TURKISH RO-RO TRAFFIC IN THE PORT OF TRIESTE

This paper provides an economic and organizational analysis of intermodal transport service by means of Ro-Ro vessels between Turkey and central Europe through the port of Trieste. Many traits of this service are innovative, at least in the Mediterranean. These include: the geographical area it connects, the rapid geopolitical evolution, the independent managing of the maritime route by a consortium of road transport companies, the use of combined road/rail transport to reach the European market, the air transfer of drivers, and the transformation to the structure of the companies. This service offers a valuable example for the future of transport between Europe and the new markets in the Levant, located behind the Eastern Mediterranean shores.
