Hi,

are you talking about car-carrying passenger night trains like they exist in some countries in Europe? To the extent of my knowledge, they do not exist anywhere in the former Soviet Union. It might be possible to send the car as freight on cargo trains, although I have no further information on this. You might want to (have someone) contact Kazakh Railways via E-Mail, preferably in Russian or Kazakh language. Anyway, let us know what you found out, I'm curious as well :)

Any experience airfreighting a motorcycle Kazakhstan (Almaty, Astana) or Kyrgyzstan to Kuala Lumpur or Bangkok in 2018

Postby Adventurer » Sun Aug 19, 2018 7:02 am

Hello Caravanistan Community,

does anyone of you have experience or know somebody who has experience with airfreight out of Kazakhstan? Either from Almaty or Astana?
I am looking for a reliable service provider or information on how to do it myself to get my motorcycle to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (or alternatively Bangkok, Thailand). I am aiming to get transportation organised for first two weeks of October 2018.
I am grateful for any feedback. Alternatively also Kyrgyzstan would be an option for me.

Regards,
Christian

Hi,

I'm looking into this as well. Cheapest I've found yet is 2500 euros. I think I've emailed about 30 companies by now, so a lot.

Via truck is still the only possibility I have found. Train is almost certainly cheaper, but it is difficult to arrange if it's for private use.

I will continue looking, so I will let you know if I found something cheaper. Please do the same.

Kind regards,

Ewald

Hi

Three things to know
The kazak railway (https://www.railways.kz/) don't do this service
The msc company (https://www.msc.com) present in almaty don't do this service (by train), only by plane and sea.
And the last , globallink (http://globalinklogistics.com) present in almaty, tell me between 2000 and 3000$ to put the car on a truck to do Almaty - Kiev.

This are the only info i Can share because it's hard to get some.

Good luck

Hi Christian,

No - I have no experience regarding airfreight to Malaysia.
But, and that might help you a bit, I can Name a reliable freight forwarder. You should contact

http://globalinklogistics.com/country/Kazakhstan

They shipped (by road) our 2 motorbikes from Atyrau to Germany back in 2008.
Being extremely helpful and delivering on time I have a high opinion of them - but do not forget this happened 10 years ago.
Things might have changed!

Hope that helps!
