Also 2 2014 of the customs regulation with the amendment dated December 78. substance added to a paragraph of containers filled with Turkey brought by sea to the Customs Territory temporary storage location to be marine port not connected to, is not expected to be adopted by the Ministry allowed Except as required.
As a result of this change, the fact that the container cannot be removed to the temporary storage areas where the activities are allowed to be made by the Ministry, will cause the port areas to be stuck, the existing temporary storage places will be left idle and the ports will not be used efficiently.
