Shippers urge action on Turkey customs duties

[ August 3, 2015   //   ]

The European Shippers’ Council has urged the European Commission to take action to stop Turkey from levying additional customs duties on goods entering from the European Union, which it says violates the customs union signed in 1995. ESC says that Turkey has imposed duties on footwear, textile, chemicals, pharmaceutical products, beef and alcoholic spirits. It adds that the European Commission has not done enough to end the practice.
