Emre Eldener
Watch Your Language

     Emre Eldener, President of UTIKAD makes a point during opening ceremonies at 13th Logitrans Istanbul Wednesday.
     “At UTIKAD we continued our effort to develop the Turkish logistics industry and to facilitate those activities into the global economy.”
     The hour-plus, kick-off event delivered speeches by a parade of the shakers and movers of transportation here to a mostly Turkish audience in three spoken tongues including Turkish, English and German.
     The few headsets available for translation were useful, as acoustics on the trade show floor-based meeting sessions area surrounded on two sides by busy visitor stands, made deciphering what was being said, tough in any language.

Jurgis Adomavicius and Bunasta Customs Brokers
Clever Jurgis Eases Customs Borders

     “I began in Lithuania moving consignments between Vilnius and Minsk (Belarus),” Jurgis Adomavicius, CEO and Co-founder, Bunasta Customs Brokers (pictured second from right) told FlyingTypers.
     “The distance between those two cities is 180 kilometers, about an hour’s drive apart.
     “But to clear any type of cargo through customs between those two countries could take up to four days.
     “I thought that since I was clever enough to start up a successful trucking business and understood my market and its challenges I should be clever enough to figure a way to get cargo cleared faster throughout the region.
     “So in 2012 we opened up Bunasta, offering service to the EU and the Eurasian Economic Union.
     “Bunasta today has 2,400 clients clearing several thousand trucks a day.
     “Now,” ‘Clever’ Jurgis declared, “we have to work at taking paper out of our business.”

Ceren Tuna Tokath, Emrah Arslan and Isa KorkmazStart Up Ceren

     “Once I tried to export some products and discovered some difficulty doing that.
     I joined up with two partners, and we worked over a three-year period of time to create a platform which would allow small and medium size shippers access to freight quotes and companies, and our company NAVLUNGO was born here in Istanbul three months ago,” said Ceren Tuna Tokath, here with co-founder Emrah Arslan (left) and co-founder Isa Korkmaz behind her.
     “Navlun” in Turkish means freight, and “Go” means what the word says,” Ceren smiled.
     “Today more than 1,000 customers are utilizing our platform,” ‘Start Up’ Ceren said.
