The first container train within the TURKUAZ project has arrived in Baku, ADY Container told APA-Economics.

The TURKUAZ express block train, consisting of 21 containers, each 45 feet long, loaded with 588 tons of cargo has arrived from Turkey.

A new logistics product developed by ADY Container, a subsidiary of Azerbaijan Railways CJSC, together with its partners from Turkey and Georgia – the TURKUAZ express container train will run twice a week from Istanbul (the Anatolian side) and Mersin to Baku and vice-versa.


The journey time of the non-stop block train makes up 6 days and its consistent import-export operation is expected to greatly increase the volume of cargo on the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars (BTK) railway line while strengthening its competitiveness.
