Turkish Cargo has received QEP Accreditation from Envirotainer at its Istanbul Atatürk Airport (IST) hub, as well as five other airports across its network: Mumbai (BOM), Hyderabad (HYD), Frankfurt (FRA), Tel Aviv (TLV) and Seoul (ICN). The accreditation bolsters the carrier’s efforts to not only grow its surging general cargo – up a staggering 39.5 percent, year-over-year, in June 2017 – but also attract more high-value pharma traffic, which chief cargo officer Turhan Ozen said, “addresses decreasing yields in the industry.”
While Turkish Cargo only has six QEP-accredited stations, compared to, say, Emirates SkyCargo, which has 68, two of Turkish’s stations are designated as “QEP Expert Stations” meaning that they are also GDP- or CEIV-certified, have dedicated 15°C to 25°C storage and handle more than 15 Envirotainer containers per month.
