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.
