Intermodal Transport: National Peer Review - Turkey
Turkey is growing fast, owing mainly to rapidly increasing trade. In order to facilitate this trade, efficient logistics and transport services are crucial. Yet Turkey is at an early stage in developing sophisticated and modern logistic services and at present is too dependent on road transport. This book argues that Turkey's continuing economic expansion depends on the diversification of its transport modes and especially on the development of efficient multimodal services.
Turkey's role as a hub for Europe, Asia, and the Middle East and as a facilitator of global exchange will be enhanced with a strategy and measures to support a range of intermodal logistic and transport services. This work analyses the current situation and sets forth some of the actions and policies needed to stimulate the development of a truly multimodal transport system.
