On 5th and 6th of April 2019 Danube Logistics operated the first time organic grain in bulk for its further transportation via Danube river on behalf of the Moldovan-Dutch venture ProGrain Organic, a resident of the Giurgiulesti International Free Port.
The organic soy beans originate from ProGrain Organic cultivations and were consolidated in its GMP certified warehouse in the business park area. The transshipment of soybeans was performed at the General Cargo terminal via a special large bunker, used for unloading the trucks carrying the cargo from the warehouse and being further lifted by the port crane and emptied over the cargo holds of the ship.
The destination of the loaded 1,200 tons of organic soy beans is Austria. The transportation of organic grains upstream on the Danube to Central and Western Europe is a great business and environmental friendly opportunity
