Then Rail Turkey News started for publishing short news. Rail Turkey Akademi opened as knowledge center in Turkish. Turkey’s first rail freight terminal database, Rail Turkey Terminal started. The result was encouraging, grew by 15% every month, monthly visits reached over 30k from 5k in one year. And now introduced its new face.
