Logistic services on Poland-Romanian corridor to improve

Freight forwarder PKP Cargo and the Port of Gdansk Authority have signed a Memorandum of Cooperation with Romanian state rail cargo operator CFR Marfa and the Port of Constanta Authority. The agreement is set to boost logistic services on the railway corridor between the Port of Gdansk and the Port of Constanța.

The project is part of the political and economic Three Seas (Baltic, Adriatic and Black Sea) Initiative, aimed at developing railway connections operated within the European transport corridors, with a particular focus on the East-Central and Southern Europe region. The logistics services offered should provide an efficient alternative transport route between the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea areas.

North-south route

“The potential of the countries of the region is not being used to the full extent today, so we are striving to ensure its development”, said Maciej Libiszewski, President of the Board of PKP Cargo. “We are a transit country, our east-west routes are well-developed. The time has come to take our activity forward, also on the northern-southern Europe route.

“I am convinced that thanks to the cooperation with the Port of Gdansk and our Romanian partners, trade – made possible also through railway connections between the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea – will intensify”, he added.

Boost of econmies

Lukasz Greinke, President of the Board of the Port of Gdansk Authority commented: ”One of the current priorities of the Port of Gdansk is cooperation on the development of railway connections in order to reach our partners and support the Polish economy even more effectively.”

The project will be carried out in cooperation with freight forwarders from the PKP Cargo Group and the CFR Marfă Group.
