New line for coalition forces, new life for Afghanistan

Balkh Province, Afghanistan – More than 3,000 miles make up the borders of Afghanistan. Yet for all this land, there is not a single view of the ocean, much less a way to receive supplies through the waterways.

For years, Afghanistan and coalition forces have shipped most of their supplies through the Indian Ocean, then trucked through Pakistan before arriving in the south of Afghanistan.

A year ago, nearly three-quarters of everything entering the country came through Pakistan. Now, through a small town in the north, the dynamics are changing. The port of Hairatan is the final stop for cargo destined for Afghanistan through a railroad that starts in central Europe.

Local Afghans load containers of cargo for coalition forces in Afghanistan at the port of Hairatan. This past year, the amount of goods coming into Afghanistan through the railroad ending at Hairatan has doubled. The rails start in Central Europe, and make their final trip here over the Freedom Bridge from Uzbekistan. (Photo by Sgt. 1st Class Peter Mayes)
