Transportation& Logistics

Turkey’s transportation and logistics sector is one of the country’s fastest-growing industries, with an annual growth of about 20%. This growth, combined with Turkey’s strategic location as a bridge between East and West, is creating new opportunities for Canadian exporters of transportation and intelligent technologies. Turkey is not only a major transit hub but also a key freight destination.

Given Turkey’s large and growing population (over 80 million) and inward migration to larger cities from rural areas, traffic has become a key issue, compelling local municipalities to invest heavily in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). As a result, Turkey has doubled its transportation industry investment budget over the last decade. The influence of the transportation sector is expected to further increase in the future, as many highway, air, rail and, marine transportation-related projects are launched.
