Abstract: The complicated geopolitical situation in the world, the sanctions imposed on the
neighboring country are making their own adjustments to the directions of traffic flows. The article
analyzes the current situation in the Aktau seaport, since the northern transport routes are being
reoriented to the middle corridor – the Trans–Caspian International Transport Route (hereinafter –
TCITR). The authors believe that it is necessary to strengthen the port infrastructure for the
development of the expected cargo flows and conclude that it is necessary to create a container stock
hub in the port of Aktau, which will provide seamless transit on the TCITR route.
Keywords: Trans–Caspian International Transport Route, Aktau port, container transportation,
