Romanian, Turkish ports to launch regular transportation services.

By bne IntelliNews February 18, 2011
The Romanian port of Constanta and the Turkish Pendik will launch regular freight lines, Mediafax reported after the signing of a co-operation agreement between the transport ministries of the two countries. A ferry-boat line is also to be launched between the two ports, but the Romanian railway company failed to meet the current deadline. A maritime operator has already announced the opening of the first regular passenger lines between the two ports, Romanian transport minister, Anca Boagiu, announced, adding that other companies are preparing to launch their own lines, as well. Boagiu did not specify the name of the company that will first launch passenger lines, but said it is the world's seventh and the Balck Sea's fourth largest maritime operator. Boagiu stressed that the government aims to make the Constanta port the second largest in Europe after Rotterdam.
