Chairman Soyer said, “Logistics is one of the fastest growing sectors in the world. For this reason, it is our primary priority to increase the share of İzmir, which is a natural logistics geography, from this sector. Throughout history, Izmir has served as a heart, expanding the cultural and economic relations between Europe and Asia. It has become one of the biggest trade centers of the Mediterranean with its port and wide hinterland starting from the Gulf and extending to the entire Aegean and Western Anatolia. İzmir still maintains its value for the logistics industry with its 4,5 million population, the fact that it is only three hours away by direct flights to the important points of the world, and its numerous ports.
“It will strengthen the position of Izmir”
Stating that the "One Belt One Road Project" carried out under the leadership of China and other global developments constitute the rational basis for this excitement, Chairman Soyer continued his words as follows: “The logistics center to be established in Kemalpaşa will function as a very important supply point between the Aegean Region and our port. Izmir Metropolitan Municipality is working meticulously on the approach roads, including the rail system, in order to make this center more functional. For these reasons, we highly value the relationship between Izmir and the logistics industry. Logistech – Logistics Storage and Technologies Fair is undoubtedly a very important step towards our goal of increasing the welfare of İzmir. Our fair will bring together the national and international logistics sector and will further strengthen the position of İzmir in this regard.”
