ADY Express, a subsidiary of Azerbaijan Railways, has started cooperation with the Mechel Group, one of the largest industrial companies in Russia, the company reported on its official LinkedIn page.
Within the framework of cooperation, ADY Express will carry out railway transportation of the company’s products to Georgia.
As part of the agreement, the first batch in the amount of 136 tons has already been shipped. Steel cables covered a distance of 3,241km from the Beloretsk station in Russia to the Tbilisi freight station in Georgia.
