To offer the best possible service to our clients, we have fix based own port pushers
in logistical important ports.
These ports are:
In addition, we have small pushers, calling ports according to client’s needs, so we
can serve all German, Austrian, Slovakian, Hungarian, Croatian, Serbian, Roma-
nian and Bulgarian ports, along the Danube.
Our pushers are doing the necessary manoeuvres during the loading and unload-
ing, to and from the berth, as well as the handling of the hatchcovers and guarding
of the loading or unloading.
This keeps the company on the one hand independent and flexible and on the other
hand, it speeds up the roundtrips of the big liner and feeder fleet pushers.
Delivery of barges to the ports of Austria and Germany on the Danube part
Komarom-Linz is carried out with convoys, consisting of 4 barges/loading capacity
is up to 6 800 tons (maximum on this part of the river) and ensured with pushers
with capacity of up to 4 000 HP. The voyage round-trip of such a convoy from
Komarom to Linz and return is from 3,0 days to 3,5 days.
To bring barges from the Danube river to the sea port Constanta and back, we have
own pushers, which are doing this shuttle service.
This service is provided by our pushers M/V “München” and the sistervessel M/V
Together with our partner, we able to offer a through service, which includes the Danube transport and the Sea part as well, with transhipping in the port of Constanta.
The service in Constanta is under the control of our local daughter company “Transcanal” (tansshipping, storing, agency services for sea vessels).
At DDSG`s disposal are three own
floating cranes that ensure lighterage
of barges during the shallow water
period on any Danube location
Floating cranes allow us to react promptly to any extraordinary navigational situation on the rivers and carry out lighterage as well as to ensure guaranteed passage of our convoys through restrictive and shallow river parts, depending on navigating situation and prevailing depths.
Up to 10 000 tons/day
