Lödige In­dus­tries equips Turk­ish Cargo ter­mi­nal

Lödige In­dus­tries has been se­lected to sup­ply a new fully au­to­matic ter­mi­nal with state-of-the-art tech­nol­ogy to Turk­ish Cargo.

When com­pleted, the ter­mi­nal will have a han­dling ca­pac­ity of two mil­lion tons per year and a to­tal area of 300,000m2.

The equip­ment of the new cargo ter­mi­nal will in­clude au­to­mated high-bay ware­houses with 17,000 stor­age bins, 30 stack­ing cranes, 15 lifters and an in­te­grated ware­house man­age­ment sys­tem (Lödige Cargo Pro­fes­sional) with a di­rect in­ter­face to the cus­tomer and freight man­age­ment sys­tems.

Freight han­dling for per­ish­able goods, ex­cess lug­gage, ex­press lug­gage, do­mes­tic freight and gen­eral cargo will take place on two lev­els.

The cargo ter­mi­nal will be main­tained on site by a lo­cal Lödige In­dus­tries ser­vice team and will also be con­nected to the Lödige Cus­tomer Care Cen­tre in Ger­many, which will be able to quickly rem­edy sys­tem er­rors 24/7.

“We are proud to have con­tributed to the cre­ation of this flag­ship project and our selec­tion by Turk­ish Cargo for this new mega-hub is tes­ta­ment to our engineerin­g and au­to­ma­tion ex­per­tise as well as our rich ex­pe­ri­ence in air cargo ter­mi­nals,” said Philippe De Backer, CEO of Lödige In­dus­tries.

“The new state-of-the-art ter­mi­nal will place us in an ex­cel­lent po­si­tion for fu­ture growth,” added Turhan Özen, chief cargo of­fi­cer at Turk­ish Cargo. “In Lödige In­dus­tries, we have se­lected a part­ner that has en­riched the project with in­no­va­tive so­lu­tions to our spe­cific re­quire­ments. We have found them to be both flex­i­ble and cost-sen­si­tive, which is al­ways a bonus with such large scale projects.”
