On June 2, 2023, the IX International “HEAVY CASPIAN” conference finished its work in Baku. The conference is devoted to oversized and heavy cargo transportation in the South Caucasus, the Caspian Sea and the countries of Central Asia region.

This year conference was attended by more than 200 delegates from Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Turkey and the OAU.

During the conference delegates discussed the experience of oversized cargo delivering to Georgia, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan, compared transport routes; assessed the capabilities of the ports of Georgia, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan to receive project cargo; talked about the Trans-Caspian Corridor operation for project cargo.

Second day of the forum, June 3, was completely devoted to informal communication of delegates. On this day we took a walking and bus tour of Baku. Delegates were shown the city as it is seen by the indigenous people of Baku: filled with bright and warm sun, Caucasian hospitality and love of life. The program included main attractions sightseeing, walking tour of the Old Town and lunch in an old caravanserai.
