Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/30/2015 -- Following a year in which BMI saw freight volumes steadily increasing in Turkey, 2015 will signal further growth across the whole of the freight transport sector in line with our macroeconomic forecasts for the country.

Total trade is projected to pick up with our Country Risk desk forecasting a y-o-y increase of 5.0% in 2015 following an estimated growth of 3.25% in 2014.

Road freight will continue to dominate the sector, projected to grow by 5% in 2015. The mode has made a prompt recovery from the downturn and enjoys the benefits of not having to make any reductions in road haulage volumes, such as those pledged by the neighbouring EU.

Growth in rail freight volumes will continue to be helped by the Marmaray rail tunnel under the Bosphorus Strait, which was opened in 2013.

The throughput at the Port of Ambarli, one of Turkey's largest ports, is set to continue strong growth in terms of tonnage. Over the medium term we project further increase in freight volumes at the port and the recovery to their pre-downturn levels.
