Constanta Port to become member of Trans-Caspian International Transport Route

On June 15th, the National Company “Maritime Ports Administration” SA Constanta and the Association “Trans-Caspian International Transport Route” have signed a protocol of cooperation with the purpose of affiliation of Maritime Ports Administration to the international association as a member. The document was signed in Astana during the IV International Transport and Logistics Forum “New – Silk Way”.
The approach is part of the strategy of National Company “Maritime Ports Administration” SA Constanta to increase the traffic of goods by developing links with Central Asia, an important point of origin and consumption of European goods, but especially a turnaround between China, India and Iran, on the one hand, and the European Union, on the other.
The Trans-Caspian International Transport Route was initiated by the Translogist Intertrans Unigrup company, together with Azerbaijan Railways, Georgian Railways and Kazakhstan Railways.
Trans-Caspian International Transport Route, with a length of more than 4700 km, is a multimodal route connecting China, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey, and reaching Europe as its final destination.
The Trans-Caspian International Transport Route proposes a China-Port of Batumi (Georgia)-Constanta Port (Romania)-Europe route, and, from Iran, the route is directed through Astara-Batumi Port-Constanta Port. Through Dostyk (a city situated in Kazakhstan’s Almaty Region, on the border with Xinjiang, China) to Europe, using Batumi and Constanta ports, the transit time is 20-25 days, while using sea transport from China to Central Europe (through China’s ports and Westen Europe ports), the transit time is 45 days.
The reduction of transit time and costs for freight deliveries, the costs’ optimization and the increase of transit potential are among the route’s advantages.
