Explore our material on the construction progress at the logistics complex that will transform the country's logistics flow of goods and services.

By the start of summer, the Deng Xiaoping Logistics Complex had achieved a readiness level of 53%. The project team provided this update.

As of today, the railway infrastructure has reached 60% completion of its total plan. By the end of May, the builders had finished constructing the embankment of the abutment path and began working on the sandy base, which is now 77% complete. Furthermore, excavation work is ongoing at the site for the automatic train control system, alarm system, signaling circuit, as well as the installation of a rain sewer.

The construction of the logistics complex building is progressing steadily. As of the beginning of June, significant milestones have been achieved. The installation of the concrete slab at the container site has commenced, while the roof installation has reached 76% of its total volume. Additionally, the installation of enclosing structures made of sandwich panels has advanced to 43%. Furthermore, the installation of metal structures for the frame is nearing completion, with a progress rate of 97%.

Recall that the Deng Xiaoping Logistics Complex, spanning an area of 65 hectares, will become the largest in Russia. This complex will facilitate seamless logistics between China and the Volga Federal District. The 1.05-kilometer container yard will enable the simultaneous loading and unloading of an entire container train, eliminating the need for additional shunting operations.

This logistics complex will provide a comprehensive range of services, including cargo storage, loading and unloading, order management, inventory tracking, weighing, labeling, and shipment consolidation. With an impressive design capacity of 100,000 containers per year, this facility will significantly impact regional logistics operations.

Alabuga's adoption of best international practices will guarantee high efficiency and minimize logistical costs for its logocenter customers.
