BAKU, Azerbaijan, Mar. 16
A structural subdivision of Azerbaijan Railways CJSC, ADY Express LLC, plans to transport fuel oil from Kazakhstan to the Georgian port of Batumi in March 2022, the company told Trend.
"The fuel oil will be loaded into tank cars at the Tekesu station in Kazakhstan and then delivered to the port of Alat, from where it will be transported by rail to the port of Batumi. Part of the cargo will be transshipped along the route Kazakhstan-Russia-Azerbaijan-Georgia," said ADY Express.
ADY Express noted that the sanctions imposed on Russia by Western countries affected the transport and logistics system as well.
"Cargo owners have changed the direction of cargo flows, refusing to transit cargo through Russia. The East-West transport corridor passing through the territory of Azerbaijan is chosen as one of the alternative routes. Cargo owners in Kazakhstan have already started using the corridor for transportation to the West," the company added.
