TCDD announced discounts for Tekirdag-Derince and Van Lake ferries.
TCDD’s 20% discount for ferries will mainly support international rail traffic both to/from Europe and Iran.
The new tariff valid from today (1st of July 2016) is as follows:
|Tekirdag-Derince Ferry||Van Lake Ferry|
|Standard loads||13,6 €/to||9,6 €/to|
|RID 2 loads||28,8 €/to||12,8 €/to|
|Empty run of private wagons||4 €/to||5,2 €/to|
|Brand new wagons, safety wagons||13,6 €/to||10,4 €/to|
|Empty containers||7,2 €/to|
|Private transport||13,840 €||4,420 €|
RID 1 and 7 must be carried by private transport.
If this new tariff can be supported by regular departures of ferry, some of the Turkey-Europe train traffic may shift to Asian side.
