This increased demand for project logistics services has spurred one organisation in particular, Agir Nakliyeciler Dernegi (AND), to take action to ensure problems affecting companies active in the sector are resolved. AND, founded in November 2016 by 13 leading heavy haulage companies, seeks the “removal of all legal and infrastructural obstacles faced by heavy haulage on a national and international level, so as to enable its members to develop more efficient and effective logistics operations”. AND also offers advice, documentation and training opportunities to its members. Hasret Dal, logistics project coordinator

providers must overcome.


Some of the issues relate to vehicle registration and permission documents. “In order to transport cargo correctly, the vehicle must receive several permissions, including empty transport permission to go to the loading address, permission for the transport itself, and also empty return permission,” said Dal.


Should a logistics provider want to use a more unconventional trailer formation, for example, “a hydraulic trailer used with the draw bar attachment, or a semi-trailer used with the gooseneck attachment”, it can be difficult to categorise these arrangements on vehicle registration documents, said Dal. Vehicles need to be classified as trailers or semi-trailers, and when they do not fit in those categories, “they may not pass the TÜV-TÜRK examination – a motor vehicle inspection”.


We are permitted to offer a massively limited number of transport solutions on Turkish roads, so we need a minor revolution in the Turkish heavy haulage industry. – Seyfi Karli, Karun Makina


Unsuitable roads


Samet Gürsu, board member and vice-president of AND, said: “Heavy haulage trucks with permits are not able to transport cargo on highways and the authorities divert them to public roads. These public roads are narrow, with only two lanes. It would be easier if trucks were permitted on highways, which have three or four lanes.
