On August 16, 2018, the AsstrA branch in Kazakhstan became a member of the Kazakhstan Association of National Freight Forwarders (ANEK).
ANEK was founded in 1997 and today represents more than 80 national freight forwarding companies. ANEK is the only Kazakh member of the International Federation of Freight Forwarding Associations (FIATA), which unites 150 countries’ national freight forwarding associations and represents their interests in the global freight forwarding market.
ANEK is an accredited expert council member organization of the Kazakhstan Ministry of Investment and Development and a member of NC Kazakhstan Temir Zholy (Kazakhstan Railways) working groups. This allows ANEK members to participate directly in the formation of transport legislation, resolve issues on the elimination of administrative barriers, and develop the freight forwarding business in Kazakhstan.
"Joining ANEK is an important stage in the development of AsstrA in Kazakhstan and beyond. ANEK coordinates and makes recommendations on a number of laws and legislative acts, such as the law on transport, the law on railway transport, the tax code, the civil code, and other fundamental regulations affecting the transport industry. As an Association member, we will be able to participate in the discussion and lobby for the interests of logistics operators and customers.”
ANEK is a kind of bridge between all international freight forwarding associations. As a member, we can keep abreast of all developments in the world of logistics. In other words, it helps us offer our clients the most relevant and professional solutions," says Margarita Dyadyaeva, Branch Manager of AsstrA Almaty.
AsstrA experts believe that in order to maintain a high level of professional competence, it is necessary to constantly exchange ideas and experience with other market players. That is why it is so important to be an active member in professional communities as well as take part in industry conferences, forums, and other networking events. As a result, the company's experts can offer customized logistics solutions tailored to the needs of each client.
