Landlocked Moldova is increasing its efforts to overcome Russia’s export embargo.
It is using a 460-metre stretch of a port on the Danube river to send its good abroad to the European Union and beyond.
Danube Logistics are the Dutch operator’s of the Giurgiuslesti port.
Thomas Moser, Danube Logistics’ General Manager, said: “We saw, because of this embargo, last year for the first time the export of apples. It’s the same with wine, we see a steady increase in the export of wine in containers to far growing markets like the United States and China and elsewhere. We are happy to support the Moldovan exporters in these difficult times.”
