GCS adds two automotive customers to Novorossiysk operation
Global Container Services (GCS), a key logistics provider for the automotive industry, has won two more customers for the fully tailored supply chain services it operates via the Russian port of Novorossiysk. The company is now carrying CKD auto parts from the Black Sea port to assembly plants in Cherkessk for both the Taiwanese manufacturer Luxgen (SUV and premium class) and the Chinese brand Brilliance Auto. Containers arriving at the Nutep terminal in Novorossiysk are taken by blocktrain or bonded trucks operated by the GCS subsidiary Ruscon, to the Derways assembly plant in Cherkessk, some 470 km away. GCS schedules its trains, carrying 54-56 40 ft containers, to meet the production needs of the plants, ensuring a reliable and steady supply of components to the assembly lines.
