Borusan Logistics General Manager Atilla Yıldıztekin stated that exhibition logistics is a work requiring a high amount of conscious responsibility;
“At fairs it is of the utmost importance that the products of the participating companies are delivered to the exhibition area in a timely, complete and damage-free manner. For this reason, the logistics services for fairs all over the world are now provided by companies with high professionalism. We are delighted to be serving all the participants and fair organizers at the “Bilişim ‘01 A Cebit Event” with the principle of fulfilling their work in a faster, more economical and quality manner.
Borusan Logistics also acted as logistics product and service sponsor at last year’s Bilişim 2000. Meanwhile, it was the logistics service company for the Istanbul Fair held from May 2-6, 2001, organized by the Building Industry Center.
Borusan Logistics was established in 1999 following the merger of Boru Nakliyat, Bortrans and Borusan Dağıtım operating in the fields of customs transportation, port operations and storage under the same structure. With the opening of its second pier in 2000, Borusan Logistics’ total pier length reached 850m. A $7 million investment was made for the construction of the second pier. With the new pier, Borusan Logistics’ Gemlik facility reached a handling capacity of 2,700,000 tons of conventional cargo and 100,000 containers a year. This means that the capacity of the facility increased by 2.5 times. Borusan Logistics’ mission is to provide integrated logistics services to its customers, fulfill their work faster, more economically and at a higher quality on their behalf, and create added value.
