Incorporated into Efesan Group in 2008, EfesanPort has the capacity of handling 3.000.000 tones of general cargo, dry bulk cargo, design load, and also 300.000 pieces of wheeled and tracked vehicles annually. EfesanPort conducts all its operations in its completely customs bonded area of 100.000 m2.

EfesanPort is the closest Ro-Ro port to Istanbul, which is Turkey’s biggest automotive market. Being the port of call for more than 200 Ro-Ro ships annually, more than 250.000 vehicles are handled and stocked for import and export purposes. More than 1/3 of Turkey’s vehicle imports are handled in EfesanPort.
With a corporate level of understanding, EfesanPort continues its operations for infrastructure replacement, developing, enhancing and sustaining service areas since 2008. In addition to an existing customs-bonded multi-story parking garage with a capacity of stocking 4.500 vehicles as well as another customs-bonded multi-story parking lot with a capacity of stocking 2.500 vehicles; EfesanPort will have the capacity of stocking 13.000 vehicles at the same time following the construction of the multi- story parking garage covering a 130.000 m2 area, which is planned to be completed in 2019.
