(MENAFN- Trend News Agency) BAKU, Azerbaijan, May 22. Turkmenistan is
working to improve and simplify transportation along the
International North-South Transport Corridor, trend reports.
This was stated by the Director of the Agency for Transport and
Communications under the Cabinet of Ministers of Turkmenistan
Mammetkhan Chakiyev at the 14th annual "Russia - the Islamic World:
KazanForum" international economic forum on May 18, 2023.
Speaking at the session dedicated to the North-South corridor,
Chakiyev pointed out the great potential of his country in the
logistics of transit flows, especially taking into account the
Kazakhstan-Turkmenistan-Iran railway, which is the eastern branch
of the North-South direction.
Chakiyev added that today the main flow of cargo transportation
along the North-South corridor in Turkmenistan passes through the
southern border crossing with Iran, Sarakhs (Iran), but there is
also the Akayla (Turkmenistan) - Inche Burun (Iran) crossing in the
west of the country, which can increase the volume of transit.
"The possibility of using another direction is being developed –
through the Artyk station on the Turkmenistan's Ashgabat-Mary line,
where a private cargo terminal for transshipment of goods between
rail and road transport has been built and started functioning. In
the development of multimodal transportation, Turkmenistan is also
working to provide preferential conditions for drivers, including
simplified visa rules and tariffs," the head of the agency
