Turkish Straits Transit Agency

TURKISH STRAITS TRANSIT AGENCY

Turkish Straits: It is known as one of the most challenging sea roads in the world in terms of geography, coastal population and traffic density. We monitor the Turkish Straits 24/7 365 days a year with our local offices located in Çanakkale and Istanbul Straits, which follow the passage of vessels of all types.

With the use of technology, we continuously analyze the data on the movements of the vessels in the Turkish Straits, and after filtering and classifying the available data, we inform the vessel / shipowner / charterer / relevant companies about the strait passage timings and provide them technical support for smooth and timely strait passage. Through this continuous monitoring, we accurately estimate the strait waiting times and strait entry times of our customers' ships.

Since the Istanbul Strait is an important supply point for vessels, our team is always on duty to coordinate all supply activities in order to meet the requirements of the ship /shipowner/charterer /related company and to prevent the loss of time Since the Istanbul Strait is an important supply point for vessels, our team is always on duty to coordinate all supply activities in order to meet the requirements of the ship / shipowner / charterer / related company and to prevent loss of time.

For the supply of vessels transiting through the Turkish Straits (provisions, technical supply, technicians, crew change, etc.), the organization of contact with the fast boat (agent boat) is carried out by us without affecting the strait passage plan of the vessel.

Depending on the shipowner / charterer / relevant company demands, we can provide a supply boat organization in such a way that the ship will contact at the anchorage area or, alternatively, in the drift area or after leaving/passing the strait at low speed (on the road) without the need for anchoring, in this way, the time lost for supply is minimized.
