Gulf News - Sharjah-based port operator Gulftainer Company Limited is discussing potential management contracts in Turkey and India in its efforts to grow its overseas business, a senior official said. The company said it is looking for both container and general cargo opportunities. "Gulftainer is negotiating to become involved in one or more ports in Turkey, probably in the Marmara region," commercial manager Keith Nuttall told Gulf News. He said his company considers Turkey "as a major economic force both now and in the future, with huge potential, not least in the ports and transport sectors." Gulftainer is close to forming a joint venture with a Turkish logistics and transportation company.
