Growth for DHL Freight in Turkey traffic

Groupage cargo traffic by DHL Freight from Graz-Kalsdorf to Turkey showing upward trend

DHL Freight Austria is registering strong increases in its groupage cargo traffic from Kalsdorf near Graz to Turkey. Their location in Istanbul is used as a hub for the handling of general cargo services from Europe (with their point of collection in Kalsdorf) to Syria, Lebanon, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Oman. Also freight volumes going to and coming from the Turkish market show a strong growing tendency. Branch Manager Heike Sommer is in good spirits when talking to the Österreichische Verkehrszeitung (Austrian Transport Magazine), “regarding the expansion of the Istanbul route that is currently served with a groupage cargo transport once per week”.
