Gebrüder Weiss focuses on Türkiye's logistics market
Turkish freight forwarder 3S Transport & Logistics fully integrated
Gebrüder Weiss is preparing for Türkiye's growing appeal to European importers and exporters with the main focus on transports between Türkiye and its key trading partner Germany as well as the Benelux countries.
"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 organisation," says an official release.
"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," says Thomas Moser, Director and Regional Manager, Black Sea/CIS, 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, the release said.
"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," adds 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 organisation, the release added. It acts as a centre of competence for transports between Türkiye and Germany as well as the Benelux countries.
Gebrüder Weiss Holding AG, based in Lauterach, Austria, is a global full-service logistics provider with about 8,000 employees at 180 company-owned locations. It posted annual sales of €2.5 billion ($2.95 billion) in the last fiscal year (2021).
