UTC Overseas strengthens functions of Azerbaijan office

By: | at 06:34 PM | Transport Intermediaries  

UTC Overseas Inc. has announced that it has expanded and strengthened the functions of its Azerbaijan office to better serve the needs of its customers in the region. Originally opened in 2012 as UTC Overseas, Ltd., a non-commercial representative office under the management of Elnur Mammadov, the organization has now been structured as UTC Caspian, Ltd. LLC with fully operational and commercial responsibilities. The announcement was made by Mr. Mammadov, who has managed the Baku-based office since its opening. Mammadov previously served as a company representative in the country.

Mammadov is a graduate of the Azerbaijan University of Foreign Languages and has additional certification in customs clearances, import/export procedures, and transportation cost-management. He is currently pursuing an Executive MBA degree in a dual program of the Maastricht Business School of Management and Azerbaijan Diplomatic Academy with planned completion in 2015. He is fluent in Azeri, Russian, Turkish and English. Over the past decade, he has provided on-site project management services for shipments in power generation and distribution - including wind farms - and oil and gas production and refining. “The Azerbaijani economy is strong,” Mammadov notes, “with major investments underway in oil and gas – including a new gas pipeline from Azerbaijan to Europe—set to go online in 2016. Regional projects are being developed for power generation, construction, and agriculture. Additional regional plans include major infrastructure construction, cement plants, highways, and mining. Our location between Europe and Asia makes us an important transit route for cargoes moving to and through neighboring countries as well.”
