Ro-ro connections between Trieste and Turkey started in 1987 and presently connect the city to Pendik (on the Asian side of Istanbul), Ambarli and Mersin (South-Eastern Turkey).
8 ro-ro ferries operate on these routes, sailing daily to Pendik and twice a week to Ambarli and Mersin for a total of 8 sailings per week, mostly dedicated to trailers moving between Europe and Turkey, presently set over 150,000 trucks per year.
