When transporting the goods from producers to our warehouses, we usually use rail transport or vessels. Typically on the container ships or bulk vessels. On the sea typically thousands of metric tons are transported. The railways are usually used to transport the goods from Kazakhstan or Russia. Even from there the goods are coming in containers or bulk. Typically the transported volumes are in hundreds of metric tons. Subsequently the trucks are used.
Those big volumes of goods ends its first journey in European warehouses, from where they are then distributed to final customers in smaller lots.
