Prime Minister of Kazakhstan Olzhas Bektenov held a meeting with the Chairman of the Board of Rhenus Group Tobias Bartz on cooperation in the transport and logistics sector, El.kz cites primeminister.kz.

Current projects were reviewed and discussed prospects for the creation of new Kazakhstan-German enterprises with a view to increasing the transit capacity of Kazakhstan through the modernisation of the warehousing infrastructure and the development of rail transport. 

Rhenus Group is among the TOP-25 largest logistics companies in the world and has a network of 70 terminals in Europe, as well as 22 container type. 

Tobias Bartz noted the increasing role of Kazakhstan in global logistics and expressed interest in the creation of new territories with the involvement of Kazakh companies to increase terminal capacity. This will connect the supply chain of Europe with Central Asia.

Olzhas Bektenov stressed the readiness to work openly with investors to fully disclose the transport and logistics and transit potential. Major transcontinental transport corridors - the shortest routes from Europe to China and South-East Asia - pass through Kazakhstan. Kazakhstan is actively working with Azerbaijan and Georgia to reduce the transit time of goods along the Trans-Caspian International Transport Route. Over the year, the total time of passage along the Middle Corridor has almost halved.

"The Government of Kazakhstan intends to maximise the transport and logistics potential of the country. We are open to co-operation in the implementation of joint investment projects. For our part, we guarantee a stable and predictable investment climate with the creation of favourable conditions for business,"Olzhas Bektenov said.
