The number of shipments carried out by the AsstrA team in Uzbekistan in the first 11 months of this year increased by 131% compared to 2021.
AsstrA’s Tashkent office grew its client portfolio 31% during this time. Now, this portfolio mainly comprises companies from the FMCG industry (30%), the automotive industry (15%), industrial equipment industry (13%), and the chemical industry (9%).
In addition to the team’s professionalism and flexible and creative approach to handling customer requests, regional economic growth has contributed to AsstrA’s impressive results in Uzbekistan.
Uzbekistan's economy is one of the largest in Central Asia. The country is developing dynamically, and despite global and regional problems, including inflation, Uzbekistan has had strong economic growth in 2022.
The volume of Uzbekistan's foreign trade showed an increase of 22% compared to last year and amounted to $40.1 billion.
China traditionally remains the country’s main trading partner. Uzbek businesses also see increasingly more prospects in interregional cooperation with the European Union, whose top-level representatives also show interest in developing bilateral relations.
The most popular cargo transportation routes served by AsstrA Uzbekistan are Uzbekistan-China, Poland-Uzbekistan and China-Uzbekistan.
"The geopolitical situation has accelerated the diversification of Uzbekistan's import-export flows. New business opportunities and sales markets create fresh logistics challenges,” says Otabek Buribekov, AsstrA Uzbekistan Branch Manager. “So, every day we must search for non-standard solutions for the logistics needs of our customers. We offer options that are optimal in terms of cost and – especially important in the fourth quarter – timing. Our growing customer base indicates the growing trust the market has in us. Our mission is to live up to this trust."
