Constanța

The Port of Constanta is located on the Western coast of the Black Sea, at 179 nM from the Bosphorus Strait and 85 nM from the Sulina Branch, through which the Danube flows into the sea. The port of Constanta benefits from an advantageous geographical position, being located on the pan-European Rhine-Danube transport corridor.

The port of Constanta has a major role in the European intermodal transport network, being favorably located at the intersection of trade routes that connect the markets of landlocked countries in Central and Eastern Europe with the Transcaucasus region, Central Asia and the Far East.

The two satellite ports Midia and Mangalia that are located not far from Constanta Port are part of the Romanian maritime port system under the coordination of Maritime Ports Administration SA Constanta
