“THE VERY”s of railway in Turkey

What’s hot


The liberalization started in practice with the split of TCDD into two as railway and train operators. The process has speeded up with the interesting steps within first three months of this year.

While global companies are looking for ways to enter Turkish market, Turkey’s leading logistics service providers are getting prepared to run first private locos before this year ends.

TCDD Tasimacilik’s step of renting its locos and freight wagons may speed up the liberalization much faster than expected.
