"Mixed system", that is used by Toyota Turkey for picking up parts from suppliers. There are dedicated trucks making a ring between Toyota Turkey and suppliers. Every supplier prepares requested parts in small lots in front of their doors "just in time". Therefore, truck picks up "filled" boxes from suppliers and leaves empty boxes of previous shipment.

Trucks transport them to Derince and Evyap ports from where they will be sent to final destinations via vessels.
