The Turkish economy has been strengthening over the past few years. As such, people who live in Turkey have been demanding bigger and better houses and more sophisticated technology. This has led to a demand in imports in Turkey for raw materials for construction, technology items, clothing, household furniture and goods, and so on.
Shipping UK manufactured goods to Turkey has become big business; Turkey has become a leading source for exports from the UK. Istanbul’s high street is now lined with shops such as Marks and Spencer and Next. It is the perfect time for the UK’s economy to cash in on Turkey’s construction and economic boom.
Mercator Cargo is an independent freight forwarder and over the past couple of years we have seen a big increase in shipping to Turkey services, in particular sea freight, where it is more cost effective to ship large amounts of goods (as opposed to air freight services).

Also, by using a freight forwarder you are going to avoid simple mistakes which could end up quite costly to you and your business. It is a simple decision to instruct a freight forwarder who will handle all elements of your shipping to Turkey.
