The opening ceremony of the 20th Caspian International Transport, Transit and Logistics exhibition “Translogistica Caspian” has been held today at Baku Expo Center.

It is gratifying that, traditionally organized in our country, this exhibition is marking its 20th jubilee this year. Held parallel to Baku Energy Week, the event will last until June 2. The exhibition will be complemented by the 1st Azerbaijan International Transport and Logistics Forum. 

This year marks the 100th jubilee of National Leader, founder of the independent Azerbaijani state and prominent politician and statesman Heydar Aliyev. This momentous occasion will reflect in the programs of both the exhibitions.

For centuries, trade routes between Europe and Asia have passed through Azerbaijan, so it is crucial that the country operates large logistic hubs. It has been many years that Translogistica Caspian has been focusing on the main directions of the transportation sector. 

It represents an efficient platform that brings together plenty of fields: aviation, railways, marine transportation, commercial road transport, and logistic services are among those to be discussed in detail. 

The exhibition presents an opportunity to meet managers and experts that represent the state transport bodies of Azerbaijan and other countries of the region, as well as to demonstrate the latest achievements of transportation technology, get abreast of promising state infrastructure projects, establish new collaboration, obtain information on new companies, access potential customers, as well as enjoy many other unique opportunities. Presenting their products and services will be companies from Azerbaijan, Belarus, Finland, Kazakhstan, Romania, Russia, Switzerland, Turkey and United Arab Emirates.

As part of the exhibition, meetings in B2B format, various thematic events and discussions will be organised between local and foreign companies.
