Turkey solves RO-RO issue with shipment via Suez Canal

According to media reports, Turkish exporters made the first shipment of goods to Middle Eastern countries via the Suez Canal as Egypt reported that they did not renew the RO- RO agreement between the two countries, which expired on April 22.

Turkey’s International Transportation Association (UND) stated that Hatay Ro-Ro A.Ş., which is comprised of 55 transport companies located in Hatay, made their first shipment of their goods to Saudi Arabia via the Suez Canal, which enables them to bypass Egypt’s territory. The new route will be more costly than the previous one, but it will significantly lower the transportation time from 7-10 days to 3-4 days.

The UND is still seeking other alternative routes to make transportations to Kuwait, Qatar and Dubai via Iran and the Persian Gulf with RO-RO deals.
