We, as Turkish Cargo, came together with our agents at our traditional annual iftar dinner. Organized at Crowne Plaza, the organization was started with keynote speeches delivered by Mr. Turhan ÖZEN, Chief Cargo Officer, and Mr. Şeref KAZANCI, SVP, Turkish Cargo, and approximately 250 representatives from around 150 agents attended the dinner organization.

Underlying the meetings and workshop organized with the agents and management of UTIKAD (Association of International Forwarding and Logistics Service Providers), the representative of the industry, in order to satisfy the overall requests and expectations arising across the industry, Mr. ÖZEN said that a high number of projects have been carried out, most of which yielded good results, in order to carry the level of service, provided by Turkish Cargo to the agents, and consequently, by the agents to their customers, and that some of these projects are still ongoing.

Besides mentioning about the fleet structure following the projects to increase the level of service, Mr. ÖZEN announced that three freighters were included in the fleet since the beginning of this year, and that the fourth one (B474) would be purchased before the religious festival in the upcoming days. He also informed the attendants that following inclusion of two B777 Freighters in the fleet by the end of this year, the capacity would increase by 20%.

Mr. ÖZEN underlined that sales volume for the first 5 months of this year was increased by 25.5% on year-on-year basis with the valuable contributions of the agents, and extended his thanks to all business partners for their contributions.

Turning into a productive organization thanks to face-to-face meetings with our agents, adding contributions to the brand of Turkish Cargo, the organization was ended following live classical Ottoman music performance.
