Tufekci (pronounced Tufekchi), is a Turkish transport company that was established in the late 1990s and offers various transport services and solutions to and from Iran (particularly from Europe) as well as to other countries such as: Turkmenistan, Georgia, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq and other countries in the Middle East. Among the services the company offers in its service of the Iranian market are: land, sea and air transport services, overseas customs clearance services, letter of credit (LC), transport Storage, packaging, document exchange and internal transport, transit and port services inside Iran. In addition to Europe, Tufekci transports goods from the USA and Canada;

Tufekci is a pivotal link in the Iranian chain of supply. Tufekci transfers a wide range of cargo to Iran, including chemicals. Ranging from industrial machinery, heavy machinery, luxury cars, chemicals and more. Includes the purchase of dual-use machinery, including CNC machines which play an essential part in the Iranian missilery project;

Tufekci’s main entry and exit point to and from Iran is via the land route. The Company owns warehouses in Istanbul and Bulgaria (in Sofia and Plovdiv). The warehouses that are located in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, are particularly important since Plovdiv houses a customs area for cargo coming in and out the EU. According to the LinkedIn page of Günay Bilgin, an accountant in Tufekci’s subsidiary that deals directly with Iran, the Company groups all its shipments to Iran in a warehouse in Bulgaria located near the customs area in Plovdiv. From there, twice a week, cargo is hauled into the warehouse in Turkey and from there into Iran;

Tufekci’s air route also involves land-transport into Iran. Once cargo arrives to Turkey and is probably housed in Tufekci’s warehouses in Istanbul, it is transported by land into Iran. Cargo that arrives by sea is transferred, via land to Iran from two ports. Cargo that is shipped from Canada and the USA typically arrives at Turkey and from there it is transferred into Iran. Cargo arriving from European ports (for example, Barcelona or the port of Batumi in Georgia), are transferred into Iran via Turkey;
