British TGP expands network with new Turkey office
The international logistics specialist, Trans Global Projects (TGP), has opened a new office in Istanbul, the company announced in a statement. “With this latest addition to TGP’s global network, we have increased our presence in one of our key regions of the world and I am looking forward to further extending our network in the near future,” Colin Charnock, TGP Group CEO, said.
Founded in 1988, TGP is a subsidiary company of the Trans Global Group, one of the UK’s largest independent, multi-modal transportation organisations. The latest addition to TGP’s global network operates as Trans Global Projects Limited Turkey and offers the entire portfolio of TGP’s services, including project logistics management, ship chartering, aviation logistics, supply chain management, logistics consultancy and procurement. The office will be managed by Murat Aksu, an established business specialist who brings a wealth of experience and expertise, especially in shipping and chartering. “I am delighted to be on board with the TGP group of companies,” Aksu said. “TGP Turkey features an experienced team of industry professionals and together we will offer Turkish and international clients a project forwarding service from, into and through Turkey.”
‘Turkey is strategic’
With its new location, TGP ensures a vital bridge in its global network between its offices in Europe and the Middle East/ Central Asia, its statement noted. “Being a large, thriving economy and geographically strategic, Turkey is an important market for the project logistics industry with numerous projects ongoing or planned. At the same time, Turkish manufacturers supply materials and equipment to construction projects worldwide, while many Turkish EPC contractors execute projects throughout the world. Furthermore, Turkey is a natural transit route for project cargo moving into Iraq, Iran and other countries surrounding the Caspian Sea.”
