Danube Logistics Establishes Container Service to Moldova
OREANDA-NEWS. June 27, 2012. Danube Logistics’ Bulgarian flagged vessel MV HEMUS delivered the first sea containers of the Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) carrying goods from China, the EU and South America from Constanta South Container Terminal in Romania to Giurgiulesti International Free Port in the Republic of Moldova, the press service of the company informs. The river barge chartered by Danube Logistics can load up to 120 TEU (20” Containers) or 60 FEU (40” Containers) weighing up to total maximum of 2,000 mt.
In case there is sufficient demand, Danube Logistics plans to add a second barge to the convoy, which would double the capacity to 240 TEU / 120 FEU. The new service will provide Moldovan importers with an opportunity to receive their cargo transported in sea containers directly in the Republic of Moldova.
“Routing sea containers via Constanta and Giurgiulesti to Moldova will be a cost effective and efficient alternative to the routing via Ukrainian ports”, Thomas Moser, the Chairman of Danube Logistics SRL, stated.
