July 8 - LC Volgo-Baltic Logistic (VBL), one of Russia's largest freight agencies, has signed an exclusive agreement with Jumbo Shipping and becomes the heavy lift shipping company's exclusive commercial agent for Russia and the Commonwealth of Independen

By joining experience and fleet-possibilities, the two companies will be able to meet customers' needs for lifting, shipping, pre-carriage and on-carriage of oversized and overweight cargoes to and from the Russian (inland) waterways and seaports throughout the world.

For Jumbo Shipping this is both the logical outcome and continuation of its strategy to enter new markets. The same goes for VBL's strategy of increasing its already solid market-share in transporting project cargo.

LC Volgo-Baltic Logistic manages a fleet of 149 sea and river-going vessels and a large number of tugs and barges.
