The operation was successfully carried out by the security service of the GruzovichkoF Company and Moscow Chief Administration of Internal Affairs, which made it possible to find the lost vehicle.
The GAZel was found in less than 70 kilometers from Moscow in the town of Chernogolovka.

Building material and tool hypermarket Leroy Merlin was opened in Ryazan on Tuesday, the tenth of September. A representative office of St. Petersburg company GruzovichkoF, performing the functions of delivery service for the French hypermarket, started operating at the same time with it. The GruzovichkoF Company has already been operating on the cargo carriage market of St. Petersburg and Moscow, and now it is operating in Ryazan as well.
Acting minister of economic development and trade of Ryazan Region Vitaliy Larin, first deputy chairman of the government of the Ryazan Region Oleg Bulekov as well as general director of Leroy Merlin in Russia Vincent Genty took part in the opening ceremony in the twenty-seventh Leroy Merlin hypermarket in Russia.
The area of the new hypermarket is 15.9 thousand square meters. More than 40,000 names of goods for building and decoration are presented there. “We expect great demand for this hypermarket’ products. It is necessary to take all those goods to the customers. More than half a million people live in Ryazan, because of that I am sure that our vehicles will be 100% loaded, and residents of the city will be able to get their goods on time,” said Igor Rudziy, general director of the GruzovichkoF Company when asked to comment on the event. “We have been working with Leroy Merlin in St. Petersburg on outsourcing principle for a long time already, and will continue our cooperation in Ryazan.”
The GruzovichkoF Company is actively developing transport outsourcing services. Bringing this function to life with the help of GruzovichkoF allows the companies that require regular cargoes, to reduce non-core expenses for many kinds of activities. First of all to reduce expenses for daily accounting: instead of vehicle trip tickets, fuel and POL (petroleum, oil and lubricants) consumption, depreciation of vehicles and other things, the company only takes expenses for an extrinsic contract into account. The number of personnel is reduced or existing personnel are reoriented to other tasks, and expenses connected with that are also reduced. Then transport tax and property tax are reduced, and the finances freed in such a way are directed to development of the company’s own business.
