Designed for cargo traffic (export, import and transit) in the Navoi free trade zone, the Centre can accommodate three modes of transport: road, rail and air. It serves the cargo operations of airlines operating between Europe and Asia, allowing significant reductions in the length of flight routes. The cargo handling terminal, which can cater for 300 tons per day, is rectangular in plan; blue and white colouring and stained-glass windows are used extensively on the facades to break up its mass. The office building serving the terminal has three-floors, with engineering underfloor space. Importantly, the Centre has led to significant job creation in the area.
