The project, which has been developed over 10 years, is a version of a port located on land - dry port and it will serve both trucks and trains.A $60 million financing agreement was signed by Arkas Holding, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC) Turkey during the EBRD Annual Meeting in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo on Thursday. The financing will be partly financed with loans of $30 million each from the EBRD and the ICBC Turkey.

"The financing agreement for the project, which has around $80 million investment value, shows foreign confidence in Turkey," Kalelioğlu said.
The German logistics company Duisport, which operates the world's largest intermodal cargo terminal, has around one-third of the stakes in Railport, he noted. He said that Railport would be a part of China's "One Belt, One Road" project, also known as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), an ambitious project to connect Asia with Africa and Europe via land and maritime networks to increase trade and stimulate economic growth.
