by Port News Editorial Staff

The Turkish operator Marport passes under the control of TIL (Terminal Investment Limited),the port operator controlled by MSC.

The Aponte group has in fact acquired 50% of the shares of the terminal company from Arkas Holding A.S.,a company active in many fields (agency services, port operations, logistics services, but also bunkering, automotive, insurance services, information systems and tourism), which today brings together under one roof 67 companies active in the transport sector and international services.

Marport currently operates two container terminals in the port of Ambarli, near Istanbul, with a total capacity exceeding 1.8 million TEU.

Ambarli has recorded a turnover of over 1.5 million TEUs in the first half of the year, down 6% on 2018.
