Port of Galati Romania can become alongside Galati Free Zone a major logistics hub for the transit of goods.
An important project worth over 119 million euros has been submitted for evaluation by the European Commission. The project aims at achieving a multimodal terminal in the Port of Galati – with connection to Free Zone of Galati.
Galati Port was included as a transport hub in the TEN-T network and thus will have access to substantial funds made available through the Connecting Europe Facility. The project will be financed by the Maritime Danube Ports Administration (APDM) and the port operators New Basin Port SA and SC Metaltrade SRL – Galati Free Zone’s major clients.
This project will be able to better highlight the advantages of the city and port of Galati, respectively gauging the capacity of river and maritime navigation by land transportation routes, road and rail. Practically, interconnection arrangements of transport infrastructure will provide a genuine connecting penta-modal transport routes: river, sea, road, railway – ( European gauge plus Russian gauge railway).
From this point of view, Galati Free Zone already offer on its territory, to Romanian and foreign economic agents access to the Danube river and sea type vessels transport, access to the national and international road traffic and, most importantly, direct access to opportunity connection to broad gauge railway (Russian) traversing Free Zone area.
Along with the facilities and the specific benefits offered by Galati Free Zone, the new port development project that is shaping at Galati will still be an important asset for attracting cargo flows by the city of Galati. Moving goods through the port of Galati routes (and by default Free Zone) will bring significant savings in transport costs.
Galati is the second largest port in Romania with access to the Black Sea and from here we can attract freight flows on the Danube – Rhine to the North Sea and we can certainly find partners in Central and Eastern interested in Galati to include routes to countries from the ex-Soviet or even Caspian and the Far East, but provided, of course, to shortening operating times, multiple ways of transportation with affordable prices, so that by Galati, transport costs are lower than other variants
