Ecu-Line expands in Central Europe
Non-vessel-operating common carrier Ecu-Line said it will add an office in Sofia, Bulgaria, on January 1.
The new office will be responsible for consolidating containers that arrive at the Bulgarian port Varna out of Shanghai, Shenzhen and Ecu-Line hubs in Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai.
Imports from other regions, such as North and South America, and exports will use existing services via Antwerp and Hamburg.
Ecu-Line also plans to continue to expand in Central Europe opening new offices in Budapest and Prague next year. Ecu-Line said that like existing branches in Poland and Romania they will offer direct import services and export- and import less-than-containerload services via Hamburg and Antwerp.
Ecu-Line has 145 offices in 74 countries.
