Construction works of Konya Logistics Village, on which the foundation of Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım laid, were continuing on August 19, 2017.
Konya Kayacık Logistics Village, which will make a great contribution to the economy of Konya, continues without slowing down. Logistics Association (LODER) President Professor Doctor Mehmet Tanyaş and Anadolu Aslanları Businessmen Association (ASKON) Konya President Yakup Yıldırım gave information about the project.
COVER THE ECONOMY
Stressing that logistic villages are very important, Tanyaş said, “Logistic villages are a clustering structure where all logistics related elements are combined and logistics services are taken together. So it's something that reduces costs and makes it easier to use the codes of each of the transport modules. Therefore, the Logistic Village Project is an area with a highway connection that is a railroad in the concept of logistics village, customs, warehouses, anthropor, that is, where all the logistic concepts we count together are combined, and where the industrialist can use all these elements together and import more. As you know, one of Turkey's most important industrial city of Konya Organized Industrial Zone. Industrial city means a city that draws and produces loads. Konya needed a Logistics Village. I also wrote a report to Konya MÜSİAD in the preparation of that project. So it is extremely important. This project will increase our storage quality, increase our transportation quality and increase our connection to other provinces. It was a much needed project. It is very pleasing and auspicious work for TCDD to take this into the program and start the investment. In that sense, a necessary job has been fulfilled. I see it as a very appropriate development. ”
KONYA is one of the best cities in this area
Turkey is a developing country export-oriented, there is no other way. Turkey has to increase exports and would have to increase the export value per kilogram. In other words, it has to make technological products such as mobile phones. I think Konya is one of the good cities in this field with its machine industry power in this sense. Therefore, in order to support the Konya industry, the Public - Private - Municipal system must act jointly. With good promotion and marketing and a good operation, they will have a very important contribution. ”
“CONTAINER TRANSPORTATION WILL BE DONE”
The chairman of ASKON Konya, Yakup Yıldırım, emphasized that the Logistics Village will become Konya's center of trade and emphasized that the Logistics Center is important for both Konya and our country. Yıldırım said that with the project, the geographical advantages of Konya will be revealed more. In this regard, the center built in our city is very important. In terms of location, our Logistics Center is adjacent to the airport. Our Air and Railways will be integrated thanks to the logistics center. When the Logistics Center is completed in the coming years, it will also connect Organized Industrial Zones. In this way, container transportation can be made over these lines. Container transportation is important for companies that produce first degree. Ankara - Istanbul - Eskişehir High Speed Train lines and Kayseri Aksaray Seydişehir Antalya Konya Karaman Ulukışla Mersin lines will be completed in the coming years. Konya logistics center will create a great carrier-leading value in Konya's economy, production, foreign trade and export business. In this sense, logistics center is important in our country within our city. In terms of both air and rail transport, I think it will pave the way for investors who will come to our city when it is completed integrated in the coming years. ” spoke in the form.
