cargo-partner, a logistics provider offering a comprehensive portfolio of air, sea, land transport and warehousing solutions, has opened a new logistics centre with 20,000 m² of warehouse space close to the new Istanbul airport.
The ‘iLogistics Center’ represents a new milestone for the company’s organisation in Turkey, creating more than 85 new jobs and increasing the total number of cargo-partner employees in Turkey to almost 250 by the end of the year.
cargo-partner now has services at 11 locations throughout Turkey, placing particular attention to temperature-controlled foodstuffs shipments as well as EMERGENCY services by air and road.
The facility’s modern design allows for efficient handling and storage of oversized goods, flexible multi-modal services and comprehensive high-tech logistics solutions.
Part of the new warehouse is dedicated to fulfilment services, including a parcel pickup and return point. The warehouse is an important addition to cargo-partner’s network in the region and was added due to strong demand from cargo-partner’s customers for warehousing services.
Kürşad Tanrıverdi, managing director of cargo-partner Turkey, said: “Istanbul is not just the heart of trade in Turkey, but also a major hub for the entire surrounding region.
“This year we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Türkiye along with the 40th anniversary of cargo-partner and the fifth anniversary of cargo-partner in Turkey – a perfect occasion to diversify our services and strengthen our position in the country.
“This new, intelligent logistics facility will enable us to provide a range of fulfilment services for online retailers and meet the requirements of current and future logistics challenges.”
