Aktau, Kazakhstan (PortSEurope) February 10, 2021 – On January 29, 2021, the first trial batch of copper cathodes in containers arrived in Turkey using a new service of the port of Aktau, which allows customers to change the methods of transporting (multimodal) their goods to their final destination. Abay Turikpenbayev, Chairman of the Management Board of NC ATPC JSC, said, “Such multimodal transportation (repackaging from
wagons into containers) is the result of the systematic implementation of our strategy to become a container hub for the countries of Central Asia. Importantly, the market has now also realized that using the port of Aktau as a hub for their cargo is cost effective and price competitive compared to alternative routes. Today’s logistics trends demand transparent, efficient and competitive solutions, and we are proud to be able to offer such solutions. The port of Aktau, as a founding member of the Trans-Caspian International Transport Route (TITR), has become a driving force behind the transformation of logistics not only in the Caspian, but also in the Central Asian region”. In turn, Alibi Kalyshev, the general director of the sending company of this consignment, Alibi Kalyshev, noted that until now the delivery of goods to the buyer in Turkey was carried out through the seaport of Novorossiysk and the new route allows saving on logistics and shortening the delivery time for our customers. In addition, he stressed that the alternative route to Turkey opens up new opportunities for the company in risk management, reducing dependence on Russian operators of wagons and infrastructure of Russian railways, and is also the second strategic route for the delivery of goods to foreign partners to ensure uninterrupted export supplies. ktau Sea Port (Kazakhstan) is located on the east coast of the Caspian Sea at the intersection of several international transport corridors, thereby providing the transportation of dry cargo, crude oil and oil products from east to west, from north to south and back in the direction of Iran, Turkey, Russia, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan.
