Rostock-Kaliningrad sea service part of the New Silk Road
Since the beginning of March 2020, the ports of Rostock and Kaliningrad have established a regular service between them. The service’s purpose is to connect the New Silk Road directly with the port of Rostock via sea. Cargo that arrives in Kaliningrad by rail is loaded on sea vessels that transport it to Rostock.
