Part of that will see the new aforementioned port on the country’s south-eastern coast, although there are no further details on size.

MOL says the deal “comprehensive strengths that enable the provision of one-stop solutions to the various transportation needs of customers,” and that it will strengthen the carrier’s business structure in Turkey and Africa.

Tosyali is a major Turkish steel company, with a 2018 output of over 10 million tons and is developing its business on a broad scale both in Turkey and around the world.
