Turkish Straits: Waiting Times

The Turkish Straits are among the most important maritime trade corridors in the world. Both the Bosporus and Dardanelles Straits comprise the Turkish Straits, which together enable tens of thousands of vessels to pass through them each year. In 2019 alone, 40,000 vessels transporting nearly 650 million tons of cargo utilized the Turkish Straits, proving their incredible worth to global commerce. Narrowing often to as little as 700 meters apart, the shores of the Straits are home to more than 22 million people in cities like Istanbul.
