The logistics sector, which is of utmost importance in the development of regional cooperation, stands like a diamond in the rough among all sectors of the country. Just like the Turkey’s standing on the world map."

However, the recent tensions between Russia and Ukraine, fluctuations in exchange rates, problems at our border gates, and the expectation of a recession show us that we must use this position correctly. We should strengthen our fleets and support new market entrants. Efforts should be made to increase combined transportation."
