DFDS is going to take over the international road transport division of EKOL, one of Turkey’s leading logistics companies according to the news source Dünya.

The parties already shook hands in principle. After the official signatures and competition approval, EKOL International Road Transport company, which accounts for approximately 60 percent of the group’s turnover, will join DFDS.
