As Sergei Batekhin says:
Interros, which has set up this management company, is a professional investor with 20-years of experience in investment generation, which will allow Interros to grow projects to the level of a big business structure. We see a lot of growth potential in this project. At the moment, the air-freight market is taking shape and the routes for business development are yet to be seen. We might expand the companys presence geographically or offer additional services at the existing transportation and logistics hubs.
