In February 2017 Danube Logistics carried out for the first time transshipment of Dried distiller’s grains with solubles (DDGS). The total amount of about 2500-2800 tons was delivered to the port by trucks and stored in a warehouse. On 13 February 2560 tons of DDGS were transshipped within 40 hours onto a maritime vessel. Danube Logistics’ client plans to export 15.000 tons of DDGS from the premises of Giurgiulesti International Free Port to Turkey in 2017.
With the direct access to international waters on the maritime section of the Danube river, its access to the broad- and narrow-gauge railway systems as well as its location directly on the border with Romania and Ukraine, GIFP continues to develop as an important logistics hub for Moldova and the region.
