Connecting Istanbul and the UK with the Omerli-Tekirdağ rail service
From Tekirdağ to Felixstowe in 8 days
As part of MSC’s comprehensive range of cargo services between Europe and the UK, they are now offering the Omerli-Tekirdağ rail service via MEDLOG, MSC’s logistics arm in Europe.
 
With Omerli Depot located in Istanbul’s industrial zone, the rail service is ideal for customers looking to transport their cargo onto the fast Turkey Marmara Service into the UK.
 
By moving cargo via rail on this leg of the journey, one can avoid the Istanbul traffic and reduce road miles – enabling a more sustainable supply chain.
 
Once the cargo departs Turkey via Asyaport (Port of Tekirdağ), it’s just eight days until it reaches the Port of Felixstowe in the UK (or 12 days to the Port of Liverpool).
 
From there, MSC offers a complete door-to-door service with a strong UK intermodal network via road and rail.
 
For export cargo, Tekirdağ is just 13 days from London Gateway, 14 days from Liverpool and 16 days from Felixstowe, with the option for onward rail to Istanbul’s industrial zone.
 
With three trains a day running six days a week (Monday-Saturday), the Omerli-Tekirdağ rail service is ideal for customers moving their cargo between Istanbul and the UK
