Road freight is a lean model; products are transported to Ekol transfer centers and then to the targeted points, all by road.
This method also makes it possible to collect and consolidate products at transfer centers and deliver them to the desired destinations in line with import – export procedures.
Ro-Ro – Road
This type of transport involves two different modes of transports – sea and land. To this effect, it is suitable for high-tonnage products due to the fact that the tonnage holds restrictions on European highways. Products are transferred from European and Turkish ports by Ro-Ro and next switched to land transportation for final delivery.
This model allows products to be transported by land to the ports of Trieste, Sète, Haydarpaşa, and Alsancak, and later consolidated and delivered to their final destination by the Ro-Ro in line with import – export procedures.
The intermodal model utilizes three modes of transport: sea, railway, and road. Products are transported by Ro-Ro from their respective ports to Trieste and Sète ports. Next, they are transferred to rail: from Trieste to Ludwigshafen, Ostrava or Cologne, and from Sète to Paris. From there they are carried by road to their final destinations.
Likewise, products transported by railway to Cologne, Ostrava, Ludwigshafen, or Paris are consolidated and shipped by rail to the ports of Trieste and Sète. Finally, they are shipped to their respective ports by Ro-Ro.
Intermodal transportation reduces fuel consumption as well as carbon, particle, and nitrogen oxide emissions. Thanks to green logistics, 365,000 trees are saved each month.
