Barsan Global Logistics is a leading logistics company based in Istanbul. The company provides shipping, air and land transportation services; storing management services for goods in warehouses and distribution centers; customs clearance services; and solutions for supply chain analysis and design.
The company's strength is its comprehensive management of these multiple services, which it provides to customers end-to-end. It is capable of handling a customer’s entire logistics process in an optimal way, from collection at production sites and inventory control to delivery to stores and return of excess stock.
Since its founding in 1982, Barsan has been actively building a global brand and today offers logistics services across a vast geography, from the Unties States to China and from Europe to Asia, through 73 logistics centers in 33 countries.
In relation to Japan, the company has been working with Japanese companies in Turkey until recently. However, as the transportation of goods has increased between the two countries, it has become necessary to strengthen logistics support in Japan as well, and it established the subsidiary Barsan Global Logistic in Tokyo in September 2018. In the future, it plans to provide logistics services in Japan centered on international transportation.
To assist with the establishment of the company’s base in Japan, the JETRO Invest Japan Business Support Center (IBSC) provided temporary office space; consultation on company registration, visa, tax and labor matters; market and regulatory information; and business matching. The IBSC also introduced a certified legal specialist for company registration and visa application, tax accountant and service office.
