    ; 51 Years of dedicated service to customers from Akkök Group, one of Turkeys

    leading industrial groups, that ensures customer satisfaction.

    Akport was established in 1997 when it won the privatisation of the former state run port of Tekirda. Since then, Akport has invested in new port equipment and has provided first class service to clients handling bulk and general cargo at the port. Throughput in 2000 grew by 10% to top one million tons. It is the home base for regu-lar thrice weekly RoRo services to Trieste, Italy. The fast and efficient service of the port has been a major cornerstone in establishing Tekirda as a connection point for

    European Ro-Ro services and capturing a market share of 25% within only three years. With AKPORT CONTAINER TERMINAL, the company intends to extend this philoso-

    phy to the use of the international and Turkish container line operators in the Sea of Marmara so that they can serve their customers with the same degree of reliability as Akport will serve its clients.

    2.1 Location

    AKPORT CONTAINER TERMINAL is located at Lat. 40? 57’ 45’’ N, Long. 27? 30’ 24’’

    E on the north-western part of the Sea of Marmara at the town of Tekirda. Tekirda,

    situated 136 km west of Istanbul is the heart of the Thrace industrial region. The dis-

    tance to other main centres are 140 km to Edirne, 42 km to ;orlu, 45 km to ;orlu

    Airport, 60 km to the European Free Trade Zone ASB at Velimeşe, 125 km to Kirk-

    lareli and 72 km to Cerkezköy. Akport has two main connections to the Istanbul met-

    ropolitan area:

    1. Via the coastal road (No. 110/100): dual carriageway from Istanbul to Kinali (near

    Silivri).

    2. Via the E 80 Trans European Motorway, the nearest access points being at ;orlu,

    only 42 km from Tekirda and Kinali, 60 km from Tekirda.

    All connections are congestion free and offer a transit time to western Istanbul of

    about two hours. Tekirda is outside of the area of influence of the Istanbul Hay-

    Koop Truck Co-operative. The Tekirda truck co-operative has over 500 vehicles

    that can provide a fast and reliable pre- and on-carriage of containers to and from the

    AKPORT CONTAINER TERMINAL at competitive rates.

    The port is located 150 km from the Bulgarian and Greek borders and 24 km from the

    main railway line Istanbul Edirne and on to Sofia, Bulgaria. The nearest connecting

    point is Muratli, 24 km from Tekirda. Construction of a direct branch line to con-

    nect the port with the European rail network is expected to begin shortly and will

    benefit Akport's clients from the first day.

    Marmara Region, Turkeys premier industrial region. With a population of just under

    2.3 Sponsors

    AKPORT CONTAINER TERMINAL is owned and operated BY AKPORT TEKIRDA LI-

    MAN ;!LETMESI A., a wholly owned subsidiary of AKKÖK INVESTMENT AND DE-

    VELOPMENT INC. and a member of the AKKÖK GROUP. The AKKÖK GROUP, which

    HPC Hamburg Port Consulting GmbH

    Marketing Brief for Akport Container Terminal 5

    has grown out of the textile manufacturing company AKSU established in 1952, today

    includes twenty-six industrial and trading companies, a family of 6,900 employees and a performance record that is second to very few. The activities of the Group range from manufacturing of various textile and chemical products, energy, real estate de-velopment, the management of one of the worlds most prestigious shopping malls to last, but not least, port management and cargo handling. Over the last five years, the Group has invested a total of USD 250 mill. and paid USD 60 million in direct taxes to the Government in the fiscal year 2000.

    AKKÖK GROUPS involvement in the energy sector with an initial investment of USD 133 million in 1992, triggered a series of subsequent investments that have contrib-uted to the alleviation of Turkeys serious energy shortage. AK-ENERGY, the Group’s

    energy subsidiary, has now become the leading independent producer of energy in Turkey, producing over 35% of all electricity generated by independent power com-panies.

    Two other accomplishments in particular standout to mark AKKÖK GROUPS leader-

    ship in Turkeys economic growth: Its subsidiary AKSA has grown to become the

    worlds largest producer of acrylic fibre under one roof. Secondly, AKMERKEZ, a

    shopping and office complex completed in 1993, has become the first shopping mall in the world to receive two prominent awards concurrently: “The Best Over All Shop-

    ping Centre in Europe” and the “International Design and Development” award in 1996.

    These achievements are proof of the strength and success of the Group’s philosophy of expansion and growth, embodied in the original vision and principles of its founder, Mr. Raif Dinçkök. Recognition and development of human resources as the Group’s

    most valuable asset is a key principle that will guarantee the utmost customer satisfac-tion at the AKPORT CONTAINER TERMINAL.
