Pegasus continues logistics education program in Izmir

IZMIR: May 06, 2016. Pegasus Cargo is continuing its logistics student education program with the hosting of its first industry conference in Izmir, Turkey October 12-13.

As with the five previous events, the airline is partnering with a university - in this case Dokuz Eylul University’s Maritime Faculty Department of Logistics Management.

Speakers will include executives from the aviation, international logistics & transportation sectors as well as other service providers according to organizing impresario and Pegasus vice president Cargo Aydin Alpa: “Through these events we have the opportunity to bring together the real life know-how of the sector professionals with students who will be the logistics professionals of the future.

AA IZMIR“While we share our valuable experiences with a view to prepare our students for the world of business, we also gain useful feedback from them about the new generation’s perceptions of international logistics and transportation,” he added.

Alpa, with Prof. Dr. Okan Tuna, faculty head of the Department of Logistics Management (left of picture), and Prof. Dr. A. Güldem Cerit, dean of the university’s Maritime Faculty (center), together will host the event in Turkey’s Aegean gateway where APM Terminals has just opened its new container and deep-water terminal.

In February 2013 APM and Turkish petrochemical company Petkim agreed to construct its Izmir facility that will become the country’s third-largest container port after Ambarli, Istanbul and Mersin in southern Turkey.

The port is expected to contribute significantly to the Turkish government’s plans to increase the country’s exports to US$500 billion annually and nearly double container volume to 22 million TEUs by 2025.

In a briefing published at the end of April, the World Bank says Turkey’s GDP grew 4.0 percent last year reflecting stronger private and public consumption, but is expected to slow to 3.5 percent in 2016.

Last year Pegasus Cargo, which optimizes the bulk-loading of B737-800 aircraft serving 97 destinations in 38 countries, increased its airfreight uplift 17 percent to 11.7 thousand tonnes.
