Port of Baku (Baku International Sea Trade Port CJSC)

About the company: The Port of Baku is the oldest and biggest port of the Caspian Sea. For centuries the Port served as a junction between East and West, North and South, connecting dozens of nations, merchants, scientists and travelers. There are many historical references to the Port. In 1564, Sah Tahmasib of Safavids dynasty appointed Seykh Zahid a first Minister of the Port. In 1703, over 20 Indian caravans traveled along the route from Ardebil to Baku, exporting silk, oil, fish, fur, copper, horses, natural colorants, caviar and leather goods.
At present about 85% of cargo is a transit while 15 % flow directly into Azerbaijan. The given percentage ration will change after the launch of Free Trade Zone (FTZ), which is going to be similar to the Jabel Ali free trade zone in UAE. President of the Republic of Azerbaijan H.E. Ilham Aliyev’s decree about measures on creation of the special economic zone like free trade zone in Alat settlement of Garadagh district of Baku, including an area of the new International Baku Sea Trade Port, was signed on March 17, 2016. The zone will transform Alat into the main logistics center, as well as a hub for distribution, manufacturing and other value added services aiming at the markets of China, Turkey, Iran, Russia, India, Pakistan and others.
In 2016, the volume of cargo transportation in the Baku International Sea Trade Port increased by 47%.
