Road transportation of polyethylene terephthalate
The initial task set by the customer was to deliver containers loaded with raw materials from St. Petersburg to Moglino (Pskov region).
Twenty 20-foot containers with polyethylene terephthalate were supposed to arrive in St. Petersburg by sea from Thailand, from where they were sent at the beginning of January 2022. According to the schedule of the sea line, the ship was scheduled to call at the port of St. Petersburg on March 5, 2022. However, current geopolitical events that affected international logistics have made adjustments to the plan. The transnational carrier unilaterally decided not to deliver the cargo to Russia and unloaded the containers in the Estonian port of Tallinn. We connected to a force majeure situation, organized interaction between the consignor in Thailand, the Estonian customs, the sea line and the consignee in order to take the containers to Russia. During the work, it became known about the introduction of an EU ban on crossing the Estonian border by trucks with Russian and Belarusian numbers. Some of the containers that fell under the sanctions were placed on cars registered in Estonia for passing the border and further transportation.
As a result of the work, all containers with raw materials arrived safely at the consignee’s site in Moglino.
