New dedicated Turkey service

Turkey is a major market for UK exporters and sourcing region for manufacturers and brands, increasingly so as near-shoring becomes more prevalent. Trade between the UK and Turkey is already worth £15bn, leaping almost 15% in 2019, making a post-Brexit trade deal a priority for both.

The new dedicated road freight service launched by Metro with long-term partner Miran provides choices of transit times, routes and service – including environmentally options – to ensure that you get your product delivered on time, at the best price, every time.

Cargo is received at UK and Turkish freight centres continuously, for three groupage departures each week, with booking cut-off just 24 hours before departure.

From receipt, through to delivery, consignments are trackable on the Metro MVT platform and operations teams are ready to expedite clearance and transport consignments to destinations without delay.

The 100+M3 volumes offered by Miran’s trailers, combined with the option of a sea freight leg between Turkey and Northern Europe, cut road miles by over 50%, offering a significant cut in CO2 emissions per M3.

  • Groupage, full load and express road services
  • 13.6M trailers with over 100m3 of space
  • 100 dedicated curtain-sided trailers

The groupage service is unbeatable for consolidating your smaller consignments of cartons and pallets together for economical transport to and from Turkey.

The 13.6M – 100+M3 volume – tilt-sided trailers handle the biggest full load requirements.

For ultra-heavy and outsize cargo we can position specialist equipment and, when appropriate, offer a total project-shipping service.

Specialised equipment is also available for temperature sensitive products and hanging garments.
