The world’s largest inland sea, the Caspian Sea, is a major geographic and political center. Five sovereign nations – Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Russia and Iran – have access to the Sea which is rich in oil, natural gas and other natural resources. As such, it is a vital transport logistics hub, linking Central Asia to the Far East and Eurasia as whole. Most regular container shipping lines are absent from the Caspian region, Caspian region is mostly a one- way destination for containerized cargo, and most of the time shippers/importers are bound to pay for container cost (SOCs) along with cost of goods.
The idea of Caspian Container Company SA (CCCSA) is to facilitate international container lines, Freight Forwarders, shippers and importers by providing container handling, storage and transport service to/from Caspian region. Also, CCCSA has leverage on millions of tons of commodities trade and can establish backhaul flow through COCs thanks to its activity in the Greater Caspian region.
