15 years Arvato in Russia… Anniversary in Yaroslavl
arvato’s distribution center DZB celebrated its 15th anniversary with numerous customers and business partners last week. Arvato-CEO Rolf Buch traveled to Yaroslavl for this occasion as well in order to congratulate his Russian colleagues. 45 of them are also part of Arvato Russia since the beginning and celebrated their 15th anniversary as well. But the anniversary wasn’t the only reason to celebrate: the foundation stone for the construction of new buildings was also laid on the day.
Lately, the company team has felt a new surge of optimism in the e-commerce business. Small start-ups are entering the market and are relying on DZB for their logistics and services. The DZB in Yaroslavl today has become a state-of-the-art service center for industrial and commercial companies and now covers an area of more than 45,000 square meters. More than 1,100 employees send as many as 60,000 shipments for Arvato per day. In 2011, approximately ten million packages were shipped to customers throughout Russia – and the trend is strongly upward.
