During the event, several riveting and thought-provoking discussions revolving around the sudden rise of cargo volumes, freight prices and need for a stronger digital infrastructure as well as value chain integration, brought some of the burning issues to limelight. Several other locations as prospects for expansion of the air cargo carrier were also hinted at, such that the network encompasses a significant fraction of the globe, achieving the aspirational target of increased cargo capacity, while materialising its fullest potential to deliver top-notch services.
The Delhi NCR office is located in Building No 10, Tower B, 1st Floor, DLF Cyber City, Phase 2, Gurugram. Firat Sunel, Ambassador of the Republic of Turkey to India was the Chief Guest for the inauguration event alongside S Burak Omeroglu. Top officials and partners from the carrier’s cargo GSA company Interglobe Air Transport were also present on the occasion.
S Burak enlightened the crowd on the impending growth strategies which are touted to further help the carrier achieve the objectives and targets, one of which is to get into the prestigious bracket of the top three air cargo carriers.
Currently, Turkish Cargo is ranked fifth among the top 25 air cargo carriers. It is leveraging the extremely strategic position of Istanbul Airport to enhance, optimise and expand reach, as well as prioritise resources across its portfolio of services. The leading carrier is now aiming to integrate the various geographical locations such that the world goes back, metaphorically, to the primitive state of the joint landmass or single continent- PANGEA.
Turkish Cargo takes pride in its ingenuity and present-mindedness of its workforce effectively applied to deliver nearly 335 million COVID-19 vaccine doses to 61 countries last year. With targets like that, Turkish Cargo is not just a logistics giant but it also stands out as a compassionate and philanthropic entity that puts its resources for welfare of the community.
