The award aims to reward the best transport companies and the most outstanding people from the field.  The project has received support from the Presidential Administration of the Russian Federation Government of the Russian Federation, the Russian Union of industrialists and entrepreneurs, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Russia, the largest transportation organizations, guilds, and unions.

The staff at Westmatic is extremely proud and grateful to have received this prestigious award.  This is truly a confirmation of our hard work.
