Rail freight prices to rise


TCDD Tasimacilik increased domestic rail freight tariff to be valid from today.

Though tariffs are generally updated in the beginning and rarely in the middle of year, TCDD Tasimacilik announced a change in tariff in October this time. The domestic rail freight tariff is increased by 20% as of today.

With new tariff, the unit price has reached to 0.12 TL/km-ton. With this unit price, a transport of 1000 tons for a distance of 1000 km (ie from Kosekoy, Izmit to Adana) costs 96k TL + VAT.

Despite this increase, the domestic prices are still much less than international tariff. An export/import transport from a station 1000 km from border costs around € 30k, which doubles the domestic tariff.
