  • joint use of industrial infrastructure (elevators, warehouses), vehicles, special machinery and equipment, which reduces the cost of production and associated costs;
  • introduction of new technologies, modernisation of fixed assets and rational use of available resources;
  • increase in production volumes and profitability.
