Marken Operational Update: 7.9 Magnitude Southern Turkey Earthquake

On behalf of our global team, our hearts and thoughts go out to all of those affected by the recent devastating disaster in Turkey. Marken is closely following reports across the snowy region of Southern Turkey where a 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck on February 6.

10 cities were affected: Gaziantep, Kahramanmaras, Hatay, Osmaniye, Adiyaman, Malatya, Sanliurfa, Adana, Diyarbakir and Kilis, including some domestic airports & hospitals. As a result, restrictions for collections and deliveries have been impacted.

Marken and UPS Operations Teams are monitoring all shipments that may be impacted and are taking the necessary steps with Business Continuity Plans in place, to proactively mitigate disruptions for our clients and patients.

We remain committed to sourcing the best available options for each shipment as we continue to observe ongoing challenges. Please contact your local Marken branch or business professional if you have questions about a particular shipment.

Marken will continue to oversee the ongoing situation and will share updates as available.

Understanding why we must adapt, continuously asking ourselves how we can change what matters is how we keep on delivering it.
