Ukraine to launch ferry services along border with Romania

18.02.19

The ferry services on the Danube River will be opened this summer at a new border crossing checkpoint linking Ukraine's Orlivka village and Romania's town of Isaccea, the Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority (USPA) was quoted as saying.

The opening of the ferry services will reduce the travel distance between Ukraine and Romania by 100 km and will allow crossing the border between the countries without traveling through the territory of Moldova.

Besides, the ferry services with a capacity of up to 1,000 trucks and 250 passenger cars per day will create a new transport junction in Eastern Europe, attract investment and create new jobs in the region.
