Imperial signs Istanbul deal

[ April 2, 2020   //   ]

Logistics company Imperial has signed a partnership with Turkish freight forwarder M Ekspres (MEX), to create a multi-modal freight management business housed within Imperial’s freight management capability. The business will be based in Istanbul and will provide air- and ocean import and export forwarding services. It also plans to leverage the fast-growing range of global destinations served from Istanbul’s new airport, as a gateway for traffic to the African continent.

MEX was established in 2009 as an international courier company by Turkish forwarding executives Mehmet Baykut and Oktay Baykut, who had previously built the country’s second-largest IATA forwarder which was subsequently sold to Toll Global Forwarding.
