100 companies doing business in Turkey, while 92 preferred the highway, those who chose to railway 5, while those who chose the sea route had 3. The costs indicate that it should be the opposite. Accordingly, while the cost of transporting a good is 1, this figure increases to 4 on the train and 7 on the road. According to LODER, the solution is high speed train…
Competition affecting the Company and the cost of road freight transport in the 92 percent who prefer Turkey has lagged behind the developed countries for cheaper freight transport. According to some experts, the way out lies in the transition to a high-speed train system suitable for carrying loads. While some sectors in Turkey and a unit price of goods transported by sea in general except for the special case 1, the number 4 iron path, the way of the land 7 tactics. In the country, maritime transport is 3 percent, rail is 5 percent, and land transport is 92 percent. According to these figures, Turkey, cheap freight cost in the US, EU, China, are well behind countries such as Russia and Japan. In road transport, Russia is the country that uses this road the least with 9 percent, while in EU countries this rate is 49 percent, 39 percent in the USA, 62 percent in Japan and 14 percent in China.
WE PAY MORE MONEY
Prof. Logistics Association (LODER) President and Maltepe University Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences Department of International Trade and Logistics Management. Dr. Mehmet Tanyaş, compared with developed countries left behind in Turkey, voicing cheap freight, "We are paying more shipping cost. Since this is reflected in the price, competitiveness decreases. Except for geographical and some other compulsory conditions, we need to reach a level in other types of transportation, especially the railway.
CHINA'S CHOICE IS SEA
Stating that railways are mainly used in Russia and the USA and seaway in China, Tanyaş continued as follows: “We are still one of the countries that give the most money to oil in the world. We need to switch to the high speed train system suitable for carrying loads. It is a high speed train system suitable for passenger transportation, which means that it is 230-250 kilometers per hour. When you reduce this to the 180s, when you make fast trains carrying both passengers and cargo, the costs will decrease and our competitiveness will increase. This is our basic policy. ”
Large investment in railway
Especially in the last two years in Turkey, explaining that the budget spent more than by road to rail Tanyaş, "however, it is not suitable for all commodities railways. It may not be possible to use the railroad for an automotive or food product. However in Turkey we can move through the iron has a very significant amount of product. If we achieve this, the costs of industrialists and traders will decrease considerably. ”
