MATERIALS HANDLING EURASIA Turkey set to become attractive logistics location The logistics market in Turkey is developing into an attractive location for international investors. According to estimations by the Turkish logistics association, Loder Lojistik Dernegi, the Turkish logistic sector is currently worth USD 80-100 billion and is expected to increase to USD 108-140 billion by 2017. With an average economic growth of 5%, rapidly expanding foreign trade and favorable geographical location providing the West with an economic gateway to the Middle East and Asia, Turkey has become an attractive investment location. In view of the positive economic development and associated opportunities as a logistic location and gateway between Asia and Europe, Materials Handling Eurasia, the leading international trade fair for the logistics and intralogistics industry, will be held as part of the WIN - World of Industry event in Turkey from March 19 to 22, 2015. The main focus of the trade fair will include conveyor technology, material handling technology, warehouse technology, and logistics. The events organized in parallel to WIN - World of Industry will focus on topics such as hydraulics and pneumatics, electrical engineering, drive technology, automation, material handling, industrial goods, environmental technology, energy management and measurement technology. The WIN – World of Industry is being organized by Hannover Messe International Istanbul, a subsidiary of Deutschen Messe AG. Strong growth expected in e-commerce sector One of the exhibitors at Materials Handling Eurasia will be Jungheinrich, who are using the trade fair to gain a wider audience in the logistic sector.

This positive development in the supply chain segment is particularly driven by the young generation in Turkey, that is consumption and digitally orientated and has a growing disposable income. According to a study by Jones Lang LaSalle, Turkey is set to become the fastest growing market in the logistic sector with a forecast growth of up to 48 % over the next five years. “A lot of logistic service providers want to expand their activities in Turkey,” states Karolyi. Especially, the cities of Istanbul and Kocaeli, in the north west of the country, should benefit from the boom. Interroll has already been represented with its own company in Istanbul since 2010 from where it provides its full range of products and services, including customer services for Turkey and the Middle East. This year, Interroll will, amongst other things, be presenting its new modular conveying platform at WIN – Materials Handling Eurasia. “We have been attending WIN - World of Industry in Istanbul for a while now,” says Emre Yenal, Sales Director for Turkey for the warehouse technology provider, Kardex Remstar. “Existing and potential customers at the trade fair will not only have the chance to talk to our sales team, but will also be able to test our products and solutions in live operation.” In Turkey, industry-specific trade fairs are generally highly rated. This is why Kardex Remstar, is hoping to increase its leads at Materials Handling Eurasia. Photos: viastore systems, Fotolia/processing: VFV Grafik f+h Intralogistics 1/2015 9
