First Cargo Transported from Pakistan to Azerbaijan via Kazakhstan

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.  

Kazakhstan Increases Cargo Transshipment through Caspian Seaports along TITR

As announced by the Kazakh Transport Ministry, the volume of cargo shipped through Kazakhstan’s seaports of Aktau and Kuryk along the Trans-Caspian International Transport Route (TITR) increased by 15% during the first quarter of this year. Cargo transshipment by trucks through the port of Kuryk rose by 34% and by rail containers through the port of Aktau by 27%. The transit of rail containers from China to EU countries through Kazakhstan grew 3.4-fold. To further increase the potential of the Trans-Caspian International Transport Route, the Ministry of Transport will begin dredging the port of Kuryk from mid-summer to provide sufficient depth for ships to enter the harbor.    

Digitalization Eases Cargo Processing on the Trans-Caspian International Transport Route

On 30 April , Singaporean company Global DTC gave a presentation of multimodal platforms Digital Trade Corridor and Tez Customs at Kazakhstan’s Ministry of Transport. The demonstration reiterated benefits afforded by digitalization in ensuring transparency and high-speed transit of goods through Kazakhstan along the Trans-Caspian International Transport Route (TITR) connecting China and Europe through Central Asia and the Caucasus. The DTC platform, and particularly its Track & Trace service, allows shippers to track the location of cargo and its customs status online, as well as update information on transport documents along the entire route. Work on the technical integration for Track & Trace in Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan has now been completed, and its integration in Georgia is ongoing. Negotiations are also underway with Chinese and European partners. The introduction of the Tez Customs platform, by offering automated, paperless customs transit clearance, registration and electronic transit declaration, has reduced processing to just 30 minutes. During the first quarter of this year, cargo traffic along the TITR increased by 33% compared to the same period last year.
