Yakutia.

In Yakutia the trucks were reassembled and are currently being used at mining sites.
