The new service features fast connections between the Port of Batumi and the ports in Gioia Tauro, Italy; Burgas, Bulgaria; and Ilichevsk and Odessa in Ukraine.

“The service features improved transit times and increased direct port calls. MSC designed the service to be cost efficient for customers and fast to eliminate the risk of weather-related port closures,” explained Nikoloz Gogoli, BICT Chief Executive Officer.

MSC’s feeder service also links ports in SAEC, SAWC, the US, the East Mediterranean, Thyrennian and other ports South of the Suez Canal. BICT expects the service will be more efficient with the completion in 2017 of new highways that will connect main cities via the shortest possible routes.
