The flow of goods is expected to increase in Azerbaijan’s Baku International Sea Trade Port after the Zangazur corridor is commissioned, Director General of the Baku International Sea Trade Port Taleh Ziyadov told reporters on Dec. 7, Trend reports.
Ziyadov added that the Zangazur corridor was considered the main corridor and logistics hub for the transshipment of goods in our region in the Soviet period.
