Turkey’s Iskenderun Port Damaged by Earthquake

Turkey’s Iskenderun Port Damaged by Earthquake

Toronto, February 6, 2023

A powerful 7.8-magnitude earthquake that rocked southeastern Turkey and northern Syria early Monday, has caused operations at Iskenderun, a small Turkish port in the Gulf of Alexandretta, to shut down after docks collapsed at the terminal.  At the same time, crews are dealing with a fire that broke out on the pier as well as a multitude of toppled and damaged ocean containers.  Other commercial ports in the area and across Turkey appear not to have been affected, although delays are to be expected.

For more information, please call David Lychek, Director – Ocean & Air Services at (905) 882-4880, ext. 1207.
