M Today, the structures named hizmet Logistics Center ıza with the way of editing are unfortunately in a structure far from serving the purpose. Even so, some logistic center candidate areas do not even have road connections. Similarly, there are no railway connections to ports close to logistics centers. As UTIKAD, we are continuing our research studies in order to establish these centers correctly and provide high benefit especially in intermodal transportation. UT

Referring to the amendments made to the Customs Regulation, Turan said, yer With the amendment made, full containers brought by sea to the customs zones are not allowed to be taken to temporary storage areas without scaffolding connection except for the mandatory cases to be determined by the ministry. As a result of the change in question, goods cannot be removed from containers by the port operators and other organizations to the temporary storage locations established outside the ports. With this application, the port areas are already full. These negativities experienced in our ports negatively affect both our sector and foreign trade. Liman
