The logistics sector consists of freight and passenger transportation and storage activities. With the definition of the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), the world’s largest logistics organization, logistics; “It is the process of planning, implementing and supervising the procedures necessary for the effective and efficient transportation and storage of all products and related information, including services, from the point of origin to the destination, in line with the customer’s needs.

Since the logistics sector is among the main cost elements, it is one of the important factors in the competitive performance of sectors and companies. Especially in recent years, with the economic development, the increase in the foreign trade tendencies of the countries and the more complex foreign trade transactions have increased the importance of logistics. In this context, in terms of the continuation of economic activities, countries must have a sustainable domestic and foreign trade system, and this trade must be supported by logistics strategies.


Sudden and permanent changes in raw material transportation and trade; The crises experienced made the critical position of the sector in the global economic wheels even more important. The modernization of infrastructure is more important than ever for the industry for intercontinental production models and commercial networks to operate effectively.


We can show the container crisis as the most critical problem that started last year in the global logistics network. The increase in freight prices, the attitude of countries towards each other over raw materials and the embargoes have also negatively affected international trade.

Turkey continues to have a great potential in the transportation and logistics sector, thanks to both its significant tourism potential and its critical geographical location. Although recent land and airline investments support this potential, structural problems delay the emergence of this potential.
