Istanbul-Ambarlı

U.N. Ro-Ro operates with three scheduled sailings per week from Ambarlı Port on the European side of Istanbul to the Port of Trieste and one sailing per week from Trieste to Ambarlı. Thus, vehicles departing from the European side are provided to reach their final destinations in Europe without loss of time and money. With the initiation of Ambarlı line this attractive Ro-Ro transportation is offered for cargoes departing from Halkalı, Çerkezköy and Çorlu Custom Offices which also reduces traffic congestion at the highways and bridges of Istanbul.

TRIESTE-SAMER SEAPORT

Trieste Port, located in Italy, is the north-most port in the Mediterranean and has a very large hinterland to west and central Europe.

For further information: www.porto.trieste.it

U.N. Ro-Ro’s secure access to the Port of Trieste is the basis of the ‘sea bridge’ between Turkey and the EU. The port’s features also bring critical responsibilities:
  • The ‘free’ status of the Port of Trieste –which is not available at any other Mediterranean port– offers a significant advantage to the U.N. Ro-Ro customers.
  • The free, commercial port zone of Trieste is subject to a regime of extraterritoriality, pursuant to which the Italian government cannot limit the flow of international cargo passing through Italy, making it the ideal port for Europe-bound cargo traffic from the Eastern Mediterranean.
  • Given the limited number of annual transit permits the Italian Government provides to Turkey, the ‘free’ status of the Port of Trieste is one of the key attractions for Turkish freight operators to use U.N. Ro-Ro’s short sea shipping service.
U.N. Ro-Ro vessels departing from Pendik and Mersin arrive at Riva Triana Terminal, which is operated by Samer Seaports Company. Samer has been working with Turkish firms as an agency and managing ports since 1987, beginning with D.B Deniz Nakliyat and continuing with U.N. Ro-Ro since 1993. By the end of 2013 U.N. Ro-Ro has accomplished its first foreign investment with acquiring 60% shares of Samer Sea Ports.

Riva Triana terminal is based on 98.000 m² and has 3 ramps for docking. An administrative building is located in the terminal for the agency and the customs. Also the Ro-La terminal between Trieste and Salzburg is located in the Riva Triana Terminal. With additional investments Wels (ISU) and Bettembourg (Nikrasa) trains as well as Duisburg and Ludwigshafen trains have started to operate from the same terminal. Turkish Ro-Ro operators are fully utilizing the Ro-Ro terminals of Trieste due to frequent service and high traffic. Port of Trieste has an easy connection to European highways. Riva Triana terminal is operated by Samer.

Samer Sea Port, U.N. Ro-Ro’s subsidiary in Italy – Trieste has been awarded with OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems—Requirements) certification on December 11th, 2015  which certifies that occupational health and safety risk management are in place and being monitored.
