Togliatti is home to 140km of production lines and has the capacity to produce over a million cars a year. Within a 200km radius of the city there are also over 800 tier one and two suppliers.

“We are seeing major increases in demand for high quality supply chain solutions for the automotive industry and this new office at Togliatti represents the next step in our development to serve this key sector,” said Dennis Pastukhov, commercial director of Yusen Logistics Russia.
