“ADY Express” LLC and “Baku International Sea Trade Port” CJSC have begun transportation of new type of transit cargo
Multilateral work aimed at attracting large transit cargo to the routes passing through the territory of Azerbaijan continues to yield results. The new infrastructure opportunities created in our country and the flexible tariff policy increase the competitiveness of international transport routes passing through our territory and make them more attractive.
As a result of joint efforts of the subsidiary of Azerbaijan Railways “ADY Express” LLC and “Baku International Sea Trade Port” CJSC an agreement on transportation at the initial stage 40,000 tons of a new type of transit cargo – Ammonium Nitrate (Saltpeter) was reached with the Georgian side and transportation of that cargo has been started. The company “ADY Express” acting as a freight forwarder, delivered the first shipment of 126 wagons of Saltpeter from Georgian city of Rustavi to the new Baku International Sea Trade Port located in Alyat.
Handling of 8,800 tons of Saltpeter to 2 dry cargo ships was successfully realized in port and then cargo was dispatched to the port of Turkmenbashi. According to the contract, after implementation of initial transportation (40,000 tons) of cargo in August, shipment of additional 80,000 tons of Saltpeter via this route is envisaged by the end of this year.
