During the reported period, cargo turnover by road transport grew by 6.4 percent compared with January-April last year, while passenger traffic rose by 8.4 percent.

One of the reasons for the growth of road transport is improvement after the reconstruction of the road.

The number of loaded carriages made up 683 in average and unloaded - 444.

The cargo shipping via sea rose by 9.9% to 3.6 million tons in January-April 2010. The transportation of the Kazakh oil played its role in the increase in the cargo transportation. According to the data provided by the Caspian State Shipping Company, about 450-500,000 tons of oil are transported from Kazakhstan to Azerbaijan per year. About 250,000 tons of oil were transported by Chevron Company.   

About 67.0 percent of cargo shipping fell on oil and oil products, while 33.0 on dry cargo. All cargo deliveries were implemented under the international operations. The volume of cargo processed in Azerbaijani ports was 3.1 million tons in January-April 2010.

Transportation via gas pipelines made up 6.4bln cubic meters or 3.5% more than 2009. The major reason for the growth is the export of the Azerbaijani gas to the foreign markets. 27.8% of the transported gas fell on South Caucasus Pipeline. About 1.8 billion cubic meters of gas was transported via this pipeline.  

In January-April 2010, the passenger transportation via airways totaled 257,500 people compared to 354,000 in the same period of the last year. The share of public sector in air transportation was 77.4 percent, and private sector - 22.6 percent.
