Jöbstl East and Mars Air&Sea shine at Turkey project

Jöbstl East GmbH (Munich) and the Turkish logistics provider Mars Air & Sea (Istanbul) have successfully completed a transport project with a total volume of 3,500 tonnes for a Turkish group. The heavy cargo shipments (including colli over 570 centimeters high or up to 490 centimeters wide and individual weights of more than 125 tonnes) were transported in mutual cooperation.

The transport handling from various loading points in Germany and in Austria had police escort, which is standard for transports in Germany from a width of 550 centimeters. Heavy transport inspection by Dekra at some loading points was necessary.

Starting from the loading points in Germany and Austria, the next inland port was approached by means of special truck transport (oblique loader, 4-axle triple trailer, 6-axle Variomax, vessel bridge vehicles, 10-axle semi-low loader, etc.). Since some colli were 610 centimeters high, several route changes and detours were required, including disassembly and remounting of various traffic lights or traffic facilities.

“With our service concept we were able to distinguish ourselves from various multinational corporations and show our competence in handling such projects. Moreover we use the optimal combination of road, rail and water to transport the goods in an environmentally friendly manner,” said Angelika Fischer, Managing Director at Jöbstl East GmbH, and Ahmet Yüksek, Projects Heavy Cargo Mars Turkey Director.

Jöbstl East organised the transport logistics from the loading points in Western Europe to the respective inland port as well as the forwarding to Antwerp. From Antwerp, Mars Air & Sea took over. Their range of services also included the oncarriage from the port of entry in Turkey to the unloading point in Adana.

Its business activities are diverse and include international transport, warehousing and logistics services, distribution, air and sea freight, insurance services based on its own fleet and modern logistics facilities.
