TURKEY's Yilport Holding saw an 18 per cent growth in container volumes across its 22 terminals worldwide in the first half of 2021, handling a total of 2.5 million TEU.

Based next to Istanbul, Yilport lifted 15 million TEU worldwide in 2021 through its global portfolio, reports London's Container Management.
Its global portfolio also recorded just under 5.5 million tonnes of general cargo volume, up 13 per cent compared to the first half of 2020.
Yilport operates 22 marine terminals: five in Turkey, seven in Portugal, two in Spain, two in Sweden, one in Norway, one in Malta, one in Italy, one in Peru, one in Ecuador and one in Guatemala.
Its terminals in Turkey (Yilport Gebze, Gemlik, Solventas, and Rotaport) handled 631,000 TEU, 2.4 million tonnes of general cargo and 1.7 million cubic metres of liquid cargo in the first half of 2021.
The Turkish terminals achieved double digit revenue growth of 16 per cent compared to the same period of 2020, mainly driven by the 26 per cent increase in container volume.
Ongoing infrastructure investment boosted performance as Yilport Gemlik Terminal received four new 23-row quay cranes, becoming the only terminal in the Mamara region to offer eight quay cranes on a single 1,000-metre berth.
Yilport Gebze¡¯s ambitious railway project also started in early 2021 and aims to be active within one year when cargo trains will directly access Yilport Gebze and Rotaport terminals.
The company also has plans to create a new inland rail terminal near the capital city of Ankara, which is scheduled to be operational in the first half of 2022.
In the Nordic Region Yilport Gavle, Oslo and Stockholm Nord terminals handled an overall container volume of 260,100 TEU and 862,700 tonnes of general cargo.
While Yilport Oslo saw a strong rise in containers of 15 per cent, overall container volume was up five per cent compared to the first half of 2020 in the Nordic region.
Yilport Gavle invested in three Super Post Panamax semi-automated STS cranes and six semi-automated RTGs which will be operational before the end of 2021.
The company¡¯s Iberian terminals handled 593,300 TEU and 1.3m tonnes general of cargo in the first half of 2021, representing an increase of 10 per cent and 5 per cent respectively.
Yilport Holdings continued its investment in the Iberian region, commissioning three superpostpanamax cranes for Huelva and two superpostpanamax semi-automated 24-row cranes manufactured by Mitsui E&S for Liscont which will be operational by the end of the year.
