The origination strategy of Quadra’s Russian based business is to develop local partnerships with producers of grains,

oilseeds and pulses in the Southern Federal District of Russia, focusing on storage, transshipment and shipment from ports of the Volga and Don Rivers. We have built strong alliances with many agricultural producers, including many reliable, small private farms as well as big agricultural holdings. These long-term relationships, together with our well-established operating model, allows us to fully comply with our international customer requests and source specific qualities of grains. In Russia, Quadra covers the whole supply chain from the acquisition of grains, through to warehousing in different regions, documentation and multi modal transportations. We carefully select our storage facilities to provide confidence in the safe custody of goods for any time period. Close cooperation with reliable logistics and forwarding companies allows us to ensure the safety of goods, and to choose the optimal transportation method for each particular parcel, even from remote storage facilities to optimize time and costs.
