Smartist: a global hub for DHL
DHL Global Forwarding is extending its operations to Smartist, Turkish Cargo’s cargo hub at Istanbul Airport. The two logistics companies have implemented a memorandum of understanding to this effect. DHL will now leverage the mega cargo facility as one of its global hubs, which will significantly increase air cargo traffic handled via Istanbul, DHL said.
Turkish Cargo's intercontinental air cargo network combined with the country’s geographical advantages will enable Turkish Cargo to support DHL with a vast specialised knowledge and advanced operational capabilities.
Spanning the European and Asian continents, Turkey is geographically well-positioned to act as a logistics hub for Europe, Asia as well as the MEA region and USA.
The long-lasting partnership with Turkish Cargo, which not only provides DHL with reliable air cargo capacity, but also state-of-the-art logistics infrastructure to handling air freight, DHL said. (ben)
