The spare parts and accessories warehouse in Chekhov, near Moscow, was officially opened in March 2016 and is already operating at full capacity, serving as Volkswagen Group Rus’ main distribution node for spare part deliveries in Russia. The warehouse can store more than 140,000 units of goods. The shipment volume reached four million items in the first year of warehouse operation.

The warehouse is located in the PNK Chekhov-2 logistics park, 50 km away from Moscow along the Simferopolskoye Highway. About 70 million euro was invested in building the facilities. The total area of the class A+ logistics complex is over 52,000 square meters.

General Director of Volkswagen Group Rus Marcus Osegowitsch comments, «Construction of our own spare parts and accessories warehouse is a strategic project for us. The main reason for major investments in our own warehouse was the wish to offer fast and high-quality services for customers of all of our brands and reduce waiting time for the required spare parts as much as possible».

Za Rulem readers and website visitors from all over Russia took part in the voting for the annual Grand Prix awards to select the best cars in eleven main categories. Awards in six additional nominations are also given by the magazine’s editorial board.
