The project cargo terminal will accommodate heavy, large and complex cargo and accompanies a new ro-ro terminal at the port that will handle up to 80,000 vehicles per year at its peak. The facilities represent a combined investment of approximately EUR65 million (USD70.5 million).

A further EUR50 million (USD52 million) will be invested in a multi-transport platform in Constanta that will open in 2025.

In Aiud, an 8-ha intermodal logistics hub has opened following a EUR21 million (USD23 million) investment, which connects rail and road infrastructure.

DP World said that the facilities will improve the connectivity between its existing sea, rail, barge and truck services across Romania and will enhance the movement of goods between mainland Europe through to the Black, North and Adriatic Seas.

The port operator added that it expects the latest investments will encourage and enable major businesses to relocate or expand manufacturing facilities in the region, capitalising on the increasing trend of nearshoring and reshoring.
