Tekirdag Derince ferry departed with its loads on Tuesday night from Tekirdag Port, and arrived to Derince Port yesterday.
The Rail Freight Corridor No:7 (RFC-7), connecting Czech Republic to Romania and Greece, had started to operate this month.
Atfer several postpones, the Tekirdag Derince Ferry had done its first transport from Derince Port to Tekirdag Port with wagons on board yesterday.
Months of silence ended and first train departed from Halkali last weekend.
Derince Port will be privatized for 36 years.
Railway logistic professionals worried a lot till today, but October will probably be a real “fest” for them.
The opening of Tekirdag Derince ferry and Halkali terminal at announced dates seems impossible.
The last announcement of TCDD, although not published officially, says that the ferry will start on 5th of September 2013. The further railway connection will be opened by that time as well. Can these be real?
