United Arab Shipping Company (UASC) has opened an office in Turkey as of Oct. 1.
The agency, United Arab Shipping Agency Co. Denizcilik Nakliyat A.Ş. (UASAC Turkey), is a joint venture between UASC and its two agents in the country, Fevzi Gandur Denizcilik A.Ş and Mitaş Uluslararası Nakliyat ve Gemi Acenteliği Ltd.

“The Turkish market will witness the direct benefits of this new venture notably through the added value of UASC’s global network of services, offering continuously improved port coverage, fast and reliable shipping services with some of the best transit times and cost competitive edge on the market,” the line said in a statement.
