Leave it to air cargo
and transportation worldwide to bring people together.
When the Seventh Caspian Air Cargo Summit
got underway October 7-11 inside the Boulevard Hotel in Baku Azerbijan,
Silk Way Group President Zaur Akhundov was front and center.
All Cargo All The Time
“Silk Way Group
currently operates two cargo-only airlines, with both operating as a cohesive
unit dedicated to seamless operations for our customers.
“When you add Azerbaijan
Airlines (AZAL), the state-owned passenger airline, into the mix, the
network and capacity become even larger.
Even More Aircraft
“In order to meet
market demands and provide better connectivity to our customers, we have
recently expanded our network and added more capacity with our fifth B747-8F,
which was delivered just this past April.
Baku Cargo Handling Ups The Ante
“Over the last few years we have built a state-of-the-art sorting and handling facilities in BCT, or Baku Cargo Terminal, to handle shipments of pharma, perishables, and e-commerce that require special handlings. The facility includes the 12,000-m2 Baku Logistics Center, the 8,000-m2 International Logistics Center, and a 2,000-m2 Postal Terminal; each is equipped with the latest shipment tracking technologies. As such, Baku, more specifically Silk Way, has become a preferred choice for many customers.”
The Business Climate
“Business for Silk
Way in 2017 has grown significantly in both of our scheduled and charter
An Airline Career So Far
and rewarding at the same time, and there is no room for boredom and complacency
working in the airline industry.
Ahead For Silk Way
“As an airline,
we help facilitate trade growth and trade relations between countries
and regions, and I can say that we as a company are doing all that we
can to support trade developments.
“The type of goods
we are moving hasn’t shifted too much from our traditional main
deck cargo, such as odd-sized cargo, Oil & Gas, etc.
