The main objective of BALO is to increase the competitiveness of industrialists by providing logistical advantages.

'Foreign partnership will bring BALO closer to its goals'
Hakan Çınar, the academician and logistics expert, also evaluated the increasing foreign interest in BALO: ve BALO, which was founded with the participation of TOBB in the 2011 and continued as a partner of UTIKAD, was is a very important formation for our country. We need some more time and cooperation and partnerships to reach the desired level and volume. Looking at this aspect, I believe that a possible partnership model will benefit. However, I believe that such a model should be developed as a model of mutual cooperation, not only for fundraising, but also for added value. Otherwise, BALO's one-way and wings need to create volume in a broken way, which prevents its development. The existence of an absolute partnership, partnership or close cooperation; however, I think that the decision-maker should remain in the hands of BALO. ancak
