History

  • 1978

The foundation stone of the family-run company for logistics and transport was laid in Germany in 1978. Naci Cobanoglu founded Boltas GmbH in Munich. Initially purely a freight agent, the company grew very quickly. This was primarily due to its strong presence in the project cargo business between Europe and Iraq (Middle East). At the beginning of the 1980s, Boltas ventured into general cargo and partial load transport between Europe and Turkey (Middle East) as the first ever forwarding agents of Turkish origin. 

  • 1982

The strong demand and high requirements of their own network encouraged the brothers Necmi, Naci and Cemil Cobanoglu to establish their own logistics organisation in Turkey, in addition to the German site. And so it was that Coban Tur, the Turkish part of the Coban Tur/Boltas logistics group was established in Istanbul 1982, for partnership reasons. The basic conditions for a successful future were established. From then on, the transport company has been constantly continuing its expansion. The company’s own fleet is continuously being expanded, and the company is acquiring and developing a leading position in the European-Turkish transport market. This growth is opening up new paths and the Cobanoglu family is taking these paths. The network is growing, and with it, the quality. 

  • 2002

The ever more demanding customer requirements, the increasing competition in logistics and transport and the operative integration of Coban Tur and Boltas eventually called for a united outward image and – above all – inner unity. 35 years of continuity, and at the same time advancement, are a great foundation. Our market position is therefore an excellent starting point for future success.   

  • 2012

This success is being shaped substantially even today by the second generation of the company. Qualified and motivated successors are gradually taking over responsibility in the forwarding company. Iskender Cobanoglu is joining the management of Boltas GmbH, thus combining longstanding experience in logistics and transport with the principles of contemporary business management in order to gain synergies and an optimum operational alignment. This cooperation is also part of the corporate culture of an evolved family business.
