Rhenus announces Germany bypass with direct UK-Turkey transport network

Rhenus, has created a direct UK-Turkey transportation route bypassing the existing stopover in Germany.

It means Rhenus can assure clients that goods remain in one network, with unified quality standards and service transparency from collection through to delivery.

Customers in the UK can now take advantage of multiple weekly departures to Istanbul, Ankara, Bursa and Izmir – key strategic routes for shipments from the automotive, chemical, machinery, steel, textiles and consumables industries.

Headquartered in Istanbul, Rhenus Intermodal Systems has offices in Ankara, Bursa, G.Antep, Izmir and Mersin, alongside a network of customer warehouses in Muratbey, Erenkoy Kocaeli and Izmir. This allows UK customers to take advantage of local contacts within these locations.

Gary Dodsworth, Director at Rhenus UK, commented: ″Turkey is an important trading partner within the European market and plays a vital part in our continued global growth. The breadth of the Rhenus network means we have a really strong team in Turkey that, in turn, delivers significant benefits for our UK customers. We are able to offer a one-stop-shop for their forwarding requirements – providing consistency and high service levels that are more critical than ever during such unprecedented times.”
