New features of the Merchant Sea Fleet

Starting from 1 March of this year, “Merchant Marine Fleet” CJSC has provided discounts for road transport on the Turkmenbashi-Baku (Alyat)-Turkmenbashi route.

(Ro-Ro means that cars and heavy vehicles enter and leave the ferry at the port of destination). The capacity of vehicle-passenger ferries is 200 passengers and 54 vehicles. So, over the past 2022 year about 22 thousand vehicles were transported.

Taking into account the discount, the cost of transportation in one direction, will be 1,000 US dollars, and in both directions, the cost of transportation will be 1,600 US dollars.
