The service allows n11 partners and businesses to save time at low costs. With n11depom, all the logistics, shipping, and return processes are carried out by professional teams in high standards and quality.
Operations of the n11depom service are run at Ekol Logistics’ Lotus Facility, spread on an area equal to 30 football fields in Kocaeli. Lotus, operating with 1,300 employees, is the largest indoor logistics facility in Turkey. The sellers that use the n11depom services ship all or selected products to the n11depom center, where all packaging, shipping, and return processes of the orders received from all marketplaces or their own websites are carried out. This allows the sellers to manage all their e-commerce operations and inventory in a single warehouse.
Yu-Shik Kim, CEO, n11, said,
At n11, Turkey’s shopping platform, we always support the development of e-commerce and the SMEs in growing their businesses through in e-commerce. For this purpose, we continue to develop services and solutions. Following the launch of n11faturam and n11mağazam, we recently introduced our new project n11depom in partnership with Ekol Logistics. With n11depom, we offer advantages such as saving on time and storage costs, inventory tracking, and management of the return processes. In addition to more than 270 thousand sellers registered in n11, all companies involved in e-commerce, regardless of which marketplace they sell, can benefit from this service. This is why believe that this service is an important step forward in the sector. As part of the n11depom service, we also aim to develop special delivery models as we work to meet customer needs and expectations. We will continue to develop and introduce more projects to contribute to the development of e-commerce and support SMEs.
Ahmet Musul, Chairman, Ekol Logistics, noted that e-commerce is positioned at the core of the company’s growth strategy,
As we continue to make investments to respond to the growing demand in the e-commerce sector, we took an important step and partnered with n11. With the rise of e-commerce, fast storage capability and accurate and timely delivery to the end-customer increasingly become more critical performance indicators. Sellers expect their products to be delivered to the end-consumer on time, in full, and at the lowest cost. With the n11depom service, created in collaboration with Ekol Logistics and n11, we aim to meet this expectation seamlessly. We will use our Lotus facility, which features many firsts in terms of design and technology and is among the few ecofriendly facilities in Europe to provide this integrated service. This will also allow us to support SMEs in their growth efforts by creating a competitive edge.
