KKT Route Gains Momentum
Move One continues to be a leader and specialist in supporting multiple contracts in Afghanistan, making use of the route through Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan
Move One is seeing a significant increase in business along the Kazakhstan-Kyrgyzstan-Tajikistan land route into Afghanistan, also known as the KKT route. The company currently moves more than 70 trucks per month over this series of roads to resupply various military units in Afghanistan, as well as to support a number of large projects to redevelop the country. Move One Logistics Business Development Manager Karl Trottier explains this increase in volume, “Pakistan borders to Afghanistan remain closed and the KKT has proven to be just as efficient if not more so than Pakistan. Volumes are increasing and we suspect they will continue to increase as NATO and the American military no longer rely solely on Pakistan for overland transportation.”
Recent shipments performed by Move One along the KKT include 7,000 tons of Hesco barriers and lumber from Germany, received at Bishkek in Kyrgyzstan and transited via Tajikistan. It also includes 10 to 20 shipments of vehicles, heavy machinery, refrigerators, cranes, and forklifts per month from Manas Airbase in Bishkek to Afghanistan.
In fact, increasing shipments along the KKT have made Kyrgyzstan one of Move One’s busiest transit points for freight destined to Afghanistan. “I am proud to announce that the Kyrgyzstan branch office has ranked as one of the busiest offices for Move One in the Central Asian region,” says Kyrgyzstan Country Manager Sabina Sokolova.
Almaty in Kazakhstan also plays a significant role in Move One’s Afghanistan business, for example transiting numerous truckloads of reprocessed timber to multiple destinations in Afghanistan every week. Aliya Segizbayeva, Move One’s Country Manager for Kazakhstan, insists in the importance of Move One’s work and use of the KKT in the development of Afghanistan. “We are very pleased that we have been able to apply our regional expertise to play a major role in the peacekeeping and restoration projects of Afghanistan,” she says. “Our resources and offices strategically distributed throughout the KKT route mean we are able to expedite these shipments with unparalleled speed and customer value.”
Move One has multiple offices strategically located throughout Central Asia and the Northern Distribution Network (NDN) states, including the KKT. The company offers a range of project freight services in the region, including oil and gas related cargo transportation, local or national armed escort, and domestic fixed and rotary wing charters, as well as HAZMAT handling and delivery. In addition, Move One Logistics specialises in Tax Exemption Protocol Processes and is one of the most accomplished customs clearance brokers operating along the NDN.
