Yesterday, Turkish Airlines and the Turkish Exporters Assembly (TIM) signed a cooperation protocol to offer suitable cargo services to exporters. This agreement will add momentum to the country’s foreign sales.
The MoU follows a similar agreement signed by the two sides in December that looked to help rev up the exports and ease access to strategic markets, while also paving the wave for a larger inflow of foreign currency. The “Air Cargo Cooperation Protocol,” signed at the Trade Ministry headquarters in the capital Ankara, will include perishable goods for the first time and is estimated to add approximately $6 billion to the nation’s exports.
The agreement will cover exports to 46 destinations to be shipped by Turkish Cargo, THY's subsidiary, and will offer exporters a discount on shipments of multiple goods from eggs, fresh fruit and vegetables to fish, Trade Minister Mehmet Muş told dailysabah.com.
