Useful tips

Haalboom and Eastern Europe

In terms of geography, Eastern Europe includes the European part of Russia, Belarus, the Ukraine, Moldova, Azerbaijan and other CIS countries, as well as the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Yuzhny, Ukraine has the largest deep-water port in the Black Sea and also the youngest.

In addition, Yuzhny tops the list of the top three leading ports in Ukraine (Chornomorsk, Odessa, Yuzhny) and ranks among the top in the country in terms of cargo turnover. The port is located on the north-western shore of the Black Sea in the ice-free Maly Adzhalyk Liman, 30 kilometres from the port of Odessa.

Haalboom and Asia

Central Asia is a collective term for the large region in the centre of the continent of Asia. This usually includes the present-day states of Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Kyrgyzstan, as well as the autonomous regions of Sinkiang (Xinjiang) and Tibet (western provinces, where the geographical centre of Asia lies), which belong to China.

Kazakhstan can be reached by train via Moscow (Moscow-Almaty route, around four days). The first test train of the Trans-Asian-Railway (TAR) ran in 2003. This route runs from Turkey through Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan to China and is the only east-west connection in Asia that does not pass through Russia and has practically no significance for passenger traffic. For the onward journey to China, there is a train between Almaty and Urumqi, China. OTTO HAALBOOM Internationale Spedition needs around ten days for the Germany-Almaty route.

Haalboom and Africa

West Africa, northern Africa and southern Africa are served smoothly by OTTO HAALBOOM Internationale Spedition for imports and exports.
