High price response in rail transport: Denizli Chamber of Industry President Müjdat Keçeci complained about high prices in rail transport. Stating that the industrialist carried his product at a cheaper price than the railway, Keçeci asked the State Railways to make a reduction in freight transportation prices.
Chairman of Denizli Chamber of Industry Müjdat Keçeci, Term of Merchants Industrialists and Businessmen Platform sözcüHe received his position from the Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce, Necdet Özer. Stating that the completion of the Kaklik Logistics Center by spending 12 million liras is a very important development for the industrialist in Denizli, Keçeci criticized the high prices in railway transportation.
Keçeci said that it is pleasing that the Logistics Center, which is expected to be completed for years in the transportation of the products exported from Denizli to Izmir Alsancak and Aliağa ports, has carried a ton of cargo from Denizli to Ailağa for 16 dollars by truck, but this cost has increased to 18-20 dollars by train. . Advocating that State Railways should reduce prices in freight transportation, Keçeci said:
“While I transport a ton of cargo from Aliağa district of Izmir to 18-20 dollars by train, I bring it to 16 dollars by truck. Also, I make three transfers when I bring it by train, I waste time. I bring it without a truck transfer. Railway transport or road transport should be cheap. State Railways should put their hands on their conscience and calculate accordingly. If we can carry this load, which we carry to Izmir Port for 15-20 dollars, to 10 dollars, I would argue that Denizli industry will grow twice. The industrialist does not earn as much as the money he gives to carry.
