Zangazur corridor may handle over half of cargo transported between Türkiye, Middle East

    ECONOMICS  08 June 2022 - 15:19

    Erman Ereke, head of the International Road Transport Union (IRU) Permanent Mission in Türkiye and the Middle East, has said that the Zangazur corridor can attract more than half of the cargo between Türkiye and Central Asian countries.

    According to him, the opening of the Zangazur corridor will benefit all regional countries, Trend reports, citing a source in the Association of International Road Carriers of Azerbaijan.

    "With the launch of this corridor, the volume of cargo transportation from the southern ports of Iraq, Syria and the Mediterranean through Türkiye will increase. Currently, Turkiye and Central Asian countries have an average annual turnover of 110,000-120,000 trucks. With the opening of the Zangazur corridor and the simplification of a number of procedures in Azerbaijan, I believe that more than half of these cargoes will be able to pass through here," Ereke said.

    Meanwhile, Mehmet Uylukcu, president of the Union of Road Carriers of the Organisation of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC), said that Azerbaijan has become a strategic country within the framework of the creation of new transport routes.

    He noted that IRU and BSEC are ready to provide Azerbaijan with all necessary support.

    "Today, one of the main goals is the further introduction of electronic services in Azerbaijan. We intend to expand our strategic cooperation with the Association of International Road Carriers of Azerbaijan on the organisation of safe cargo transportation," Uylukcu said.
