Ahlers takes the next step in expanding its presence in Russia
Ahlers continues to grow on the market of supply chain solutions with a 3 million euro investment into a new office for our regional headquarters in Saint Petersburg.
Ahlers marks 110 years of history by expanding its international presence and growing its business in Russia and CIS countries.

During the last years Ahlers Russia multiplied its business and turnover by continuous organic growth by opening new warehouses in Chelyabinsk and Novosibirsk, the customs warehouse in Saint Petersburg and the introduction of new services such as reverse logistics, support of trading activities, secured transportation of high value goods and data analytics solutions.
