Freight Village Vorsino is a multimodal transport and logistics center. It is a pilot project providing for creation of logistics infrastructure under European freight village concept. The concept was developed in 2012 in cooperation with German Freight Village Association (DGG – Deutschen GVZ-Gesellschaft, Bremen, Germany). Freight Village Vorsino is a public private partnership of a private investor, Freight Village Kaluga OAO and government institutions, namely Kaluga Region Government, Kaluga Region Development Corporation OAO, and the Administration of Borovsk District, Kaluga Region.
Currently the project:
- is included in the masterplan for development of Moscow railway hub;
- is included in the list of key terminals distributing cargo flows from Moscow;
- is recognized as a key terminal engaged in redistribution of cargo flows from Moscow/Moscow Region.
Key project parameters:
- 570 ha intended for transport and terminals’ infrastructure, warehousing and industrial facilities;
- project implementation period – 10 years.
The logistics park includes the following facilities: a railway cargo park, truck and container terminals, a warehousing facility, motor roads. The current container terminal capacity is 350,000 TEUs per annum. It is to be increased to 500,000 TEUs per annum in the future. The total length of internal tracks exceeds 10,000 m. A customs post was opened in the freight village territory in 2013.
TransContainer PAO is a strategic development partner of Freight Village Vorsino. The main idea behind this partnership is to create a major distribution center beyond the border of Moscow to divide the container flow directed to Moscow via railways into two separate flows, one flow for consumers within Moscow and another flow for consumers outside Moscow.
In September 2015 Pyaterochka retail chain distribution center (area: 38,700 sq.m) was opened at a modern warehousing facility. In June 2017 an agreement for provision of terminal logistics services was concluded with Karl Schmidt Spedition GmbH international forwarder, engaged in delivering SIBUR polymer products. A new distribution center was established near the container site to make Vorsino a full-scale logistics hub. KSS acquired an A class cross docking warehouse with an area of 35,600 sq.m.
A number of leading international companies, including Total, Steel Paint, Flint Group, OMIA Urals has their production facilities in the industrial zone.
Industrial land plots with relevant infrastructure located in Freight Village Vorsino are available to build production facilities of various industries.
