NUR-SULTAN, Kazakhstan – Kazakhstan has opened a new sea ferry route that connects the Kazakh port of Kuryk with the Iranian Amirabad and the port of Anzali, the Kazakh TV channel Khabar 24 reported on November 26.

The first ship to enter the sea harbor was the Composer Rachmaninov. The advantage of the ferry service is that the cargo can be sent to the consumer directly without additional ships. The occupancy of one ferry is 32-euro trucks with perishable goods.

Previously, the ferry service was only with Azerbaijan, where they exported oil, grain, metal, imported consumer goods, and building materials.

The automotive infrastructure of Kuryk today receives and promptly serves transit and export-import cargo.

“This year we bought 2 tugs. These are the first tugs of our port. We see that there is a certain logic in purchasing our own fleet and operating it from our port. Also, this year, agreements were reached on the construction of two-grain terminals. One in the territory of Kuryk, and the other on the territory adjacent to us, but all these cargoes will be handled through us,” Kuryk Port General Director Serik Akhmetov said.

Port representatives believe that the Kuryk-Amirabad / Anzali ferry line will be interesting for both Iranian and Kazakh businessmen.
