The port of Giurgiu is located at the crossroads of 3 Pan-European transport corridors, one of them being the Danube, with a direct connection to the Black Sea. The port authority CN APDF SA Giurgiu, is in need of a well-developed transport system to be achieved by facilitating access to port infrastructure & cargo handling operations at berths and eliminating delays & traffic congestion. This would increase safety and facilitate the transportation of both goods & containers.

Through its participation in DaHar, APDF wishes to obtain a concept for developing an effective, intermodal transport infrastructure, connected to the European transport network, which will facilitate its integration into the European economy and allow the development of new activities & of the domestic market as well. The results of the project will also facilitate the diversification of economic activities in the port, ensuring concerted industrial development of Giurgiu port and of the surrounding area in order to increase competitiveness. Moreover, DaHar will contribute to an increased utilisation of the Danube and thus to reducing the negative effects of transport on the environment by promoting inland waterway transport.

The national company will work closely together with the Municipality of Giurgiu, as its strategic partner regarding port development. Besides bringing into the project its expertise & know-how gained through its previous activities, including the participation in several relevant projects, APDF will contribute to DaHar by actively taking part in the logistical infrastructure of ports and in RIS related cargo transport management.
