Fallout from Kazakhstan terror attacks could cause cargo delays

The recent killing of four people in Almaty, the country’s largest city, and resulting anti-terror campaign will likely result in heightened inspections and shipment delays, according to a recent client note from logistics management group Move One.

   The recent terror attacks in Kazakhstan could cause some cargo shipments in and out of the country to be delayed, according to a recent client note from final-mile and logistics management group Move One.
   A gunman last Monday opened fire on a police station in the center of Almaty, Kazakhstan’s largest city, killing three officers and one other individual. The attack came just one month after a deadly assault by suspected Islamist militants on gun stores and a military base in the northwestern town of Aktobe, in which seven people were killed and at least 18 attackers were killed by police.
   As a result of the attacks, the Kazakh government has begun an anti-terror operation that includes tightening security in public areas and increased inspections of cargo shipments.
   “With this being the second attack on the security services in less than two months, Move One anticipates lengthier and enhanced inspections of all shipments entering and exiting Kazakhstan,” the company said. “Please allow for additional time with the clearance of shipments to/from Kazakhstan due to the recently announced red alert.
   “Move One has also seen significant changes that could affect deadlines for shipments transiting Central Asia, Afghanistan, the Middle East and Iraq,” it added.
