Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan are enhancing cooperation in transport and logistics. Due to that the amount of cargo traffic has increased, the export potential has increased and the product supply geography has expanded. The Baku grain terminal will also be part of the international transport projects of the two countries. Through it Kazakhstan’s grain has been shipped by the Caspian Sea for already 12 years.

ERZHAN BAIMUKHAMETOV, STAFF, BAKU GRAIN TERMINAL, AZERBAIJAN:

- The terminal has modern equipment that allows to temporarily store up to 15 thousand of grains. Cargo transshipment capacity comprises a thousand and a half tons of grain per day, which amounts to about 300 thousand tons of grain per year. We produce 150 tons of flour per day, accordingly, it makes up over 50 thousand tons of flour per year.

This year, the terminal management plans to make use of the North-South route, the “Baku-Tbilisi-Kars” railway link and deliver Kazakhstan’s grain to the markets of Turkey and the Middle East.

ERZHAN BAIMUKHAMETOV, STAFF, BAKU GRAIN TERMINAL, AZERBAIJAN:

- As for the export of the grains through our terminal, we work with the “Food Corporation”. It exports grains to Azerbaijan. We process half of the grain into flour. We also cooperate with Azerbaijani and Russian traders who are interested in transshipping grain through our terminal towards Iran.

In general, Azerbaijan’s demand for grain comprises about 3,5 millions of tons per year. At the meeting of the intergovernmental commission at the end of last year, the parties have agreed to increase the export of Kazakhstan’s agricultural products to the country by up to 1 million tons per year.
