UMEX is part of the Romanian agricultural group of companies Maria Group.
"We provided Turkmen companies with contact details and recommendations of the main subjects of our group (engaged in port activities, trade, agriculture, shipping, live cattle, alfalfa), in the hope of linking our group with similar sectors of activity in the Caspian region," the company said.
The functioning of the international transit corridor "Caspian Sea-Black sea" was the subject of an online meeting of representatives of state organizations and private structures of Turkmenistan and Romania in June this year. During the meeting, the sides exchanged views on maximizing the mutual potential of the international transport corridor "Caspian Sea-Black sea", focusing on pricing issues in the field of cargo transportation, customs duties, and trade benefits. As noted, the ports of Turkmenbashi and Constanta have geographical advantages and are equipped with the necessary modern equipment. The range of products and types of vehicles that will be used in this project were also discussed.
Another video bridge connected representatives of the Agency "Turkmendenizderyayollary", the Turkmenbashi International seaport and the Romanian company UMEX. During the meeting, the parties discussed prospects for bilateral cooperation.
UMEX noted that the discussions focused on General cargo flows involving the port of Constanta (in General) and the UMEX terminal (in particular), as well as Turkmen projects.
"UMEX is a port operator specializing in handling various types of cargo, including project cargo and fertilizers. These two types of cargo create a link between UMEX services and the countries of the Caspian Sea, including Turkmenistan," UMEX said in a statement.
