Neptune Lines celebrates uninterrupted presence in the Black Sea for over two decades
Neptune Lines is operating in the Black Sea since 1993, transporting this year more than 200,000 units from and to all the major ports of the area.
Even when volumes and demand dropped significantly as a result of the crisis in the sector, forcing all major carriers to withdraw from servicing the area, Neptune Lines remained at the Black Sea providing reliable services tailored to the needs of its customers. This has earned us our partners’ trust, and has enabled us to expand our services by connecting all major ports of the Mediterranean with the Black Sea.
Specifically in the Black Sea, Neptune Lines, with a very young fleet (currently with an average vessels’ age of just 5,9 years), calls Constanta every 5 days, Illyichevsk weekly and Novorossiysk every 10 days with 6 vessels, each vessel’s capacity ranging from 1,800 to 4,000 RT.
We offer our customers our unwavering commitment because we are driven by our belief that, in challenging times, it’s all about honoring old relationships and building new strong ones.
Many of those strong links have been forged through innovative tailor made solutions.
When our customers required high volume and high frequency services ex Constanta to the Western Mediterranean as well as to North Africa, Neptune Lines was there to assist and established a new loop according to those specific requirements.
RNPO awarded Neptune Lines with “Best Supplier for Delivery Management – SEA” in 2010 and in 2012 Neptune Lines was awarded “Shipping Company of the Year” by the Automotive Supply Chain Magazine.
For GEFCO, we have started in 2008 to have regular services from Italy and Spain to Illyichevsk. With the rising demand to have a direct port on entry into Russia, GEFCO and Neptune Lines supported by the Russian Logistics company TMBC, added in 2012 a liner service to Novorossiysk. This service offers presently access from Spanish, French and Adriatic ports directly into Russia with the potential for further expansion to other areas.
More recently, FORD started to use the Port of Constanta not only as port of exit for its Craiova production but also established a new logistics chain from Germany to Turkey via Constanta, based on Neptune Lines’ services.
We also support our customers with calls to Sevastopol and working on a sustainable solution to Poti in Georgia.
Neptune Lines will continue its quest for Trust, Confidence, Flexibility and Innovation for the benefit of its customers.
