Description

This new port just south of Azerbaijan’s capital is an extension of the Baku port and claims to link Turkey, the European Union, Iran, India, and Russia with three international rail lines. The first phase of the port’s construction was completed in 2017, but the timeline for phases two and three are contingent on initial cargo volumes.
