WSSA Sends Love to Those Impacted by the Earthquake in Turkey and Syria

Posted 02/09/2023

As we continue to receive news of the devastation and hardship that has resulted from the catastrophic earthquake in Turkey and Syria earlier this week, our hearts and thoughts go out to all who are in the midst of this crisis. All of us at WSSA are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of many lives as a result of this disaster. We express our love and support to the people of those countries as they cope with this awful tragedy. 

The earthquake unfortunately caused significant damage to logistics and transport infrastructure in Turkey and surrounding areas. The Port of Iskenderun suffered substantial damage which has led to a complete stop of all operations until further notice. Until the port operations can resume safely once again, we recommend seeking alternate routes for any cargo coming out of Turkey.
