Azerbaijan, known as the “Land of Fire” is a truly mesmerising and unique country and its geographical features are among the most bizarre, yet alluring. The country experiences nine out of the 11 different world climate zones; boasts stunning shores along the Caspian Sea, which is the largest salt lake in the world; and has the largest number of mud volcanoes in the world. Azerbaijan’s culture is just as fascinating, as it delicately balances the influence of ancient empires with the modernised world. The boost in revenue due to oil and gas production, as well as the financial and real estate sectors, has greatly contributed to economic growth. Additionally, as the country decreases trade with neighbouring Russia and former Soviet republics, it’s expanding trade relations with Europe, and in particular, the UK.The two countries have maintained bilateral relations since 1992 and the UK is the largest investor in Azerbaijan, with the energy sector at the core of their bilateral relationship. There are more than 450 UK companies operating in Azerbaijan and the amount of exports from the UK amounted to approximately £730 million. Furthermore, the exchange of goods and services between the two nations promotes the use of trusted and cost-effective parcel delivery services in Azerbaijan.
Azerbaijan spans both Europe and Asia, and yet, its culture hardly reflects either. But, it’s that unique attribute, in conjunction with the boom in economic growth that is making it an attractive destination for travellers and businesses as well as increasing the demand for cheap parcel delivery to Azerbaijan. Specifically, opportunities for UK businesses lie in design, retail, education, ICT and, in particular, infrastructure. Recent years have given way to the country’s investment in infrastructure, however, aid from UK businesses is welcomed to help expand and improve upon the countries extensive railway and roadway systems. The country also provides easy access to the neighbouring countries of Russia, Armenia, Iran, Georgia and Turkey. Azerbaijan’s capital, Baku, is a five-and-a-half hour flight from London. The country’s postal codes consist of four digits preceded by the two letters AZ.
While the rural villages of Azerbaijan have remained largely unspoilt, the cosmopolitan city of Baku has transformed and is known internationally as a prime travel and business destination. As more UK businesses invest and establish roots in the country, the better the availability of parcel delivery services to Azerbaijan.
