Analysis Laboratory To Be Established At Samsun Port, Turkey

Analysis laboratory to be established at Samsun Port, Turkey

Samsun, Turkey (PortSEurope) January 10, 2022 – Samsun Provincial Director of Agriculture and Forestry, İbrahim Sağlam, has said that 10 analysis laboratories have been registered in Turkey and one of them will be Samsun provincial control laboratory. The lack of an analysis for agricultural products has caused the Port of Samsun to lose business. Exports of Turkish vegetables to Russia have to be sent to
Mersin, 750 km away, for analysis, since there is no laboratory in Samsun Port. Thus, exporters of cauliflower, white cabbage and red cabbage in the Bafra Plain complain that shipments cannot be made on time. Customers might seek alternative suppliers. The Port of Samsun is located on Turkey’s Eastern Black Sea coastline, around 450km east of the the Georgian port of Batumi. It is Turkey’s largest port in the Black Sea region with a large hinterland. It is a transport hub for cargo coming from and to Anatolia. With its railroad and highway connections, Samsun links with the cities of Sinop, Corum, Amasya, Ordu, Sivas, Erzincan, Yozgat, Tokat, Kastamonu, Ankara, Kirsehir, Kayseri, Nigde, Konya, and Malatya in its hinterland. Samsum is also develop more sea connections with other Black Sea ports in Georgia, Russia, Ukraine, Romania and Bulgaria. The Black Sea littoral ports are actively seeking greater roles as transport hubs in trade between Asia and Europe. Copyright (C) PortSEurope. All Rights Reserved. 2022.
