AES Cargo has opened an office in Baku, Azerbaijan, to increase its involvement as a logistics provider for the former Soviet state’s developing oil industry. “The decision to have a permanent presence in Azerbaijan made sense in light of the increasing requests that we were receiving for importing heavy industrial equipment into the country. The majority of the equipment that we will be dealing with relates to the oil pipeline construction industry and ongoing offshore oil exploration and drilling,” said Jay Cziraky, business development manager, AES Cargo. AES Cargo, which has been a provider of logistics solutions since 1992, has handled import and export shipments in Azerbaijan for over a decade. “Practically speaking much of the groundwork for opening our Baku branch has already been laid out because of our presence here already,” Cziraky added. Besides offering specialised services, such as oversized project cargo and dangerous goods shipping, the Baku office will also be offering all AES Cargo’s standard cargo logistics services, including import and export air freight, customs brokerage and local deliveries and pick up. Its sister company, Move One, will also be present at Baku, offering household goods and relocation services in the country.
