The first privately funded freight train has departed from Anatolia to Europe as a part of the Great Anatolia Logistics Organizations Inc., representing a partnership of 93 entities from the affiliated chambers and exchanges of TOBB. Speaking at the departure of the first train, attended by the Transportation, Maritime Affairs and Communication Minister Binali Yıldırım, TOBB President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu emphasized that the project will increase the competitive power of the Turkish private sector and said, “The transportation network is like the circulatory system of the body. If the veins fail to work the system will become blocked. If the transportation network is defunct in a country, the economy will not grow.”​
