Iskenderun Bay is located on the North-East end of the Eastern Mediterranean, accommodating governmental and private berths and installations. Due to their geographical proximity, these facilities include oil terminals and dry cargo ports, also serving as gateways to the
Middle Eastern countries. A number of these ports and jetties were built to serve specific purposes, such as importing minerals, ores, fertilizers and scrap and exporting iron and steel oil exports piped from Iraq and probably from Middle Asia in the near future. Iskenderun bay is one of the important ports of Turkey.
