Azerbaijan Railways and Trans Caucasus Terminals LLC, a subsidiary of Georgian Railways, resumed container block train movement on the Poti-Baku route, on the 15th of July. The two parties have previously negotiated and agreed on the technology of containers handling, train schedule and tariffs for transportation of large-tonnage containers.
The block train formed of 30-40 wagons (with 2 containers each) will run twice a week Poti-Baku route, reaching destination within 24 hours. The re-launch of the transportation will also reduce the volume of container cargo transportation on road.
The container train on the Poti-Baku route was first introduced in 1996, however its activity was later suspended
