Experts are aware of the fact that the traffic density and its difficulties will continue to increase in spite of the help of this new system.

Notification of ship transit schedule, performing the necessary notifications, and recommendations for adjusting the speed and passage are basic operational works for Mortrans. There fore, Mortrans provides contact service to the ships with speedy and heavy lift motors launches in Istanbul for anchoring point and transit supply point services and with powerful motors in Çanakkale Strait.
