I International Conference

«Grain Cargo Logistics 2015»

We kindly invite you to the Conference “Grain Cargo Logistics” to be held on June 08, 2015 (resort village Abrau-Durso, Novorossiysk).

According to the RF Ministry of Agriculture, in the current agrarian season (2014/2015) Russia has exported 25.1 million tons of grain (+29 percent to the season of 2013/2014). An earlier outlook predicted 27-32 million tons of the Russian grain to be exported in the season of 2014/2015. Further export growth will increase the existing significant pressure on the Russian transport infrastructure.

Are domestic elevators, ports, terminals and roads ready for this scenario? How is it going with export facilities in the neighboring countries? This and other issues will be addressed at the Conference “Grain Cargo Logistics”.

Among other Conference topics:

  • What is interfering with the Russian grain export?
  • Grain duties: legal consequences and outlook for export
  • Development trends of grain river shipment
  • Bottlenecks of grain export logistics from CIS countries
  • Specifics of handling grains in port harbors
  • Port infrastructure of Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan
  • Dynamics of grain railway transportation
The Conference will give you the opportunity to network with experts and nurture new business relationships. Draft Agenda will be provided upon request.

For further information feel free to contact Sergey Evmenenko, Organization Committee Member, at


The conferences will take place in the suburb of Novorossiysk, Russia’s largest port, in the congress center “Abrau-Durso” located in the like-named village at:

19, Promyshlennaya St., Abrau-Durso village, Novorossiysk, Krasnodar Krai, 353995

The village of Abrau-Durso, former imperial estate, is situated 14 kilometers to the west from Novorossiysk, on the shores of Lake Abrau. This high-mountain place is often called Russian Switzerland, because it is so beautiful. Famous champagne factory “Abrau-Durso” is right next to the lake – this is the largest and oldest Russian manufacturer producing sparkling wines in accordance with the classic champagnization technology.

We recommend staying in the hotel complex “Imperial” in Abrau-Durso. This is the first so-called wine hotel in Russia. All the rooms remind of the French Provence. The hotel offers a total of 40 rooms. We also recommend the country estate “Krugloe Ozero”. It can be found in the south of Abrau-Durso, 5 kilometers away from the village center, in a picturesque valley lined with leaf forest, not far from the uncrowded Black Sea beaches.
