DFDS expands cooperation with Turkish Ekol Logistics

DFDS and Ekol Logistics, a leading Turkish transport company in the market between Turkey and Europe, agreed to significantly expand their cooperation, the company said in a press release.

The agreement covers sea transport of trailers between Istanbul in Turkey and Trieste in Italy and DFDS expects it to increase its volumes of freight units in the Mediterranean by close to 30 %.

To accommodate those extra volumes, DFDS will expand terminal capacities.

DFDS will also increase ships capacity by allocating further ships to this market, including two new freight ferries to be delivered from a Chinese shipyard in the early part of 2019. The ships will be the largest ever in DFDS’ fleet and offer space for 450 trailers each.
