In 2022, the total volume of railway transportation between Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan increased by 4 times compared to 2021 and amounted to more than 3 million tons. There is an increase in the transportation of grain, mining and metallurgical products. The highest growth – nearly 700 per cent increase showed export from Kazakhstan, including transit through Azerbaijan, which amounted to 2.7 million tons.

For the first quarter of 2023, transportation between the two countries also shows positive dynamics, having increased by more than 40% compared to the same period last year.

In order to synchronize operations between Trans-Caspian International Transport Route (TITR) participants, together with the Azerbaijani side, a virtual dispatch center was created for planning and coordinating traffic, which improves the intercountry exchange of information on the movement of goods.
