Another important point is for our business activity in Turkey
Regarding our business activity , As of 1st of July 2019, the Ministry of Transport made it compulsory to obtain accreditation. As per Ministry all, freight forwarders should be accredited , otherwise there are severe penalties.
For example, if a Freight Forwarder operates without licence, they will have to pay TL 15,000.- per each transaction they make (each invoice), which would amount to Hundreds of Thousands of USD and would probably cause bankrupt of many Freight Forwarders. This could affect Marcopololine agents cooperating with unlicensed Freight Forwarders in Turkey.
We as MARE have already obtained our accreditation as well
