Services GPH's proactive and dynamic marketing campaign targets container shipping lines, cruise lines and travel agencies. For its commercial business, GPH performs extensive market research and hosts industry presentations in each respective port's region to meet with prospective customers. GPH management actively promotes containerization, which results in higher margins for the port and creates economic incentives for container shipping lines to add the port to their itinerary. This is achieved through marketing efforts and effecting upgrades to the ports' container handling capacity.

Port Akdeniz Cargo Handlings Port Akdeniz Antalya’s location and its surrounding mineral wealth and mining operations have enabled the port to position itself as a strategic gateway for exporters to diverse global markets for cement, clinker, alluminium, marble and chromium. The rise in exports of these goods in turn increased the demand for the Turkish port. In order to cope with this increasing demand, substantial investments in infrastructure,

equipment and labour efficency have been made. The major increase in volume was caused by containers, therefore GPH has bought two mobile harbour cranes in the last three years, along with many forklifts and reachstackers. These investments made their operations much more efficient. In 2011 GPH invested in warehouse for stocking goods - an area of 50.000m2, made it totally flat and concrete to ıncrease the area of our container freight station along with more efficient container stocking. Future plans of investment inculude a new terminal for liquid bulk handling and the lengthening and dredging of piers. Graphic 20. Port Akdeniz Cargo Handlings
