Creates daily shipping
In the period of global epidemic, where business continuity gains even more importance, the daily shipment opportunity created by rail transport stands out as a strong advantage.

In addition; rail transport facilitates faster and uninterrupted delivery of shipments such as products and raw materials to factories and customers. Adopting customer satisfaction and high service quality as the focus of their work, Şişecam Flat Glass continues to take steps towards perfection in this target with more innovative applications day by day.
