Industry: Transportation & Logistics

10 years later, LP Turkey remains one of the company’s fastest growing divisions.

Erie, PA (PRUnderground) September 4th, 2019

Logistics Plus Inc. (LP), a leading worldwide provider of transportation, logistics and supply chain solutions, is proud to celebrate its 10th year of business operating in Turkey.

In 2009, Logistics Plus established its first Turkey office in Mersin (a Mediterranean seaport city); then offices were opened in Istanbul in 2010, in Izmir in 2012, and Ankra in 2014. In 2010, one year after its opening, Turkey was chosen to host the company’s first-ever global meeting for Logistics Plus representatives from more than a dozen other countries around the world. When asked why, Founder and CEO Jim Berlin said, “It’s not always about the United States. Turkey is something of a crossroads for the world, where West meets East, and it is also a beautiful country.”

Turkey has an advantageous position between Europe and Asia, giving it an important transit function. Much of the country is like a giant peninsula and it is very easy to reach by ship – both from the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. Most transports are done via sea or road. Under the leadership of Managing Director Bahadir Erdil (also Global Projects Director for all of Logistics Plus), and Operations Manager Basar Kandl, LP Turkey provides compete services for heavy-lift, break bulk, and large-scale project cargo. Hundreds of cargo projects have been safely and successfully transported by LP Turkey, including brewery tanks, boilers, castings, cranes, drilling rigs, fire engines, gearboxes, girder bridges, wind mills, stators, storage tanks, transformers, tubes, tugboats, wagons, and much more!

“As Logistics Plus celebrates its 23rd year of business in 2019, all of us here at LP Turkey are proud to have been a part of the Logistics Plus global network these past 10 years,” said Bahadir. “As the company’s eastern European project cargo experts, we look forward to many more years of service to our customers around the world.”

As part of its celebration, LP Turkey recently hosted a global meeting for Logistics Plus project cargo executives from around the world. This YouTube video includes some brief interviews from the meeting.
