About the institution



Giurgiulesti International Free Port is situated at 133.8 km / 72.2 nautical miles from the Black Sea on the maritime section of the river Danube. GIFP benefits from its strategic location in close proximity to Moldova’s borders with Romania and Ukraine. Due to its easy access to the Black Sea with maritime vessels, to countries located along the Danube with river barges as well as inland rail connections to both the CIS and EU countries, GIFP is developing into a major logistics hub not only for Moldova, but for the entire region.
