Anaklia, Georgia (PortSEurope) February 13, 2019 – Blue Water Shipping has been appointed as the local freight forwarding agent by Van Oord, contractor with Anaklia Development Corporation (ADC).
Services to be provided by Blue Water’s role include vessel agency services, port handling and stevedoring, crew change, customs services and local deliveries.
The port construction project will be divided into nine phases. Pre-construction works started in 2016; the first phase of the project is scheduled for completion by 2021. On completion, the gateway will be capable of handling 10,000 teu vessels.
Blue Water Shipping is a global provider of all logistics services in modern supply chain management.
Royal Van Oord is a Dutch maritime contracting company that specializes in dredging, land reclamation and constructing man made islands.
The Anaklia Development Consortium is developing the Anaklia Deep Sea Port and the Anaklia Free Industrial Zone in the Black Sea to take advantage of China’s new Silk Road policy to develop Asia-Europe trade routes.
The inauguration of the 16-metre deep port of Anaklia, expected in 2020, will re-open the region to international shipping. With 75% of Black Sea vessels having nowhere to dock on the eastern shores, overland trade is only accessible by truck, or through Russia. Anaklia restores multimodal access to Central Asia and the Middle East, all the way to China and India.
