2012 THOUSAND TONS IN 363
Can you evaluate the performance of Railway Logistics's 2012 year, which provides professional solutions to its customers in the field of railway transportation?
In Turkey, we are transporting fuel by block trains between İzmit, Kırıkkale and Batman refineries belonging to TÜPRAŞ. In 2011, we carried a total of 980 thousand tons of fuel. In 2012 we were aiming to transport 1 million 700 thousand tons. However, due to the work on the high-speed train line between the Gebze-Köseköy railway in June 2012 and the Izmit-Kırıkkale refineries between the two times each day by the railway transports were moved to the highway. 2012 363 XNUMX year of our fuel transport remained in thousand tons.
What are the destinations of Railway Logistics? What were the prominent regions and sectors in 2012?
our rail transport in the international arena, Turkey, the Middle East and Central Asian countries, including in third countries other than Turkey, are done in two different tracks and regimes. Turkey, our transport line in Central Asia accounted for more export products. In this course, we reach other CIS countries using Iran and Georgia railways. We are the contracted agency of the Ministry of Railway of Turkmenistan.
Vestel, Arçelik, Uğur, Deep Freezer and Kumtel are among the leading customers. In addition to white goods, we also carry food and building materials.
In addition, we carry out transit trains from Turkmen / Bandar Abbas Port to Turkmenistan / Ashgabat and Turkmenbasi Port to Afghanistan / Turgundi via block trains. In addition to the wagons allocated by the Ministry of Railway of Turkmenistan, we rented 1 wagons from Azerbaijan Railways for 50 yearbook. Every week, our 40-45 wagon 2 block train from Turkmenbashi Port is moving to Afghanistan. We have established handling equipment at Poti and Turkmenistan / Sarakhs border stations. Transit and transit operations in Turkmenbashi, Sarakhs, Serhatabat and Poti'de our own staff. The expertise and reliability of our company in railway transportation is known and known in Central Asian countries. Therefore, our transportation activities are increasing day by day.
Could you tell us about the investments you have taken and the projects you have implemented in this process? What are your targets for 2013?
We had important goals in domestic fuel transportation. However, the trains we planned in 2012 were not operated due to the construction of high speed train lines. Unfortunately it is not known which date to run in 2013. Therefore, we could not achieve our goals. But we're not complaining. Because the future of Turkish railways is being built. I assume that closed lines will be opened at the beginning of 2014. In the year of 2014, a large project carried out by TÜPRAŞ at the İzmit Refinery will be completed and started production. Then the amount of fuel to be transported by rail will reach 2 million 630 thousand tons. We do wagon and locomotive supply studies to meet this transportation.
RAILWAY LAW CAN BE REMOVED BEFORE AN ANSWER
How was the 2012 year in terms of transportation and logistics? What steps do you expect to take to your industry in 2013?
Nowadays, the future of Turkish railways is being built. The last 50 has been trying to revive the institution that has turned its back on the government for years, which is a burden on the back of the state and an obstacle to growth. On the one hand, the construction of high-speed train lines, on the one hand, continues to improve the existing lines. View of the railway network on a construction site. Roads are being closed, trains are being removed from the flight. In the meantime, those who move by rail is naturally interrupted. We endure them for new good days.
Simultaneously with the modernization investments in Turkish railways, the operating standard must also be improved. The best solution for this would be the opening of the railways to competition. 3-4 years ago, our Minister of Transport; I The railway will learn the competition, “he said. He announced that they would submit the draft law to the TGNA as soon as possible and finally targeted the year of 2012. This year, the law will come into force, he said. 2012 passed, hopefully in 2013. It is possible for the trainers to learn the competition by working with the private sector rather than the technological development. For this, the law must be put into force as soon as possible.
VAN FERIBOT BRUSH!
Railway Logistics Engineering, Industry and Trade Limited Company General Manager and TCDD Old Motion Department Chief Süleyman Yavuz, Turkey, an important transit ferry in Van on the road bottleneck says that it is a result of business logic stemming from the monopoly status of the railways the years vaccination. From Turkey to Iraq and could be shipped by railway to CIS countries via Iran 2 million tons / year charge potential Yavuz underlined that no, says the following: "The maximum 300 years, with tight capacity and outdated technology ferries thousand tons of cargo can pass other loads in other ways it is slipping. This line is one of the longest transit lines of TCDD. The transport distance in this line is sufficient to provide a significant amount of transit foreign exchange input to the TCDD. For example; In the 2011 from Turkey 14 European countries to 602 thousand tons in exchange for heroin is shipped goods 11 million 50 thousand transport while achieving revenue, 216 Iran the same direction thousand years 200 tons of goods were shipped and 13 million 789 thousand transport revenue was obtained. On a line with a high transit potential, customers are not given wagons, and there is also a restriction of demand on the line. The private sector's logic and dynamism does not favor this path, ie it does not restrict demand and removes restrictions on transport. This is the difference from the business logic of monopoly status.
