We aim to carry out very successful and highly impactful projects and initiatives with our role model members each of which are more successful than the other in the industry.

The logistics and transportation sector in Turkey is still one of the sectors with the lowest women participation in the workforce. Our efforts as a team will be dedicated to empowering women and achieving gender equality in our industry. We are ready to mobilize all our resources;

  1. For our young girls to prefer this sector in their university education,

  3. To Support women entrepreneurs in this sector.


The know-how accumulation, experience and collaboration on best-practice sharing with our WiLAT Global network, which is a great power on a global scale, makes us even stronger to achieve our goals.
As we always believe, we are stronger together !
