The port of Baku cooperation with a coalition in the Dutch city of Venlo, one of the largest logistics and transport centers in Europe

Barcelona, May 7, 2019.-   As reported by the magazine Port Technology, the Port of Baku has announced it has begun a cooperation agreement with a coalition of leading companies in the Dutch city of Venlo, one of the biggest logistics and transport hubs in Europe.

According to a statement, the agreement will see a closer partnership with the state government of Limburg, The Netherlands, and firms such as Cabooter Group, SMART Logistics Centre, the Limburg Development & Investment Company, Greenport Venlo and KLG Europe.

The city of Venlo, near the German border, is home to many distribution centers which are used by many of the world’s biggest companies, including agribusiness, clothing, electronics and other industries.

Most of the cargo which arrives at Europe’s biggest ports, such as Rotterdam, Antwerp and Amsterdam is delivered to Venlo and distributed throughout the continent.

A brand new Port Technology technical paper looked at Transshipment Traffic and Gateway Volatility 

At the signing ceremony for the agreement, Taleh Ziyadov, general director of the Baku International Sea Trade Port, said: “Our cooperation, the foundation of which is being laid today, will be the result of attracting well-known companies from the Netherlands and Europe to the Port of Baku.

“It is gratifying that the Dutch companies in the logistics chain between Asia and Europe pay special attention to the new Port of Baku and seek to involve various services and production in our country.

Vincent Campfens, Business Consultant, the Port of Rotterdam: Being a smart port is much more than merely introducing awesome new technology into a port to make it safer, more efficient and more sustainable. It is also about looking further ahead in time, making strategic choices to ensure that the port still exists in the future, whilst responding to changes in climate, politics, technology, industries and cargo flows.One of our recent strategic choices is a targeted commitment to digital innovation. This will allow us to take optimal advantage of new technologies presented by digitisation: advanced robotics, artificial intelligence, blockchain transactions and hyper-precise data, to name a few.”
