Turkmenistan Discusses Transit Logistics With Company From China’s Shandong


Ashgabat recently hosted a working meeting between representatives of the Turkmen Logistics Association and the Chinese logistics company Shandong Hi-Speed Qilu Eurasia Railway Logistics Co., a key operator in China’s Shandong province.

The two sides discussed prospects for cooperation in logistics, noting Turkmenistan’s growing potential as an important transit hub. The country’s convenient geographical location, and its active investment in the development of transport infrastructure — including the automation of customs procedures and the use of modern equipment — are reasons for a recent increase in the volume of cargo transportation through Turkmenistan.

The Chinese delegation led by Liu Junfeng, head of the company’s representative office in Uzbekistan and head of the branch in Kazakhstan, emphasized interest in strengthening cooperation with Turkmenistan. Shandong Hi-Speed Qilu Eurasia Railway Logistics Co. specializes in rail and road freight transportation and has representative offices in many countries.
