In Russia, there is no longer enough equipment for warehouses
Vedomosti: Russian logistics companies do not have enough forklifts for warehouses
The exit of European and Japanese manufacturers from the Russian market associated with the outbreak of hostilities in Ukraine created a problem with equipment for warehouses. Logistics companies reported that they no longer had enough forklifts and that new supplies could not be made in sufficient quantities. write down “Vedomosti”.
A report with relevant statistics was earlier released by PEK. Sources and authorized representatives from logistics and transport companies, as well as warehouse equipment distributors, confirmed the problem.
John Deere, Caterpillar, Continental, Tadano, Kamatsu, Hitachi, Metso, Juhndrich had stopped supplying and servicing the equipment. The cost of spare parts for them has increased by 30-200 percent depending on the category and the delivery time has doubled, the PEK report said. The worst case scenario is the electronic components.
Due to these issues, logistics costs have increased by 16 percent in the eight months since the beginning of the year. To solve the problem, companies have to switch to alternative suppliers in Turkey and China.
Andrey Maksimov, Sales Director of Actio Rus Forklift, said that Chinese warehouse trucks are one and a half times cheaper than Western trucks, they are easier to maintain and cheaper. At the same time, Elvira Kayumova, commercial director of Eurocar-Plus, JAC’s official distributor in Russia, noted that it is not easy to buy equipment in China – coronavirus restrictions, congestion in ports and railway interference.
In addition, the production time of loaders in China has increased by one and a half to two times, so dealers do not have time to supply the necessary amount of equipment to Russia. PEK also noted that in terms of technical specifications, Chinese cars are often inferior to their Western counterparts.
NRA managing director Sergey Grishunin noted that the problem is partially alleviated by the departure of international brands from Russia, which is why demand for warehouses has decreased. However, in the next three to four years, logistics companies will need loaders, towers, elevators, stackers, hoists and pallet trucks. According to experts, the use of Chinese technology can reduce the capacity of warehouses by 10 percent due to other factors.
It was previously reported that stocks of foreign cars in Russia are left for about two to four months, depending on the brand. The problem is especially acute with sedans from European and Japanese manufacturers.
