Award for Ekol Logistics' Paris - Sete train line: Ekol, the pioneer of Intermodal Transportation, was awarded in the Multimodal Operator category with its Paris - Sete electric block train line at the 7th Nuit du Shortsea Shipping et de l'intermodalité Gala held in Paris on December 6. .
Ekol Logistics, in cooperation with VIIA, the most important railway operator in Europe, commissioned its flights from Sete Port to Noisy-le-Sec in the Paris region once a week, in October. In a short time like three months, this line brought the Multimodal Operator award to Ekol and VIIA. Ekol, aiming to add a second Ro-Ro to the Izmir - Sete sea connection, will increase its rail service capacity and frequency in 2017 in parallel with this development.
Regarding the award, Ekol Logistics Transport Group General Manager Murat Boğ; “The Paris - Sete line is key to us. With this line thanks to both Turkey and Iran to Europe, North Africa, the region can connect with a better way to Paris. We are extremely happy and proud to be deemed worthy of this award. This award proves that Ekol's intermodal solution development method is correct. We are planning to install more train lines in Europe in the next few months. ”
Thierry Le Guilloux, Chairman of the Board of VIIA, said: “We are very happy to receive this award. We believe that developing intermodal connections between railways and Ro-Ro ports is important for the transport industry, as we focus on the trailer business at VIIA. We think that the line between Sete Port and Paris is a successful initiative in this sense and will pave the way for similar initiatives. "
