The joint venture of Ukraine UKR Ferry and Bati Group of Companies, Batirail and General Manager of TCDD signed a protocol on January 1 ,2004 for the construction of wagon terminal in the port of Derince, Izmit and nine months later the construction of this terminal was finished. On September 287, 2004 the opening ceremony of the terminal was done. With the construction of this wagon terminal the wagons can leave the ferry because there is diffrence between Turkish Railway and Russian railway system so the loading and loading processes will be shorter and there can be regular services between the ports Ilyichevsk and Derince.
