Good Morning Craig,
STI Global Logistics are a UK based Freight Forwarder with weekly services to and from Turkey. We have our own agents in Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Mersin. They take care of all local customs clearances and deliveries out there. Once you have spoken to the UKTI rep on the other information you require, please contact me and I can assist you further especially with the freight costs etc. I can also put you in touch with our Turkish offices who can advise and guide you through what you need to know.
Shipping Terms wise, popular one is C&F to Destination Port then leave the Consignee to pay all Turkish Locals. Currency wise they seem keen to work with Pounds mainly or Euros, but Pounds Sterling are the most Popular. Insurance wise, we offer full marine insurance cover from Door to Door at very low premiums which will also cover any freight costs paid, something most Marine Insurance companies do not cover.
My contact details are below when you need to discuss further:
My Best Regards

Hi Craig,

You might want to take a look at HMRC Notice 812 which explains various aspects of trade with Turkey and whether an A.TR preference document could be used for your goods to achieve a lower or nil rate of import duty.

You can apply online for an A.TR document via your local Chamber of Commerce at www.e-zcert.com
Your local chamber would probably be able to give you further advice.

Kind regards,
Ian James.

Craig -

It's great that you are looking to export to Turkey!

You might like to think about optimising your website too, so that it is visible in Google in Turkey. This can help you to find new agents and distributors in the country, as well as getting enquiries direct from potential customers in Turkey.

Let us know if you need any help with your website!
