Varamar opens new branch in Istanbul, Turkey

Carrier of breakbulk, dry-bulk, oversized and containerized cargo, Varamar has announced it has opened a branch in İstanbul, Türkiye in response to growing customer demand.

The office, headed by newly-appointed managing director of Varamar İstanbul, Emre Öncü who has extensive experience in shipping, previously holding a senior chartering role at Core Shipping in İstanbul.

The branch opening was a logical step for Varamar, which operates semi-liner services to and from Europe, Middle East, Asia and Africa – all of which serve the Mediterranean and Black seas, as well as Türkiye.

Öncü says: ‘We see the growing potential of Türkiye, and the wider Caspian and Middle East region, and would therefore like to lay the foundation for the company’s future growth on the crossroads between east and west. Varamar has been providing trusted shipping solutions since its formation in 2009 and our new operation in İstanbul will offer the same full package of services, including document support, port operations monitoring and engineering, as well as unrivalled cargo care and customer service.’
