The Yalova Ro-Ro Terminal has seen the start of its operations on October 3.
This Turkish port, located on the Asian side of Turkey, some 100km southeast of Istanbul, is the first port investment made by logistics company Ekol.
The 500-trailer-capacity terminal has a surface of 70,000m2.
All freight operations at the Port of Haydarpaşa will be transferred to the Yalova Ro-Ro Terminal. The Haydarpaşa terminal is located just opposite Istanbul and has been suffering from severe congestion.
Ekol operates nine weekly shuttle services between Turkey (Haydarpaşa, Yalova, Alsancak) and Greece (Lavrio), Italy (Trieste) and France (Sète) with ro-ro vessels HATCHE, PAQIZE, QEZBAN, FADIQ, AYSHE, QUBRA and MELEQ.
President Erdogan and his Prime Minister will open the terminal in the coming days.
