Water mode of transport plays a major role in international trade. This is the reason why the majority of transported cargo on the territory of Latvia is transit, which is successfully obtained from ships by rail.
Slow speed is completely compensated by high loading capacity of the ships and low transportation costs, which makes it perfect mode of transport for all sorts of industrial goods.
Waterways are a great supplement mode of transport for railway if the infrastructure of the sea port allows it. Luckily all three major Latvian ports (Riga, Ventspils and Liepaja) are fully equipped to transfer almost all kinds of cargo from water onto rail.
“LDZ Loģistika” Ltd has a close relationship working with 9 major terminals in the Baltic region, providing efficient transportation of containerized cargo from water onto rail.
