The international transport and logistics service provider Gebrüder Weiss is taking over Istanbul-based 3S Transport & Logistics with effect from January 1, 2022.
The Turkish forwarding company specializes in partial load transports between Turkey and its key trading partner Germany.
With this step Gebrüder Weiss Turkey doubles its transport volume and positioning itself as a top player for transports with Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
The takeover also means that 22 employees of 3S Transport & Logistics will move under the umbrella of Gebrüder Weiss Turkey.
“3S Transport & Logistics is a logistics service provider that has been firmly established on the Turkish transport market for many years and that we are now going to integrate into our organization,” explains Thomas Moser, Director and Regional Manager Black Sea/CIS at Gebrüder Weiss.
“This will strengthen the position of our location in Istanbul as a strategic anchor, linking Europe and Asia and the New Silk Road”.
“Our customers will have the benefit of access to a much broader range of services, and our employees have new prospects for the future,” say Ilhami Seval and Sehel Zenbil, the two former Managing Directors of 3S Transport & Logistics.
Both will be on hand to support Gebrüder Weiss Turkey as consultants during the integration process.
The takeover also includes an operational location in the Düsseldorf area with seven employees.
“For Gebrüder Weiss in Turkey, this is an important step for our growth, and it is strengthening our service portfolio. We are looking forward to the cooperation,” adds Mişel Yakop, Country Manager Gebrüder Weiss Turkey.
