DP World Yarimca and P&O Ferrymasters Team Up To Deliver Vital Supplies To Frontline Areas Battling Fires

A global logistics firm is working with partners and local government agencies to deliver vital supplies and protective clothing to people on the front line of the devastating fires on the south-west coast of Turkey. 

DP World and P&O Ferrymasters are leading the drive for donations on behalf of Antalya Metropolitan Municipality and Turkish KIZILAY, which had listed a number of specific items that were required. 

The logistics firms leapt into action after seeing the devastation caused by the fires in Milas and Antalya, volunteering to collect, store, package and deliver the items as the number of people and businesses donating began to rise. The first batch of supplies were delivered on Saturday (14th).

DP World, which has a base in Yarimca in the north-west of the country, was keen to offer its expert services in end-to-end logistics as part of its commitment to the country and its community. 

The firm’s Yarmica-based employees also added their own donations while volunteering their time to collect the supplies and help with its delivery, with some also travelling south to help with the effort on the ground. 

Kris Adams, CEO, DP World Yarimca, commented: “The country currently finds itself fighting some of the most severe blazes seen in Turkey in recent times. 

“When the fires broke out, DP World was eager to play its part and offer its transport services as a means of getting the necessary equipment and donations to those heroic individuals and volunteers on the frontline. 

“The impact of these fires has been widespread and felt all across the country. We hope that, with the support of other organisations and the wider business community, that impact can be minimised and life can return to something close to normal in all affected regions as soon as possible.”

Fires have been raging in Turkey since 28th July, due to a heatwave in Southern Europe. Severe fires are also being tackled in Greece, Spain and Italy. It's the worst fire crisis Turkey has experienced in a decade, as coastal resorts have been hit and tourists have had to be evacuated to safety.

P&O Ferrymasters is a leading European provider of tailored transportation, logistics and supply chain solutions. It provided a container for transporting the vital supplies.   

Thorsten Runge, Managing Director of P&O Ferrymasters, said: “People are our most important asset, and I am delighted to see the P&O Ferrymasters’ family come together to assist those in Turkey’s fire-impacted regions. With the ongoing support of our parent company, DP World, there are no challenges that we cannot help to overcome.”
