A REGULAR feeder container shipping route between the port of Batumi/Poti (Georgia) and the port of Constanta in Romania will be launched by September 20. The new route in the Black Sea region will pass through the Trans-Caspian International Transport Route (middle corridor).
The announcement follows a working group meeting in Tbilisi, Georgia to discuss the technical and commercial details of the new Batumi-Constanta-Batumi feeder route within the framework of the TITR.
The first ship to be deployed on the new feeder service will be owned by Azerbaijan Caspian Shipping Company CJSC. According to the plans, the duration of the voyage between the ports of Batumi and Constanta will take five days in one direction.
The main cargoes on this section of the TITR (middle corridor) are expected to be transit cargoes heading in the direction of Europe - China - Europe, as well as export and import cargoes moving in direction of Europe - Central Asia - Europe.
The participants of the working group expect this new feeder service will significantly reduce the time for delivering cargo on the Black Sea stretch, make the tariff conditions more attractive, and raise the volume of containers transported along this route.
