The country is quickly becoming a strong logistics hub with its Khorgos – Eastern Gate dry port, two railway crossings on the border with China, Western Europe – Western China highway and Aktau and Kuryk seaports.
The infrastructures ensure efficient distribution of the entire logistics.
According to Kazakh Deputy Minister for Industry and Infrastructure Development, Berik Kamaliyev the throughput capacity of the Aktau Sea Port and the Kuryk multimodal complex are increased to 27 million tons. This year, transshipment will be increased to 7.5 million tons.

Road developments are also being continued in the republic. As part of the Nurly Zhol program, a total of 2,500 kilometers of highway have been constructed and reconstructed while nearly 6,000 kilometers of highway have been repaired.
