Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge will reduce transport costs: UND Chief Executive Fatih Şener said that the stop cost of the 5 will increase at the 3 Bridge.
Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge, which opened yesterday and will greatly ease the Bosporus traffic by directing heavy vehicles, will also reduce the transportation costs. Fatih Şener, Chief Executive Officer of the International Freight Forwarders Association (UND), said that the prohibition of walking on the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge and the traffic on the bridge increased transportation costs. Şener said, “Transporters have been crossing the 2nd Bridge until now. There is a huge waiting cost for us here. The bridge could not be used 4 hours a day, 6 hours in the morning and 10 in the evening. When the ban ended, too long queues were formed on the bridge. For this reason, sometimes the TIRs could miss the ship that they would board, and the transportation was drooping one day. In addition, fuel costs were rising because too much stop and go. ” Stating that a truck that consumes 100 TL of fuel per 120 km, the fuel price can reach 500 lira due to stop-and-go traffic, Şener emphasized that this also increases transportation costs.
PASSING A 1.500 CROWD IN THE DAY
Reminding that there will be no waiting and no bridge traffic on the Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge, Şener stated that the fuel cost and this will be reflected in the transportation especially in the short distance within Istanbul. Şener said, “3. On the bridge, the toll is high, but we will both save fuel and save time. Therefore, it does not affect much, "he said. Şener stated that an average of 2 trucks per day passes through the 1.500nd Bridge and an average of 75 million dollars of products are transported between the two continents, and all these transitions will be provided from the 3rd Bridge.
LOGISTICS CENTER SHOULD BE INSTALLED
Fatih Şener stated that 95 percent of the vehicles coming to Istanbul entered the city and said the bridge cannot solve the traffic problem in the city. Şener said, “For example, a transporter bringing vegetables becomes vegetables and fruits. For this reason, he has to enter the city. ” Stating that a logistics center should be established on the north side of the bridge for the solution of this problem, Şener pointed out that places such as states, warehouses etc. should also be moved here. "Such an investment will have a serious contribution to Istanbul traffic," Sener said.
