Maersk announced that it is now able to offer direct bookings to Ukraine from anywhere in the world, alleviating a common customer issue over the last year since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Therefore, the Danish carrier started a new weekly barge service from the Port of Constanta in Romania to the Port of Reni in Ukraine. This service is now fully operational across two routes – via the Constanta/Danube Channel and the Black Sea – with a transit time of approximately 1.5 days.
Maersk added that its systems are updated and ready to accept direct customer bookings to the Port of Reni.
The company noted that bookings will be subject to operational capacity and the correct documentation being submitted, which includes the legal acceptance of a Ukraine clause due to ongoing risk in the area.
