CONFERENCE "Container Transportations: Central Asia and Caspian Region"

   15 September 2017
We invite you to take part in the 1-st international conference "Container Transportations: Central Asia and Caspian Region" in Kazakhstan, Astana, September 15, Kazzhol Astana Hotel.

Kazakhstan is an important transport route for the container cargoes that follow from China to EU. It is also a reliable route in the direction of Afghanistan and Iran. The amount of container trains will be 5000 units per year or about 500 000 TEU by 2020 in the direction of China-EU, according to the predictions of China Railways Nowadays, about 95 000 TEU follows this direction. For comparison, 1 100 TEU were transported by the railways in 2011

The growth of transit transportations in the region contrasts with the decrease of the import of container cargoes. In particular, the supplies have dropped at the Uzbek car assembly plant. Such negative processes are associated with the price drop for the energy resources and subsequent reduction of the external turnover in the countries of the region.

What should we expect from the year 2017? What other problems will arise in these difficult times? Can the containerization of export cargoes minimize the losses from the import decrease? What global tendencies influence the Central Asian market? What are the predictions about the destiny of the container transportations in 2018? Will be the "New Silk Road" a long-term and serious project for the countries of the region?

These and other questions will be the topics for discussion at the conference.

Among the topics of the conference:

  • the development prospects of the Transcaspian transport corridor;

  • the role of Baltic States in logistics for the Central Asia;
