SPAIN. Since 8 June 2020, a new line has been connecting the port of Barcelona to the Turkish ports of Gebze (north-western Turkey) and Ambarli (east of Marmara in the Province of Istanbul). Named Med Turkey Express, it is operated by the German company JSV Logistics, with Marmedsa as forwarding agent at the APM terminal in the Catalan port.

This rotation allows a transit time of between four and five days for imports and between six and seven days for shippers after a call at the port of Marseille.

According to a press release from the Port of Barcelona, "the new service opens up new commercial opportunities with Turkey in domestic markets that have rail services with APM Terminals Barcelona and the Miranda de Ebro depot, such as the north of the peninsula".
