The public relations service of the E60 SHIPPING LINE says that 27 voyages have already been carried out in this direction since June 24.
According to the company's commercial director Giorgi Japaridze, two voyages a week on these routes have been carried out and the demand is quite high.
“Voyages have been operated since June 27, on Tuesdays from Poti to the Romanian port of Constanta, on Fridays from Constanta to Poti. Over time, the number of voyages will be increased. Our main clients are trucking companies that work directly with shippers but we also offer container shipping,” he notes.
Japaridze adds that Poti-Constanta ferry service for the first time made direct sea communication with Romania possible.
“Before this, one could get to Europe only by land, through Turkey and from Batumi to Bulgaria by ferry. Freight transport through Turkey carries many risks and requires a lot of time. The demand for cargo transportation from Batumi to Bulgaria was very high, customers were forced to stand in queues. The appearance of this alternative has significantly increased interest in this direction. The journey from Poti to Constantawill take 42-48 hours,” Giorgi Japaridze points out.
