In order to increase the international awareness of Turkiye in the logistics sector, transportation corridors and connection routes will be created between the countries around the Black Sea and the Middle East countries.
Turkiye will develop alternative routes on European, Mediterranean, Aegean and Black Sea Ro-Ro lines to increase its share in world maritime trade, and will encourage new Ro-Ro line operators to enter the market.
