Türkiye -Transportation with LIFA Logistics

Our forwarding agency offers

Türkiye -Transportation

of all kinds

Do you need transport within, from or to Turkey that is characterized by reliability, speed and the highest quality? Our forwarding company LIFA LOGISTICS is a leader in the provision of efficient and punctual truck transportation. Our modern fleet and large network ensure safe and reliable deliveries. Our employees speak German, English, Polish, Croatian, Russian, Italian, Spanish and Turkish.

In order to successfully transport goods to Turkey, it is crucial to be familiar with the local handling modalities and cultural customs. Only through this understanding can a smooth handling of the transportation process be ensured. Our many years of experience and local branches enable us to coordinate in the local language and ensure that your deliveries reach their destination reliably.

Through our own branches in Turkey, we continuously maintain the information chain with the importer and its customs clearance agents. In addition to the usual customs clearance process, in which the goods are unloaded in the customs warehouse, we also offer the option of so-called Supalan customs clearance. Customs clearance is carried out directly on the vehicle in the bonded warehouse without the goods being unloaded, which generally results in faster customs clearance. This requires special permits, which the importer must have, and only the importer’s goods may be on the vehicle.

Customs information

Due to the fact that Turkey is considered an EU third country, it is necessary that the goods are made available in a customs warehouse where the importer carries out the relevant customs clearance procedures. After this step, transportation is usually carried out by the importer to the final recipient. On request, we can also organize the onward carriage for you.

We can also carry out transports from Turkey to the EU for you. After loading at the exporter’s premises, the goods are cleared through customs at the customs office and a T1 is issued. In order to carry out the subsequent import clearance for you, we need the customs agent who will clear the goods through customs in the respective country. Thanks to our many years of experience, you can also have import clearance handled by LIFA. Delivery to the customs warehouse is not necessary, as import clearance is usually carried out at the national border.
