Port of Riga could start servicing capesize vessels next year

07 October 2020

The Freeport of Riga Authority has started the navigation canal cleaning project to accommodate capesize vessels (load capacity above 150,000 tons) at the Port of Riga already in the near future.

Vessels of such size are not currently serviced in ports situated on the east coast of the Baltic Sea and therefore this is an opportunity that would bring substantial market advantages for the City of Riga not only compared to the ports of the Baltic States, but also the ports of Russia.
