Mr. Tamer Kıran, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Istanbul and Marmara, Aegean, Mediterranean Black Sea Regions (IMEAK) Chamber of Shipping, drew attention to monopolization initiatives in the industry, stating that such pursuits pose serious risks to both countries and corporations by resulting in a lack of alternatives in the supply chain.
Mr. Kıran stated that the overall capacity of the top ten company that supply containerization services is estimated to be 85 percent, and that such enterprises were found to be pursuing new modes and services in the wake of high freight charges and added the following.
Despite the fact that tariff rates are soaring, we have noticed that large businesses would want to offer a variety of modes and services in the transportation industry. For the time being, such monopolization, which threatens sea shipping stakeholders, poses threats in a variety of ways. Checking all forms of transportation and centralizing data at every specific locus may lead to more monopolization and data storage than Amazon or Facebook. Similarly, the absence of any alternative in the supply chain creates enormous risks to all nations and enterprises.
