Kerry Logistics Network Reacts To Growing Demand with New 1S2 Service Between UK and Turkey
“Turkey is a growth market and key cargo hub for the UK, particularly for textiles and fashion, automotive cargo and Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) which have seen a strong surge in demand as companies search for alternative sourcing locations outside of Asia,” said Emma Rowlands, Strategic Sales Director, Kerry Logistics UK.
“We have locations throughout the UK and expert trade teams located in Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, and Bursa. We have been operating in Turkey for 30 years, which makes us perfectly suited for the growth we are experiencing,” Rowlands added.
“Customers are increasingly looking for diversity, flexibility, and multimodal solutions that can be consistently maintained into and out of Turkey, which is why we have created the 1S2 to meet these needs.”
Already ranked IATA’s primary Agent in Turkey, KLN’s 1S2 has been developed to cater to growing multimodal demands and offers: Full Container Load (FCL) and Less than Container Load (LCL) fast transit services to all UK ports; daily Full Truck Load and Less than Truck Load across the European Union (EU); bonded and non-bonded, consolidation, value-added and Quality Control (QC) warehousing solutions; as well as in-house Customs clearance.
In combination with the 1S2, KLN offers a clearance service both on commercial and low value channels which is applicable for e-commerce.
Additionally, trade compliance, customs advisory and other consulting services are available for businesses looking to enter the Turkish market.
