Now Offering Service in Russia...

 Turkey’s first private distribution firm is now expanding its service networks abroad.  After setting up service centers in the Turkish Republic of Cypress, Ukraine and Romania we are now in Russia as well. Our aim is to have 1,000 centers ready for service and at least 10 percent of the market share by the year 2012.

After a detailed setup period in Russia we have become the first mass-distribution service in Russia. Our goal is to a ten percent share in the billion dollar distribution market in Russia by 2012. We use technology to our full advantage  in all our operations.  We offer registered and unregistered distribution, moto-couriers and express delivery services in Russia now. Despite such a short time having passed since joining the Russian distribution sector we have recieved much interest from local firms. We aim to have distribution centers’ numbers reach 100 by the end of 2009, 350 by 2010, and 1,000 by 2011.

For the first time in the sector, packages carried by couriers are tracked and recorded by GPS technology from origin to destination. Using this system, processes such as delivery, visitation and return can be controlled remotely. Using  cell phones, GPS recievers, special programs and software developed by our own Research and Development department the couriers can relay information to the central branch about the situation of any delivery as well as create reports automatically.

 

Starting in 1993 up to the current day we have been proud to provide service in the mass distribution sector and bring new perspective to the sector. In recent years we have had the opportunity to use our success at home to carry business abroad, launching service abroad, most recently ın Russia. In terms of surface area, Russia is one of the largest countries on earth and with each passing day comes to need a reliable distribution firm more and more. Despite having only just begun service in Russia, we have met heavy demand. Our hope is to reach 1,000 service centers and 10% of the market share in Russia by the year 2012.

Celebrating Our 15th Year

As Turkey’s first private  mass distribution firm we’re preparing to say hello to our 16th year. From our beginning in Istanbul in 1993 to today, we continue to succeed and keep moving  ahead.  With 228 agencies in Turkey, The Turkish Republic of Cyprus,  Ukraine, Romania and Russia,  we’re knocking  on an average of 2.5 million door every month as we grow through technology, innovations in the sector,  and commitment to quality service .

It is because of this dedication to quality service that we continue our leadership in the distribution sector not only in Turkey but abroad.  By combining a focus on customer satisfaction with the possibilities of ever-evolving technology we have come to a top position in the sector by offering innovation  after innovation.

As necessitated by our ISO 9001-2000 Quality Management Certificate we make our every move according to our ideal of service quality, whether it be sending, pickup or delivery of a package.  Wıth our customer service department, operation teams and and call centers  we can offer continous service.

As a leader and founder in the sector we recognize our responsibility towards the development of science, education, culture, and art. In the spirit of this awareness we have recently completed our ninth year of the annual “Little Friend” school supplies campaign, donating to school children in less privileged regions of Turkey.

In order for packages to reach their intended destination quickly and safely, we have signed our name onto many firsts in regards to our advanced technological infrastructure. Examples of these technology-based solutions include Text Message  and Email updates upon delivery, as well as having the honor of being the first in the distribution sector to use GPRS based online hand-terminals (GTR).  Also, thanks to our Research and Development department  we have the privilege of using self-developed software  to allow for remote surveillance of field operations such as delivery,  visit, or return as a first in Turkey and the World.

Aktif Ileti’s wish is to first understand the needs and demands of customers, and then to present quality solutions to those demands.  From the day of our foundation till today our company structure has been built around the concept  of customer service. We use technology to our advantage in all the services we provide  and lead the sector in implementation of those technologies. Our desire is to continue to be a trustworthy and dependable service for customers in the future.

Aktif Ileti Now Using GPS Tracking!

Aktif Ileti is proud to announce that for the first time, field operations in delivery will be tracked using Global Positioning Systems (GPS).

What is possible using GPS?
Now, when a customer sends a package, the delivery can be tracked by satellite on a numerical map according to city, province, or street. Thanks to the GPS tracking, we can be sure that packages delivered and yet undelivered alike are being taken to exactly the correct location.

As well as providing customers with updates on the status of the deliveries, we will now also be able to provide map locations and other data for all transactions.

We can track our deliverymen's performance using our own programs integrated into the satellite tracking system as well as use the data gathered from those systems to find and perfect the optimum delivery routes.

We continue to use new technology to transport, improve, and make a difference in service quality.

The Stationary Aid Campaign With a Personalized Letter

In 2000 wıth input from the company body we embarked upon the SAPL campaign, which quickly spreading by e-mail reached amazing proportions within an 8 year period. The aim of this campaign is to reach out to children of families experiencing financial difficulties, most of whom occupy villages throughout Turkey, that are being educated in public elementary schools and provide them with resources to aid their studies. This campaign is traditionally organized at the beginning of each school year and to this day has provided 156,000 of our little friends with aid packets. The packets collected from you are not sent to any "authority" but to the children personally, just as we try to deliver the thank-you letters the students have written to the senders. it is our social conscienciousness, of course, which prompts us to do do these services at no charge. To view the details of individual packets, some of the unforgettable photographs of the volunteers and the campaign and to read the comments and letters of teachers and students who've been a part of the campaign, you will find it under the heading "Our Social Responsibilities" on our website.
