M&M Militzer & Münch Turkmenistan is involved in a major national transport project between the State Committee for Water Management of Turkmenistan and the Japanese trading company Itochu Corporation.
Between October 2022 and December 2023, the Militzer & Münch team participated in the transportation of a total of 200 earth-moving machines from Japan to Turkmenistan by sea and land. The 167 excavators and 23 Komatsu bulldozers were first shipped from Japan to the Turkish ports of Izmir and Derince on ro-ro ships. From there, they were transported by truck through Georgia and Azerbaijan to Turkmenistan. Spare parts and oils for the Komatsu machines were shipped by container from Japan to Turkmenistan via the port of Poti in Georgia.
The vehicles are intended for projects of the State Committee for Water Management of Turkmenistan. This involves the water supply of agricultural areas, the creation of additional water reserves, the construction of new barrier lakes and the expansion of the capacity of existing reservoirs.
In this major project, Militzer & Münch not only handled the transport, but also the inspection of the cargo, unloading, arrangement of import customs clearance and additional services on site as requested by the customer.
“We already have experience with transport projects for government agencies in the region. The renewed participation in a government project proves the reliability and excellent service of M&M Turkmenistan.”, says Nikolaus Kohler, Regional Managing Director Middle East / Central Asia. “I am more than convinced that with our experienced team we will be able to win over more customers and partners to place their trust in Militzer & Münch in Turkmenistan.”
