Transmec Turkey targets further growth after 25 years in Istanbul
Transmec’s branch in Turkey is extending its range of services as it celebrates 25 successful years.
Set up in 1998, the Istanbul branch is an important part of Transmec’s international network, playing a major role in managing freight movement between Turkey, Europe and Asia.
Key destinations include western and eastern European countries, Azerbaijan, Iran and the Middle East.
In addition to providing its own overland transport (FCL and LCL) using Transmec’s vehicle fleet, the branch offers forwarding services by land, sea and air.
It is now extending these services after joining the Global Logistics Alliance (GLA), a forwarding network with more than 5,000 members in 170 countries.
“Twenty-five years on, Turkey remains an important strategic location for Transmec, and we’ve seen significant growth in recent years,” explained general manager, Ayfer Vurgun.
“Our aim is to continue to maximise opportunities and GLA membership will enhance the global forwarding services we’re able to provide for customers. Alongside further development projects in Turkey and the Middle East, this will provide a platform for further growth.”
2023 has also seen the branch resume its overseas shipping for containers, supporting both full and part loads.
The branch, which offers a 5,000 sq m of warehousing, is based at Çatalca, close to Turkey’s largest internal customs office at Muratbey.
