During the meeting, the guests were informed about the position of ASCO in the implementation of international and regional transport projects, activities of its fleet renewed recently, as well as the work carried out by the Company within the Transnational International Transport Route (TBNM).

Rauf Valiyev stressed that ASCO, which provides transport and specialized maritime transport services in the Caspian Sea, has resumed operations in the Black Sea and the Mediterranean basin since 2014, to address a dependence on one market.

The guests were further informed that ASCO has been cooperating with American Shipping Bureau (ABS), the world's prestigious classification company and Ernst & amp; Young, and audit firm. The certificates issued by these companies, including their reports, are posted on ASCO's official website.
