New container ship line on the Danube, which will cut the time of transport on Budapest-Belgrade-Constanta route, will be introduced in mid-August – maritime river agency Jugoagent announced today (August 4, 2010).
– The line will be used by transatlantic companies from China, Indonesia, African countries and the USA, while companies in Serbia will get quicker, more reliable and more economic connection with other markets in the world – Jugoagent CEO Miroslav Saving told the press.
He said at the meeting in the Belgrade Chamber of Commerce that Austrian company Helogistics Holding GMBH would be maintaining the line for minimum one year and that it would start with two departures a week in both directions.
The Austrian company announced that the travel from Belgrade to Constanta in Romania would last for only four days, while the travel back would last for eight days. It will take the ship eight days to reach Constanta from Budapest and eleven days to reach Budapest from Constanta.
– We expect the prices of container transport to drop and they will definitely be lower than the prices of transport via ports of Kopar and Rijeka – said Savic.
The representatives of the Austrian company today presented the possibilities of use of new ship line to businessmen.
