The Lo­gis­tics of China’s Open Mar­ket

It is a sig­nif­i­cant move for the Chi­nese gov­ern­ment to or­ga­nize CIIE to firmly sup­port trade lib­er­al­iza­tion and ac­tively open the Chi­nese mar­ket to the world.

Rus­sian Rail­ways Lo­gis­tics ( RZD Lo­gis­tics) is the largest mul­ti­modal lo­gis­tics op­er­a­tor in Rus­sia, CIS coun­tries and the Baltic states. The com­pany was founded in 2010 with the mis­sion of de­vel­op­ing the lo­gis­tics seg­ment of Rus­sian Rail­ways. Des­ig­nated by Rus­sian Rail­ways as the sole co­or­di­na­tor of in­ter­na­tional rail­road tran­sit routes, the com­pany is an im­por­tant part­ner of China Rail­way Ex­press (CR Ex­press), an or­ga­ni­za­tion within the Belt and Road Ini­tia­tive frame­work aim­ing to con­nect China to Europe. In an­tic­i­pa­tion of the com­pany’s ar­rival at the up­com­ing China In­ter­na­tional Im­port Expo (CIIE) to be held in Shang­hai, Vi­ach­eslav Valen­tik, CEO of RZD Lo­gis­tics, granted an ex­clu­sive in­ter­view to Chi­napic­to­rial (CP).

CP: Why do you think China is or­ga­niz­ing CIIE?

Valen­tik: CIIE will act as an open plat­form for China to present its na­tional devel­op­ment achieve­ments to par­tic­i­pat­ing coun­tries, and it will also shine light on the readi­ness of all par­tic­i­pants to openly dis­cuss ma­jor is­sues re­lated to for­eign trade and the world econ­omy.

CP: What will your com­pany show at the event? And what do you ex­pect from CIIE?

Valen­tik: We are plan­ning to de­liver max­i­mum in­for­ma­tion to both Chi­nese and in­ter­na­tional cus­tomers on our in­ter­na­tional lo­gis­tics ser­vices. At this event in Shang­hai, we will show­case a num­ber of high-speed de­liv­ery ser­vices in which we see great po­ten­tial. For ex­am­ple, we are plan­ning to in­tro­duce our Rail­jet and Panda Land Bridge ser­vices.
