The representative office of German company Hellmann Worldwide Logistics in Azerbaijan, together with its partners, is launching a block train from China to Europe transiting through Azerbaijan, the representative office told Trend.
The block train will depart from the Chinese city of Suzhou (located 100 kilometers from Shanghai).
According to the representative of the company, the block train will deliver goods not only for transit to Europe, but also for the local market of Azerbaijan.
“The train consists of 41 wagons with 40-foot containers. It will go from Suzhou to the border of Kazakhstan by rail. After arriving in Kazakhstan, Kazakhstan Railways will deliver the containers to the port of Aktau, where they will be loaded onto a ship loader and sent to the port of Baku in Azerbaijan,” the Hellmann spokesperson said.
He also said that Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, being an international logistics company, had previously transported these goods to Europe via Russia.
“However, due to the current geopolitical situation, our route has been changed,” he added.
According to him, this route will be one of the first projects organized by commercial companies.
“We expect this project to work well. It is planned to launch regular flights on this route once or twice a month,” the Hellmann representative added.
