CQR Istanbul launches ro-ro service- Hayadarpasa Trieste

Last month, EKOL Lojistik, which operates as CQR’s exclusive agent in 6 cities in Turkey, launched a new Ro-Ro service between the ports of Hayadarpasa, Turkey and Trieste, Italy. The vessel’s names which are leased with a commitment to purchase, are determined as HATCHE, QEZBAN and PAQIZE and will carry out three weekly round trips.

 The maiden voyage took place on 12th January; a vessel packed to capacity with 240 trailers, each representing an exclusive EKOL customer. With offices based at the ports, the team cleared all the goods and prepared all the documentation on behalf of their clients, as well as hiring Mafis, lashing equipment and security. In addition to port side services, EKOL loaded a number of the trailers at their warehouses, where they also provided packaging and palletizing services.

EKOL’s Agent Relations Manager, Devrim Koray, said, “With our strong technological infrastructure and sectoral experience, we have strengthened our intermodal transportation service with the Ro-Ro services, and aim to offer more productive, high quality and sustainable services in order to enhance the competitiveness of our customers. We wish this initiative to be beneficial for our country, to the sector and to all our customers.”
