“We connect ports, OIZs and logistics centers with junction lines”

Emphasizing that the biggest point of added value creation of railways is logistics, Pezük said: “As TCDD Tasimacilik, we are working on what we can do both in our country and internationally to get a high share of global trade and logistics. noted. Hasan Pezük, Managing Director of TCDD Transportation, continued: “We want to increase unit train operations by connecting ports, organized industrial areas and logistics centers with junction lines. The number of 12 logistics centers currently served will reach 26. Operational models related to the correct and efficient use of logistics centers are being developed in coordination with our ministry. With the opening of the BTK line in 2017, a great acceleration of international transport has been achieved, while our transport to Iran and Europe, which has grown over time, also supports important pillars of our goal to reach the whole world. With the uninterrupted freight transport model we achieved with Marmaray, Project of the Century, we have saved our business partners time and money.

Because an electric train emits 7 times less emissions than a plane and 5 times less than a car. noted.

As rail transport, we are keeping up with today’s technology by digitizing our “Corporate Resource Management System”. Train control and signaling systems, maintenance services, electronic ticketing systems software, passenger transportation platform software, data transfer need, solution center project, camera recording system installation on the locomotives, establishment of a planning and monitoring center, YHT defines the information and entertainment system, digitization of the locomotive Fault log project, oil analysis monitoring project, locomotive monitoring of freight and wagons, and the digitization of customs procedures, the fruits of the innovations and investments that we have made in many areas come back to us as the satisfaction and success of our customers.
