DP World said in its current state, Evyap handles an annual 700,000 TEU with an annual capacity of 1.15 million TEUs, DP World Yarimca can berth four vessels at the same time.

A DP World spokesperson emphasised how the collaboration aims to grow trade infrastructure and enhance supply chain solutions: “DP World (UAE) and Evyap Group (Turkey) have agreed to form a strategic equity partnership between DP World Yarimca Port and Evyap Port. 

“The partnership aims at enhancing and growing trade infrastructure by focusing on improving container port facilities and enhancing efficiencies in the key Marmara gateway market.

“By combining DP World’s global expertise and Evyap Group’s local stature as a business entity, the partnership will aim to enhance supply chain solutions in Turkey.

According to DP World, the Yarimca Port is located near Turkey’s vital industries and the main organised industrial zones (OSB) and provides companies with the most cost-effective alternative.
