Gebrüder Weiss is gearing up for the expected growth in Turkey's logistics market amid its growing appeal for European importers and exporters.


The international transport and logistics company said the preparations include adding more specialists and transport connections available in the country.


"The main focus is on transports between Türkiye and its key trading partner, Germany, as well as the Benelux countries," Gebrüder Weiss said, adding that early in December, as part of expanding its services, the logistics company fully integrated the recently-acquired freight forwarding company 3S Transport & Logistics into the Gebrüder Weiss Türkiye country organization.


Increasing transport demand


"The demand for transport on the Middle Corridor route is steadily increasing. Due to the increased transit volume, Türkiye is gaining further importance as a central logistics hub between Europe and Asia," said Thomas Moser, director and regional manager of Black Sea/CIS at Gebrüder Weiss.


The Middle Corridor runs from Europe through Türkiye, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan to China, providing an alternative route to the Northern Corridor, which runs through Russia.


"Thanks to the fully integrated additional capacities of 3S Transport & Logistics, we are well prepared for this development. We are pleased that, as the transition period comes to an end, the rebranding process has reached a successful conclusion," added Mişel Yakop, country manager Gebrüder Weiss Türkiye.


In addition to the location in Istanbul, the 3S Transport & Logistics location near Düsseldorf was also integrated into the Gebrüder Weiss organization.


It acts as a centre of competence for transport between Türkiye and Germany as well as the Benelux countries.


Gebrüder Weiss has been present in Türkiye for ten years with locations in Istanbul and Izmir and, since 2021, in Mersin on the eastern Mediterranean.


The main activities of the company there include partial-load transports as well as air and sea freight services, pharmaceutical and multimodal transports as well as warehouse logistics and customs clearance.
