Durres - At Easter EMS Albanian Port Operator Shpk (EMS APO) has started a regular train connection between Durres East Terminal and Kurum Steel in Elbasan, about 80 kilometers to the east.
The trains load scrap metal at the EMS APO terminal imported by sea ships and return with iron ingots exported via the EMS APO terminal. “EMS APO started operations a year ago and has invested massively into the infrastructure of the East Terminal“, says Jens Ströber, branch manager of EMS APO.
With five harbor cranes capable of lifting up to 27 tons and a storage area of 200,000 square meters the terminal is well equipped for every kind of bulk and brake bulk cargo. The terminal has direct access to the Albanian rail and road network. EMS APO employs about 80 people. !
