Maritime Transport/Logistics: Turkish OMSAN Growing Power

From 2019, the Turkish Omsan Logistics expands its fleet in the sector of container transport, national and international. In the free zone of Tangiers, the shipowner will double its volumes imported from Turkey between February and July 2019. There will be added new customers who will come to settle in Morocco, and with whom the logistician has already negotiated.

These new products will double Omsan’s turnover in 2019. As for steel, currently, it imports between 13,000 and 15,000 tons per year. In 2019, volumes will reach 30,000 tons with 280 containers per year of automotive windows are imported. By 2019, they will reach 2,000.

Established in Morocco for more than 6 years, the logistician accompanies the rise of Renault Morocco. “The collaboration with the car manufacturer is the springboard that launched us at the start. Through this reference, we have been able to develop our logistic potential,” says Hamza Falaky, manager of the Moroccan subsidiary.

The group manages to succeed despite the multiplicity of players on the market. For the management, the strength comes from the group to which the subsidiary is backed. Subsidiary of the Turkish conglomerate Oyak, Omsan Logistics was created to take charge of the logistics of the group companies.

This is why he opened a warehouse in Medhub Tanger-Med in 2017 via a subsidiary called Omsan Warehousing Morocco. With a capacity of 3,760 m2, the Tangier hub offers storage and crossdocking services for all types of products as well as hazardous materials.

The warehouse is mainly used to store steel coils for delivery to the Renault-Nissan plant in Tangier, supplied by Erdemir, another group company. Erdemir is one of the largest steel producers in the world, with a production capacity of 3,850 million tons of liquid steel. Begun in 2018, this springboard will complete the service package, which now includes storage, international operations, declaration and transportation.

In its development strategy, Omsan Logistics targets all business sectors, including vehicle storage and transportation. Founded in 1978, it was in 2013 that Omsan Morocco opened its doors. The transport of cars is his first activity.

Its vehicle carriers transport cars imported or manufactured from virtually all homes (Toyota, Renault, Smeia, Auto Hall …) with the exception of luxury brands. It also provides an ancillary storage service within its park located in El Mansouria (Greater Casablanca region).

“Between 2017 and 2018, activity grew by approximately 10%. And we intend to increase this increase to 25%. Our ambition is to become the head of the car transport market in the next five years,” says Hamza Falaky. However, nothing filters on the turnover.
