Your reliable partner for all Turkey shipments
30 May 2023
You know us mainly for sea and air freight to and from Asia. But our range of services and capabilities is much bigger than that. Today we would like to tell you more about how we can help with your transport to and from Turkey. Where do you start, what are the options and who arranges what?
Where do I start?
Curious about the possibilities, but not sure where to start? You don’t have to do it alone. When transporting goods to and from Turkey, it is wise to call on an experienced forwarder. Team Ritra will of course be happy to help. In this respect, good contacts with our agents in Izmir and Istanbul are hugely valuable.
We listen to your wishes and implement them by taking complete care of your road, sea or air freight shipment. Do you need to take actions when importing products from Turkey? For example, making a customs declaration for your import shipment? Then we will gladly take care of that too.
Modalities and possibilities
We have been working with our agencies for a long time. The sea and air freight shipments from Turkey travel to the Netherlands, but also to other destinations such as Australia, New Zealand, the United States, South America and South Africa.
We also provide road transport from Istanbul to the Netherlands using LTL (Less Than Truckload) and FTL (Full Truckload). We see ourselves as an important link between clients and carriers. The fact that our agency also has a Dutch point of contact is a great advantage for all parties involved.
Thanks to our warm relationship with the local agents, we are well aware of what’s going on in Turkey. It goes without saying that this is highly valuable when establishing good agreements with your Turkish suppliers.
One designated Ritra contact person
Naturally, Team Ritra also offers you one permanent contact for all your Turkish shipments. Martin Stigter has been happily handling them for years and during this time has made many contacts. He knows the market well and has been working with our established network for a long time: convenient for Martin and great for you.
Martin ensures that the complete transport from Turkey to any desired final destination, is taken care of. He is involved as from the first moment of ordering to the final delivery, and even after that you can simply turn to him if there are any questions or ambiguities.
Everything 100% visible with TRACOS
Also in this field, you will benefit from our digital cooperation with all parties involved. Ritra’s online platform TRACOS unburdens your supply chain in terms of data exchange via EDI and online PO management.
TRACOS ensures that you can track your import, export or lorry shipment from the loading point to final delivery at the destination, anytime and anywhere. This way you know immediately where you stand. You can also immediately see the CO2 emissions connected to your shipment, to help improve sustainability.
Last year our Turkish agents were trained to work in TRACOS. You can read more about this in the travelogue by Lindsey and Daisy, together the silent force behind ‘Team TRACOS’.
