ADY Container, a subsidiary of Azerbaijan Railways CJSC, jointly with the Swiss company Hupac Intermodal successfully completed the test transportation of containers from Europe to Iran through international South-West transport route, a source in the company said.

The source told Trend News Agency that the container train was sent from the Polish city of Slawkow to Iran through Azerbaijan via the South-West corridor for testing purposes.

"The train successfully reached Astara station (Iran) and has already left for the opposite direction. The operator of the project is ADY Container, which has implemented this trip together with Hupac Intermodal," said the source.

The container train has passed 399 kilometers across the territory of Poland, 965 kilometers across the territory of Ukraine, 1,040 kilometers across the Black Sea, 396 kilometers across the territory of Georgia and 596 kilometers across the territory of Azerbaijan and Iran.

"In total, the train traversed 3,396 kilometers in nine days. The containers are equipped with GPS system which allows tracking their location. ADY Container implemented the test transportation in order to check technologies on the South-West route and measuring the time of movement of the train," said the source.
