The Word @ Logistrans Istanbul
As Logitrans 2018 opens its yearly tradeshow expo in Istanbul, Turkey, November 14-16, we spoke to Turkish Airlines VP Cargo Turhan Özen.
Not only is the news positive right now at Turkish Cargo, the ever-expanding, go-go world of Turkish Airlines is front and center as the opening of the newest and most advanced international airport in the world continues all this month in Istanbul.
“We are very excited to report our all-new, purpose-built, advanced cargo center at New Istanbul International Airport is scheduled to open March 2019.
“In terms of business for 2018, Turkish Cargo is delivering performance numbers in line with our drive to become one of the top five air cargo carriers in the world.
“So far for the year in 2018, overall Turkish Cargo tonnage has risen 22 percent while revenue has increased 30 percent,” Turhan enthused.
“For 2019 we remain positive and confident in projecting continued moderate growth.
Mr. Özen also noted that Turkish Cargo continues to increase the number of QEP (Qualified Envirotainer Provider) accredited stations.
“We now have QEP accreditation for 15 new stations, including Helsinki Taipei, Vienna, Kuwait, Maastricht, Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Tokyo, Chicago, Madrid, Cairo, Roma, Dusseldorf, Budapest and San Francisco,” Turhan said.
“All of our team looks forward to greeting our colleagues and business partners at Logitrans 2018 Istanbul.
“Everyone is invited, welcomed, and encouraged to stop at our big display at the show to spend some time enjoying Turkish hospitality and learning more about what’s in store at Turkish Cargo, as we build our brand into the world’s best supply chain provider,” Turhan Özen said.
