Dear valued customers, current and future!
Dear valued colleagues!
I’m sitting at home in an embrace with my new obsessive friend Covid, sad that I can’t congratulate you on the beautiful date of our anniversary, hug you, and drink whiskey with you!
For a person 10 years is a happy childhood age of conscious perception of the world, for business — a serious adult milestone. We can confidently be proud that we survived, did not bow to difficulties, survived the crises, and even have made a significant profit this wild leap year. Logistics has radically changed since 2014 due to well-known circumstances. The volume of international road transportation has decreased by several times. Even with kickbacks, you can’t steer to the state-owned companies — this domain has long been firmly occupied by “their own” from the “untouchable” caste and their numerous relatives and friends. Electronic tendering — “don’t make me laugh”, as they say in Odessa. Big foreign companies existing on the market work only with logistics monsters having multibillion turnovers, and look at us right through. Large private domestic cargo owners work on the principle of waste-free production and create their own logistics companies to service their own cargo flows. Only “not finished off” representatives of small and medium-sized businesses with and without foreign capital are left, who are forced to save every penny, and switch to working with carriers directly, choosing the cheapest one on the Internet. Someone promptly rushed to develop the Chinese direction and succeeded, until my friend Covid came, which slowed down the cargo flow from Southeast Asia for a long time. We are still focusing on the logistics of combined cargo and 3PL service in international traffic and increasing the share of domestic transportation. In 2021 we are launching LCL service from India and LTL from Turkey. The pandemic makes it slow: both the Turks and the Hindus need meeting, looking into each other’s eyes, they do not like Skype and Zoom. We continue to develop our unique interactive B2B software with electronic archiving, hoping to bring it to marketable condition, and to patent it as a separate product. We are actively implementing electronic document flow. In spite of Covid, we have three new vacancies. One has been already occupied – our trainee Nikita Zakharov was demobbed from the army, but we still need a very good salesman (or, even better, a saleswoman with 90 x 60 x 90) and a sailor with extensive experience. We are also planning to engage in railway transportation, but not all at once: in order not to tear your pants, you need to have a sense of proportion and limit the width of the pace.
Once again, I congratulate you on a wonderful anniversary!
Wish you happiness, health, success in work and at home!
I hope we will celebrate the next anniversary in 10 years together in an adult way!
With love and respect,
Your Anatoliy Gutynin
