Grain and wheat bran were transported from Russia to Turkey via Baku-Tbilisi-Kars
ADY Express LLC transported grain and wheat bran from Russia to Turkey via the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway.
780 tons of grain in 13 covered wagons were sent from Tatarskaya station of Russia (West-Siberian railway), 480 tons of wheat bran in 8 grain-carrying wagons were sent from Shadrinsk station (South-Ural railway). After passing through Yalama station on the Russian-Azerbaijani border the goods were delivered to Boyuk-Kesik and then to Akhalkalaki station in Georgia. After replacing the wheels in the carriages, the grain and wheat bran were sent to Kars, Turkey.
Grain cargo, covering a distance of 4,745 km and wheat bran – 4,054 km were delivered to the destination. Cargo transportation was carried out by ADY Express LLC with its partners – RJD Logistics (Russia), GR Logistics (Georgia) and Pacific Eurasia Logistics (Turkey).
It should be noted that the BTK railway is more profitable for the transportation of such goods than the traditional sea transportation. It is possible to carry out uninterrupted transportation of small volumes of cargo by BTK, which previously required shipowners to wait for the ship to be loaded at the port of Novorossiysk to ship the cargo to Turkey, and overloading operations were carried out at the port. This also means additional costs. In addition, the transportation of goods by BTK reduces transit time by 2 times. Cargo owners plan to regularly send such cargo to Turkey via Baku-Tbilisi-Kars.
