The Turkish-German logistics network is presenting its intermodal Industry Solutions at Europe’s leading chemical logistics event.
From September 8 to 11, logistics managers from the world’s leading chemical companies and supply chain experts will meet for the first time in purely virtual form to discuss the future design of the chemical supply chain in interactive sessions. In view of the current situation, the focus will be on concepts for contingency planning. Cobantur Boltas will present its solutions for resilient supply chains. “During the crisis, our intermodal rail transports have proven to be much more resilient in cross-border traffic compared to pure land transport”, says Iskender Cobanoglu, member of the Board of Directors at Cobantur Boltas and adds, “that is why we are further expanding our offer of regional multimodal supply chains”. At the four-day event, more than 300 chemical supply chain leaders will meet virtually and exchange valuable insights in around 40 sessions.

The economy in Greece has started up again on Monday, May 4th, taking into account distance and hygiene requirements. Together with our cooperation partner Omonia Trans, we are increasing our weekly groupage departures. Further our intermodal routes to Greece offer a reliable alternative to regular overland transports.
Transports to and from Turkey – lifted quarantine measures Since last week, the Turkish government has partially lifted the quarantine measures for drivers returning from the EU. As a result, we are already feeling further improvement in the availability of truck capacities. Together with our intermodal units, we can therefore offer the entire range of our transport-route mix.
Turkey – special customs tariffs on various goods To protect its economy, Turkey temporarily imposes special tariffs on various goods. The special duties apply from April 20, 2020 to September 30, 2020. Goods originating in the EU are not fully affected.
The European-Iranian traffic has come to a complete standstill due to the closure of the Turkish-Iranian border crossing at Gürbulak / Bazargan with no short term solutions in sight. In order to be able to continue offering transports to Iran, we have added the intermodal transport of 20 ‚and 40‘ containers by road and rail to Tabriz and Tehran to our service. Please contact us for further details. Transports to and from Turkey – Restrictions on capacities. Due to the fasting month of Ramadan, the departure frequencies on the ferry and train connections to and from Turkey will be reduced in the next few weeks. This can occasionally lead to delays in the transport process. We react flexibly and, if necessary, switch to other options in our processing mix. Should your shipments be affected by delays, we will inform customers directly. Please contact us for further details.
We wish all Muslim people a blessed and healthy Ramadan!
