Shipco expands Far East/Turkey services
Non-vessel-operating common carrier Shipco Transport has expanded its number of new direct services from the Far East to Turkey.
The services link several Asia key origins — Shanghai, Shenzhen, Qingdao and Busan — to markets in the eastern Mediterranean.
Shipco expects its services to and from Turkey will be expanded further in the coming months with introduction of more direct services. Turkey has a strong domestic market but also holds a large potential as a gateway location to the Black Sea.
'Services linking Georgia, Romania, Russia (Novorussiysk) and Ukraine to the Shipco network via Istanbul are currently being studied and will be launched during the first half of 2011,' the company said.
Shipco is a subsidiary of Scan-Group, an international shipping and transportation company based in Copenhagen, with more than 100 offices and some 2,200 employees worldwide.
