HISTORY

1986

Karınca Logistics was established in 1986 at Istanbul. It started out by providing customs clearance services, and soon after launched its international transportation services by investing in road freight. Karınca Logistics has always been proud to ‘shoulder the goods and burdens’ of its clients, thanks to its strong and reliable workforce.

2000

Karınca Logistics, a sector-specific solution provider, internalized the importance of HSSE (health, safety, environment, and security) and began transportation of dangerous goods with this in mind. Karınca Logistics has been carrying all your ‘goods and burdens’ with a “zero mistake, zero accident” principle for 30 years. Additionally, thanks to the experience gained from transportation of dangerous goods and its high HSSE conscious staff, Karınca Logistics also started providing logistics services for sea and land oil exploration projects of several energy firms.

2003

Strengthened by its diverse client portfolio (national and multi-national), Karınca Logistics also launched domestic logistics services across Turkey. Karınca Logistics adopted a sector-specific management system to better understand the needs of its clients. Karınca Logistics is able to provide special solutions based on clients and their specific needs. Through the acquisition of a foreign company, Karınca Logistics was able to add the footwear and textile sectors and provide warehousing and distribution services in these sectors as well.

2010

Branching out in Mersin area, Karınca Logistics also started transportation services for mining and construction sectors across Turkey providing port evacuation, handling and rail freight.
