Perishables exporter Veysel Tuysuz commented: “In the past our trucks, carrying our cherries to Norway, would arrive in six days. Our cherries would become deprived of their quality and become rotten due to the prolonged shipment time. But now, we have that period reduced to six hours, and all of our products are sold in the shelves in Norway within 6 days.

“On year-on-year basis we have not only increased our exportation by 30 percent but also received demands from eight new countries. The speed and capacity advantage offered by Turkish Cargo is a great opportunity for us,” he added.

The cherry harvest lasts from June to August.
