Nowadays, various types of transport allow you to solve almost any cargo delivery operations anywhere in the world. To organize such transportation – in accordance with international standards and with minimal losses – companies and holdings engaged in transport logistics are being created.

The tasks of logistics companies include delivery with the least losses, tracking the movement of cargo using modern means of communication and transmitting information about the cargo to the customer.

Bir Kuwwat is the initiator of the organization of a transport corridor from the port of Turkmenbashi to the port of Aktau (Republic of Kazakhstan) and further by rail through the Khorgos border station (PRC) to major port stations of the People’s Republic of China.
