Turkish 3PL Ekol Logistics is to launch its intermodal Nordic operations from Sweden.
“Ekol Nordics will offer international FTL, LTL and groupage transport. At the beginning, we will connect Nordic countries with Turkey, Middle East and other countries where Ekol has its own companies. The next stage will be to have connections with the whole Europe,” said Jarmo Halonen, Regional Director of Ekol Nordics.
Early focus will be on the retail, automotive, electronics, paper and wood sectors. Ekol Nordics is also planning to start short sea services to and from the Mediterranean region in the second half of 2018.
“We start with our office in the Nordics in Gothenburg, Sweden, from where we can support the whole Nordic market development. In the next 2 years we aim to have 30 employees and our target is to reach €30 mil yearly turnover by the end of 2020,” added Halonen.
