About Values and Responsibility.
As pioneers in intermodal logistics, we have always integrated sustainability into our transport solutions. And we will continue to do so in the future.
COBANTUR BOLTAS is part of a vital economic system to which we want to actively and responsibly contribute to. The responsibility for customers, employees, society and the environment is our top priority. Of course, we want to achieve our economic goals to ensure our successful, high performing, logistics-group continues to exist. However, a strong identity and our lived responsibility form the basis of our actions. In accordance with the principle of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), we include social and ecological issues in our corporate activities. We are therefore well equipped for long-term and sustainable business.
We live our values. We bear our responsibilities. That is our clear position.
We want to contribute to the success of our customers. To do this, we include their processes in our thinking. Logistics is a service, which is why we have committed ourselves to modern customer success management at an early stage. Services require a high level of customer care. In addition to meeting all KPIs, ultimately it is also our consistently positive relationships with each and every one of our customers that determine our success. Customer orientation means that the focus is on relationships as opposed to product sales. First-class operational quality is a decisive prerequisite for this.

We want our employees to feel comfortable with us long term. That’s why safety, health and a positive working environment for our teams is paramount. Sports facilities, team breakfasts, joint events and individual training programs, show that the subject of work-life balance is not just a fashionable term for us. The proportion of women in management positions at COBANTUR BOLTAS is well above average. If you are interested in a position with us, apply here.
As a logistics service provider, we are especially committed to the issue of resource efficiency. We have dedicted emission-reducing goals and are promoting our environmentally friendly intermodal solutions in particular. Our commitment to sustainability is not limited to just ecological measures, but also takes into account the other two components of sustainability, economic and social. With these three essentials, we strive to ensure a balance between the social, market economy and environmental requirements of modern supply chain management.
We are consistently reinvesting a significant percentage of our profits into sustainable growth, progress and employee development. We are independent of shareholders so we can therefore make sensible and sustainable decisions in the interests of the company and our colleagues. In addition, we are particularly committed to the socially disadvantaged. They are an important part of our society and need our support.
Environmental Management with Green Logistics and Supply Chain
As ÇOBANTUR BOLTAS, in all logistics activities we offer, we aim to perform management in a way that meets customer requirements as well as product, service, resource and information requirements with minimum cost in order to provide space and time benefits.
In line with our activities, factors such as climate change, air pollution, air quality, noise, sound, image, vibration, use of land, exploitation of resources, wastes, pollution, chemicals, toxic wastes, hazardous materials, safety, health and accidents etc. are taken into account in our organization.
As a result of these efforts; establishing a “sustainable green logistics” balance bridge between “economic”, “environmental” and “social” goals is one of our most important goals.
First of all, matters such as energy use and its effects on the environment, reduction of damage to nature, adaptation of the supply chain to the environment, new environmental strategies, transportation, sound, light, exhaust, emission, fuel, reverse logistics and supply chain management, recycling, management of wastes and chemicals, handling, packaging and packaging materials etc. were in corporated into our environmental policy and strategies were developed and put into practice.
Our organization’s establishing environmentally-friendly strategies and policies and their implementation have paved the way for creating new business models and philosophies within our own organization, in all sectors and markets. In order to increase our efficiency with the effectiveness of environmentally friendly policies and practices and to ensure integration with our customers, we have entered into cooperation, consultancy and guidance relationships with non-governmental organizations and logistics experts. These collaborations based on mutual respect and trust with our customers and suppliers have made our organization more modern and suitable for green systems. This situation has become a source of pride for factories, companies, companies and other sectors, as well as an important means to increases our competitiveness.
Our goals and programs regarding our green logistics practices and gains for a better world and higher quality of life are as follows:
- Transporting products in larger batches rather than shipping them in small batches,
- Use of alternative environmentally-friendly fueled lifting and conveying vehicles for loading-unloading and shipping,
- Using vehicles with EU 6 engine,
- Installing noise and sound suppressors on vehicles,
- Using environmentally-friendly and efficient transportation and distribution systems,
- Reduction of general packaging procedures and materials used,
- Using recyclable materials instead of plastic ones,
- Using pure (unalloyed) products in a sustainable manner,
- Environmentally-friendly recycling,
- Just-in-Time Logistics-III practices,
- Training of human resources in cognitive and emotional terms and raising individual awareness,
- Raising awareness of customers and suppliers.
Within the framework of these goals and programs, our senior management has developed universal and popular strategies covering various supply chain applications, freight distribution, waste management, transportation, energy and logistics, and environmental impacts.
In this context, ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System standard requirements published by the International Standards Organization (ISO) are effectively implemented and its sustainability is monitored.
Contributing to the nature at utmost level with limitless cooperation with our customers, suppliers and employees signifies our love for the nature. This is because “Nature is Protected by Love”
