The significant territorial remoteness of ALROSA’s units from major transportation routes led to a need to develop a fundamental navigation and delivery system.

Every year in Russia and abroad, ALROSA buys various materials, machinery and equipment. The challenge to deliver these resources is successfully met by the transport and supply complex, consisting of specialized vehicle fleet, airline company with its own fleet of passenger and cargo aircraft and helicopters, river ports in Lensk with warehousing and shipment terminals.

Planning the logistics, the division’s specialists must calculate the speed of the cargo transportation by railway to Ust-Kut, the time needed for river transportation along the Lena, and for winter trucking or airlift. Small shipments are delivered by aircraft, but the bulk of cargo is delivered via river transport during the navigational season through Lensk.

The division has departments in Mirny, Ust-Kut, Irkutsk, Vladivostok, Lensk, Udachny, Aikhal and Nakyn. Just one Mirny department has 12,000 square meters of warehousing space and is equipped with various loading mechanisms.

Around RUB 20 billion are annually allocated to finance purchases of equipment, materials and supplies. From 400 to 600 thousand tons of cargo are transported to the company’s divisions.
