Port services in ports of Turkey, Europe and CIS countries.

Cargo transshipment is the transfer of goods from one mode of transport to another or from one conveyance to another.

When transporting goods from Turkey, Egypt, Europe, and CIS countries, port transshipment becomes an integral component of the supply chain, especially when water transport is predominantly involved.

Cargo transshipment in ports is executed in two main ways:

  1. Direct Cargo Transshipment:
    • Involves direct transfer from one mode of transport to another without the use of a warehouse.
    • Various goods are transshipped using schemes such as “railway cars – ship/container,” “container/ship – railway cars,” “vehicle – ship/container,” “container/ship-vehicle,” “vehicle – railway cars,” “railway cars – vehicle,” and “line container – railway container.”
    • Typically employed for small shipments.
  2. Warehouse Terminal Transshipment:
    • Cargo is temporarily stored in warehouse terminals before loading.
    • Terminals operated by our agents are strategically located in proximity to loading/unloading areas, ensuring swift and cost-effective operations.

In addition to transshipment, Simplextrans offers various additional services at ports:

  • Rail and road cargo delivery to the port of shipment.
