Results of TransCaspian 2012

The 11th International Transport, Transit and Logistics Exhibition, TransCaspian 2012, closes today. As a unique specialist event, it has attracted a large number of professional visitors to the pavilions of Baku Expo Centre. And this is no accident! The exhibition has once again demonstrated that it reflects the development of the transport infrastructure and freight traffic market of the country and the region as a whole.

Since its foundation, the exhibition has been supported by the Ministry of Transport of Azerbaijan Republic, and worked closely with TRACECA. The traditional participation of the Minister for Transport of Azerbaijan Republic, Mr Ziya Mamedov, in opening TransCaspian also testifies to the importance of this event. In his speech, in which he thanked the organizers Iteca Caspian LLC and its partner ITE Group plc, the Minister noted the relevance of the exhibition in light of the implementation of major government programmes that reflect the positivity of the countrys development, The International Transport, Transit and Logistics Exhibition, TransCaspian 2012, held in Baku, is a demonstration of the increased interest in Azerbaijans transport sector. The integration of Azerbaijan into the world economy is bearing fruit. By becoming an annual event, this exhibition is a further proof of such development in Baku."

This year's International Transport, Transit and Logistics Exhibition, TransCaspian 2012, shows growth of 25 per cent on last years show. The geographical composition of the exhibitors has widened as well. This year Azerbaijan, Georgia, Germany, Italy, Latvia, the UAE, Poland, Russia, Turkey, Ukraine, France and the Czech Republic are among the countries represented. Croatian companies made their debut at the exhibition this year and the Latvian national stand was involved in the exhibition for the second year in a row.

Many participants have noted that they have been exhibiting at TransCaspian for more than one year, thus demonstrating a professional interest in strengthening their position in the growing market of Azerbaijan. The three-day exhibition offered the chance for negotiations, during which some companies were selling products and services, while others were studying the possibility of their use in their own organizations and companies.

Many of the proposals concerned railway transport. For example, an Italian designer and manufacturer of machinery and equipment for the installation and repair of rail beds and rail communications, La Falco, has implemented a project to modernize the electrified railway lines; the Russian company, Transmashholding, which has been co-operating with Azerbaijan for the past few years, introduced a new series of subway cars that meet all modern international standards; Promelectronika, in partnership with ALSTOM (France), offered a range of solutions for the modernization of the infrastructure of Azerbaijan Railways (ARW); and the German company, Siemens, in combination with the Azerbaijani company ATEF, proposed the electrification of a section of the Baku-Tbilisi railway line. The Ukrainian State Transport-Logistics Centre, an organization engaged in cargo transportation, held several meetings with ARW regarding a possible increase in the volume of cargo transported between Ukraine and Azerbaijan.

The stand of the Trade Port of Baku, which will be completed in 2015, was also present at TransCaspian 2012. The new port in Alyat will be able to receive 20-30 million tons of cargo per year and will be key to the process of cargo transfer between Asia and Europe.
The international ports in the Black and Baltic Seas (the Port of Poti, Batumi Port, the Port of Liepaja and the Free Port of Ventspils) also showcased their ability to transport goods.

The debutants at Trans Caspian 2012, who accounted for 40% of this year's exposition, made the most of the exhibition, presenting products and services that attracted the attention of industry professionals. The following were among the debutants: the German logistics service BTG Internationale Spedition GMBH; the Russian rail car producers RusAgroTrans, and SDS-Mash.

Large organizations and companies that manufacture and repair rail cars and ships, as well as rail, sea and river transporters were present on the national stands of Latvia and Croatia.
Alongside commercial companies, the exhibition was attended by several state transport agencies, including Azerbaijan Railways CJSC, the Azerbaijan State Caspian Sea Shipping Company and the State Road Transport Service of Azerbaijan Republic.

Overall we can say with confidence that TransCaspian 2012 was an excellent international platform for the exchange of experience among managers and professionals working in ports, airports, rail stations, road and rail transport businesses, major transportation companies and manufacturers of equipment for the transport industry, and has made a positive contribution to the expansion of international co-operation in the transportation industry.
