VTG transforms its business in Turkey
VTG, Germany-based wagon leasing and logistics company, has modified its business in Turkey. It integrated all the local activities into one entity. This will allow VTG to better unlock potential of the Turkish market.
To develop its logistics business in Turkey, VTG has decided to shift to multimodality. To this end, the German company joined its Turkish subsidiaries and local activities into one entity. It combined all the business activities of VTG Rail Europe, VTG Rail Logistics and VTG Tanktainer in Turkey under the umbrella of its local subsidiary VTG Nakliyat.
The transformation was put into effect since 1 May. As of today, VTG’s business operations in Turkey have been jointly led by Sinemis Özden, Managing Director VTG Nakliyat, and Zoltán Potvorszki, Head of Region South Eastern Europe VTG Rail Logistics.
Also, the logistics provider extended its office network in Turkey. Two local offices will be opened on the Bosphorus: one in Halkali on the European side (with a focus on rail transport) and another in Pendik on the Asian side (with a focus on tanktainers). Both will develop new, customer-centric products and services for these markets. After the transformation, VTG Nakliyat is expected to intensify trusted collaboration with existing partners and to sharply expand its range of services around rail, container and multimodal transport.
VTG looks forward to strengthening its presence in Turkey. The company regards the local market as attractive due to its geographical location on the New Silk Road as more and more container trains from China to Europe are running via Turkey.
Another company’s focus is to offer multimodal logistics solutions for the customers. “In the future, we will be able to offer integrated rail, container and multimodal project logistics as well as customs handling and asset hire services in Turkey and the surrounding region – locally and all from a single source,” added Zoltán Potvorszki.
