The TIR, which cannot go from China to Europe in 12 weeks, can go from Turkey to Europe in 5 days.
Pointing to the logistics advantage of our country due to our geography, Tırport Chairman of the Board Dr. Akin Arslan said:
“About 55% of Turkey’s exports are made to Europe. With the last global supply crisis, Turkey’s importance has increased even more. A container of goods that cannot travel from China to Europe in 12 weeks can travel from Turkey to Europe’s most extreme destinations in just 5 days. On the Europe-Turkey line, where there is a movement of approximately 5 thousand trucks every day, suitable and reliable trucks can meet with cargo owners at the right time, in the right place, in a pre-programmed manner, with the help of artificial-intelligence supported Tırport technologies. As of the second half of 2023, Tırport will organize smart matched FTL, LTL and Partial operations on the Europe-Turkey line for hundreds of trucks every day. As Tırport, we will both prevent millions of dollars in foreign currency loss and contribute to the prevention of thousands of tons of CO2 that will be released into the nature by bringing together thousands of trucks that had to go to Europe and return empty because they could not organize their return load on time.” he said.
Turkey has the largest truck market in Europe with 930,000 trucks on the roads.
Underlining that Turkey has the largest truck market in Europe, Tirport President Dr. Akın Arslan continued his speech as follows:
“In Turkey, which has Europe’s largest truck market, more than 550 thousand trucks/TIRs, 90% of which are privately owned, carry commercial cargo on the roads. It receives an average of 450 thousand trucks per day. In the market, freight payments of 80 million dollars are made per day. As Tırport, which has become Turkey’s largest digital platform by far, we manage more than 4,500 FTL operations per day, including abroad, with a team of approximately 80 people. As Tırport, we aim to reach 250 thousand member truckers in 3 years, to manage more than 30 thousand transports per day, and to carry out at least 5 thousand transports per day on spot.” he said.
