Port Complex Ruse EAD will operate a regular block train line between Bulgaria and Germany, according to a media statement of Bulgaria’s Transport Ministry.
The pilot project envisages intermodal road-rail combined transport.
The block train has a capacity of 68 trailers and will make one round trip per week.
By end-2015, around 3000 trailers of cargo are to be processed.
The project is part of the efforts of Port Ruse to develop intermodal transport and introduce new methods of combined road-river cargo transport.
Since July 2014, a regular container line has been functioning between Bulgaria’s Ruse and Romania’s Curtici.
The containers are transported by water and rail.
Nearly 4 tonnes of cargo were transported along that route in the period July-December 2014.
In 2014 Port Complex Ruse EAD reported a profit of BGN 1.2 M and 670 000 tonnes of processed cargo.
The profit of Port Ruse doubled from 2013.
Port Complex Ruse EAD plans to invest BGN 1 M in port infrastructure rehabilitation and in purchasing new equipment and machinery.
