Azerbaijan: first transports
In March 2017, Militzer & Münch opened a representation in Azerbaijan. Business is doing well: different industries are already relying on Militzer & Münch‘s Middle East expertise to import their products to the landlocked country in the Orient. The two employees in Azerbaijan already handled a big project successfully as well: they organized the transport of tiles in 41 containers from Foshan, China, to Baku. The boxes went via sea from Foshan to Poti, Georgia. From there, the freight was hauled via road to the destination in Baku. Total transit time was 40 days. The two Militzer & Münch representative’s confidence about the future is owed to big infrastructure projects in Azerbaijan: the international Baku-Tbilisi-Kars (BTK) railway project, the new port of Baku, and the new railway connection between Baku and the Iranian border.
