The feedback from TransRussia was promising

NECL II -project and Port of Kaskinen took part in TransRussia 2012 -exhibition in Moscow during 23-27 April and the interest towards the alternative east-west transport corridor and it´s services along was positive.
The aim of the joint stand was to promote the east-west corridor to especially Russian and Baltic operators and also get important contacts along the corridor far east.

The first impression was that an east-west transport corridor in the Nordics awake interest in lot of operators. Alternative routes and new initiatives are explored and welcomed. NECL II and the partners will evaluate the outcome of the exhibition later on and see which contacts develop into further actions.

The MNGTC -stand was visited by a lot of people who were interested to know more about the east-west Midnordic Green Transport Corridor and the services provided along the corridor. The Port of Kaskinen and its operators (eg. Baltic Bulk) and also the new planned logistics center in Seinäjoki were presented at the stand for several new contacts.
Especially the green/ecological dimension and goals of future transports were discussed with several stand visitors. For example a large amount of people haven´t heard about the upcoming sulfur regulation on the Baltic Sea/SECA-area which will affect the transport system in the future.  

The TransRussia -exhibition was in general successful and an important contact place for branch operators. The Expocenter in Moscow was full of interesting operators all over the world.
