Gdansk and Constanta ports sign rail agreement

Gdansk and Constanta ports sign rail agreement

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 parties involved hope that the agreement will boost logistics services in the railway corridor between the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea.

The project is part of the political and economic Three Seas Baltic, Adriatic, Black Sea Initiative (BABS).

One role of this initiative is to develop railway connections within European transport corridors, thereby facilitating the integration of EU member states, including countries in East-Central and Southern Europe.

Maciej Libiszewski, president of the board of PKP CARGO, said: “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.

“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.”

Lukasz Greinke, president of the board of the Port of Gdansk Authority said that the Baltic Sea port is currently prioritising the development of railway connections.
