Transport and logistics company, cargo-partner, is celebrating its fifth anniversary in Turkey with a new 20,000-square-metre warehouse in Istanbul.
The Austrian firm said it chose the location because of its proximity to the city’s new airport and seaports, as well as its connection to Europe via North Marmara Highway.
The move marks an important milestone for the company and will create 85 new jobs, increasing the total number of employees in the country to 250.
The company’s main offerings in Turkey include temperature-controlled shipping and emergency services by air and road. It is also providing a growing number of short sea services as an alternative to trucking.
The new warehouse provides a capacity of more than 20,000 pallet slots and has 17 loading docks for all vehicle types, enabling fast transhipment, customs bonded warehousing and distribution throughout the region.
In recent months, the company has expanded in China.
