Pan-European logistics operator P&O Ferrymasters has announced plans to make Turkey a hub from which it plans to service destinations across the Middle East. The company is to open five new offices across Turkey over the next two years, adding Izmir, Ankara, Mersin, Bursa and Gazientep to its existing base in Istanbul.
Murat Bog, Freight Management Director at P&O Ferrymasters, says, “This expansion will further strengthen our capacity to deliver solutions for customers across both Europe and Asia. We plan to build on our schedule of daily departures to and from Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan to make Turkey our central hub for customers accessing the entire Middle East, Russia and Ukraine.”
P&O Ferrymasters works with companies in sectors including fast-moving consumer goods, retail and textiles. At present it uses its 45ft high cube container fleet and this year plans to incorporate trailers into its operations. The company is part of P&O Ferries, which in turn is a division of DP World.
