Veysi Kurt, General Manager of TCDD Taşımacılık AŞ, who recently went to Denizli for field surveys, visited Müjdat Keçeci, Chairman of the Denizli Chamber of Industry, in his office and exchanged views on the transport potential in Denizli.
Connecting production centers to main railway and ports increases our competitiveness
In 2016, it is estimated that approximately 26 million tons of freight is carried by rail, but rail freight transportation has a higher potential, and that it is of great importance to ensure that the production centers in all corners of Anatolia are connected to the main railways and ports, and that if this is achieved, the competitiveness of our country will increase. Kurt, or The work to be carried out in the Bozburun area station continues. We're working on the port. We expect this to be a significant increase in the load capacity. In the coming days, these studies will accelerate. We have received information about the Çardak Organized Industrial Zone from the President, and the fact that the production areas are connected to the main railway lines and ports with the contour lines provides great advantages. For this reason, we have made it our priority targets to connect the organized industrial zones directly to the port. Denizli, which is one of the exporting cities of our country, will increase its competitiveness with its logistics investments. " said.
Cooperation with TCDD Taşımacılık AŞ
Keçeci also, that the city of Denizli, Turkey's eighth exporter logistical sense, but still said to be adequate emphasis on: "We live in quite a logistical difficulties weakens our ability to compete in the international arena. The lack of a direct rail connection to the port pushes us into road transport, which leads to a negative situation in terms of costs and the environment. As in developed countries, we have to carry our cargo by rail and sea. After meeting with General Director of TCDD Forwarding Inc. Veysi Kurt, I hoped to solve our problems. Our cooperation with TCDD Transportation will continue to increase. T
