Turkey’s First Export Freight Train Departs from Tekirdağ to Europe

​​Turkish Parliament Speaker Mustafa Şentop sent off Turkey's first-ever export freight train, departing on November 13 from Medlog Station in Turkey's northwestern Tekirdağ province carrying goods to Europe. 

 The freight train will export goods to Bulgaria via the Tekirdağ-Muratlı railway. It consists of 27 trailers at the first stage, with up to 300 trailers slated for production. It is further aimed to reduce the jam and the setbacks at the entry points and customs with the newly-departed freight train.​​
