A meeting of the Coordinating Council of the Republic of Azerbaijan on Transit Freight was held.
An exchange of views took place on the current state of transit traffic through Azerbaijan at the meeting, chaired by Minister of Transport, Communications and High Technologies, Chairman of the Council Rashad Nabiyev.
It was decided to submit proposals on tariffs for transit cargo transportation services by rail and sea transport, as well as services provided at the seaport for transit cargo, and discounts on these tariffs to the Secretariat of the Coordinating Council.
Furthermore, the process of creating an electronic portal with the application of the principle of “single window” was discussed.
It was noted that the electronic portal will reflect uniform tariffs for transit cargo transportation by rail, sea transport, seaports and sea terminals, border crossing procedure, terms and conditions of cargo transportation, including the terms of contract and the procedure for its conclusion and other issues.
It should be noted that the Coordinating Council of the Republic of Azerbaijan on Transit Freight is a collegial executive body established to attract transit cargo to transport corridors passing through the country and provide high-quality transportation.
