International cargo transport

A Pakistani transport and logistics company, TCS, has now completed a pilot delivery of goods from Karachi (Pakistan) to Baku (Azerbaijan) through the Caspian seaport of Aktau in Kazakhstan.

The shipment was organized with the assistance of the Embassy of Kazakhstan in Islamabad, in an effort to expand Kazakhstan’s transit transport potential.

Kazakhstan’s Foreign Ministry announced that the transportation of Pakistani pharmaceutical products under TIR, along the 4,820 km long route through Afghanistan and Uzbekistan to Aktau and then by sea to Baku, took 21 days.

According to Pakistani logistics experts, the Trans-Afghan corridor in tandem with the Karakoram Highway, can provide significant impetus to expanding the transit and transport potential of Kazakhstan and Pakistan, with reference to the Trans-Caspian International Transport Route.
