Upon its establishment in 1954 as a ship management company, Turkon Holding grew to become a vertically integrated shipping company to operate across various segments of the maritime industry. Today, it acts as the parent company for its container line, shipbuilding, logistics, and ship management businesses with over 2000 employees.
With over half a century of experience within the maritime industry and the support of its employees, customers, and suppliers; Turkon Holding has become one of the leading brands in Turkey.
Turkon Line was established in 1997 as Turkey’s first private container carrier. Since then, it has been providing its customers fast solutions and quality service across many routes including direct Turkey – East Mediterranean (Israel, Egypt, Lebanon) service, Turkey – Northern Europe / Mediterranean / Black Sea services, and Turkey – US East Coast service as the only direct service.
As the largest private shipyard in Turkey in area and building capacity, Sedef Shipyard has joined Turkon Holding Group in 2000. The Group also owns and operates logistics companies for truck and rail transportation, hence covering the whole supply chain in the global transportation of goods for its customers.
