Integration of 3S boosts Gebrüder Weiss on the Middle Corridor

[ December 5, 2022   //   ]

Austrian forwarding and logistics company Gebrüder Weiss says it will offer increase focus on the Turkish market with the full integration of recently-acquired freight forwarding company 3S Transport and  Logistics in early December.

With the country showing growing appeal to European importers and exporters, the main focus will be on transport between Türkiye (Turkey) and its key trading partner, Germany, as well as the Benelux countries.

Director and regional manager for the Black Sea and CIS, Thomas Moser, said: “The demand for transport on the Middle Corridor route is steadily increasing. Due to the increased transit volume, Türkiye is gaining further importance as a central logistics hub between Europe and Asia.”

The Middle Corridor refers to the route between Europe through Türkiye, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan to China, providing an alternative route to the Northern Corridor, via Russia.

Country manager for Gebrüder Weiss Türkiye, Mişel Yakop, adds: “Thanks to the fully integrated additional capacities of 3S Transport and Logistics, we are well prepared for this development. We are pleased that, as the transition period comes to an end, the rebranding process has reached a successful conclusion.

The 3s location in Istanbul and Düsseldorf have been integrated into the Gebrüder Weiss organization, the latter acting as a centre of competence for transport between Türkiye and Germany as well as the Benelux countries.
