Kita opens truck operation in Iraq
Kita Logistics is first Turkish logistics company in country
Kita Logisitics has become the first Turkish logistics company providing trucking and logistics services in the country.
Its office and distribution centre in Erbil will coordinate groupage and full loads coming into the country with its fleet of more than a 100 trucks.
The company has also added that project cargo or container loads going through North Iraq can be transhipped via hubs in Mersin or Iskenderun before being sent directly to the final destinations in the country.
"We have performed many successful projects between Europe and Turkey. Nowadays, we see a significant increase in the business volumes and logistics activities on the Middle East and CIS destinations, specifically in power, oil and gas sectors,” said Kita Logistics general manager Emre Eldener. “We believe the market development in those regions will continue. Therefore, we have decided to open our own office in North Iraq and have started our activities in combination with our head office in Istanbul."
