Rhenus to run direct UK-Turkey route

UK based international freight forwarders Rhenus has opened a direct UK-Turkey corridor that will ensure goods remain in the same network from despatch to delivery.

Up until now the goods had to pass through Germany, but now harnesses Rhenus Intermodal Systems in Turkey. The fact the freight remains in one network means that it has unified quality standards and transparency throughout the journey.

UK Customers can now take advantage of multiple weekly departures to Istanbul, Ankara, Bursa and Izmir, key strategic routes for shipments from the automotive, chemical, machinery, steel, textiles and consumables industries.

Headquartered in Istanbul, Rhenus Intermodal Systems has offices in Ankara, Bursa, G.Antep, Izmir and Mersin, alongside a network of customer warehouses in Muratbey, Erenkoy Kocaeli and Izmir. This allows UK customers to take advantage of local contacts within these locations.

Gary Dodsworth, Director at Rhenus UK, commented: “Turkey is an important trading partner within the European market and plays a vital part in our continued global growth. The breadth of the Rhenus network means we have a really strong team in Turkey that, in turn, delivers significant benefits for our UK customers. We are able to offer a one-stop-shop for their forwarding requirements providing consistency and high service levels that are more critical than ever during such unprecedented times.”
