Romania – Constanta
In November 2003, DP World was awarded a long-term concession to operate Constanta South Container Terminal (CSCT) SRL, a state-of-the-art facility with excellent deep-draft access located near the entrance to Constanta port. The terminal is acknowledged to be the Black Sea’s premier container terminal, serving both the Romanian domestic market and a wider hinterland spreading into parts of Central Europe, together with first class feeder connections to the Ukraine, Russia, Georgia & Moldova. The port’s geographic location has also proved ideal as a reliable transhipment hub for the greater Black Sea region.
DP World Constanta offers importers & exporters in Central Europe speedier and more cost effective access to the Far East market than movement via the traditional routing over North Continental ports by avoiding congested intermodal bottlenecks in Western Europe. To promote this routing, DP World is actively developing an intermodal network reaching out from the port to assist shippers in the movement of their cargo.
The CSCT development includes a new highway link with a two lane fly-over for clear and un-congested road access whilst national and international rail connections are serviced by a dedicated, multi-track rail terminal operated by rail-mounted gantry cranes. The use of industry-leading IT systems ensures that CSCT has rapidly become both Romania’s and the Black Sea’s leading container terminal.
