Earthquake rattles Turkish ports

Date: 7th February 2023

A number of ports are still out of action in Türkiye more than 24 hours after the southeast of the nation was rocked by a massive earthquake that has killed more than 7,800 people.

Iskenderun, a major port on the Mediterranean, suffered structural damage, as well as a severe blaze as containers caught fire yesterday. Aerial images show box stacks collapsed across the port, and a blaze in the middle of a container yard, which spread fast.

The port has unfortunately been subject to severe structural damage, leading to a complete stop of all operations until further notice. Roads have also been heavily affected, and at this time vendors are not moving any trucks in and around the area.

Elsewhere, pipeline oil flows through the Turkish port of Ceyhan were temporarily suspended as inspections get underway to check the state of the pipelines. Operations at Mersin International Port have also been suspended while inspections take place.

NEOLink cooperated with our order processing system. He did not replace it or force solutions. Logfret did it better than other companies on the market – it adapted its system to ours. Logfret didn’t come to us saying, “We have this solution, and you either use it or we won’t cooperate.

My suppliers have less or zero experience with international logistics. Thus, not able to create proper documentation which leads to tremendous delay. Thanks to Logfret who provide training to all suppliers and work with us to build up a consolidation hub to reduce transportation costs significantly.
