The most profitable and reliable alternative is container shipping by taking into account the time constraints associated with the carriage of goods by road.
At present time, the volume of container shipping from Turkmenbashi to Astrakhan (Russia) and back is 1-2 dry-cargo ships with 6-8 40-ft containers per week (operated by our company) with cargo of various purposes. The time for handling is minimized by having an area for container operations and experienced agents on the territory of the Astrakhan Port. In general, with the presence of our own container fleet consisting of more than 500 different containers and our own trucks on the territory of Turkmenistan, our specialists, as soon as possible, organize the delivery of transport with empty containers to the place of loading at any point in Turkmenistan and further delivery "to the door" of a consignee in Russia and Europe through the Astrakhan Seaport and back to Turkmenistan.
Container shipping allows to reduce the cargo delivery time significantly, to avoid unnecessary customs procedures at the land borders of other countries, and, consequently, to reduce the client's financial costs. The container is a reliable package for such goods as textiles, food, household chemicals and appliances, and much more. Container shipping is becoming more and more in demand day by day, both for small and medium-sized businesses by taking into account the constantly growing cargo turnover between the Russian Federation, European countries, and Turkmenistan, and for a private entrepreneur or a large company as well. In addition, the fact that the Turkmen Ak Yol Company is a certified container operator since 2018 (International code: TWWU) refers that we approach this type of cargo transportation seriously.
