Delamode has commenced running new groupage lines serving Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Iran.
The new services will be consolidated in Delamode’s facility in Sofia, Bulgaria, which will also provide customs clearance formalities. Shipments will arrive from throughout Delamode’s European network into Sofia and be transhipped, through to Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan & Iran. Departures from Bulgaria will occur weekly.
“These countries have been attracting significant foreign investment,” said Stephen Blyth, Chairman of Delamode. “This has come through the respective governments adopting business friendly policies and in Iran’s case opening up to foreign trade for the first time in many years. Today’s announcement, in part is a response to existing customer demand from across Europe and it is also about us taking a view that trade levels are set to continue to increase across this region.”
Commenting further he added, “We are very pleased to open these routes, servicing the demand for the import and export into these countries, particularly for industrial commodities such as mineral and chemical products among other goods.”
