Ford Otosan: Turkey’s export champion
In 2019, we have achieved exports amounting $5.9 billion sustaining our Turkey and sector leadership.
We increased our exports by 2% resulting in record 334,455 units in 2019 where we realized vehicle and parts exports to 96 countries in 5 continents. With these units, we realized 79% of Turkey’s total commercial vehicle exports.
Ford Otosan is the only automotive plant to have its own port, which gives the company an important competitive advantage over its peers. Our Yeniköy Port, with 400,000 annual loading and unloading capacity, is currently the only automotive specialty port integrated with production.
