Gökhan Akyürek, Chairman of the Board of Directors of GKN Cargo, a fast-growing player in the cargo sector, said that the importance of digitalization in the cargo sector, “Planning and time management do not accept human error. For this reason, we are accelerating our digitalization investments”.
THEY WILL PROVIDE DIGITALIZATION TRAINING TO THEIR EMPLOYEES
Emphasizing that the solution to overcome the negativities in the cargo sector is digitalization, Gökhan Akyürek said, “Managing cargo shipments requires correct planning by taking into account many variables. Human error is not only caused by doing something wrong, it is also human error to ignore, underestimate, or ignore a variable. The condition of the vehicle that will be on the road, will there be precipitation on the route? Does the driver on the road dominate the route? Are there any maintenance and repair works on the roads and cities to be passed? Many variables should be taken into consideration, decisions should be made accordingly, and the customer should be informed correctly. We are holding a training meeting to explain our new software, which will manage all these variables from a single system, to our employees. With our digitalization trainings, we will use our new software efficiently and prevent human-induced errors.”

Emphasizing that it is difficult but not unattainable to reach the target of sending 1 million cargo per day, Gökhan Akyürek said, “We studied the industry that shifted from retail to internet shopping during the pandemic and took quick action. We achieved our 2021 percent growth target in the first half of 150, when the effects of the pandemic began to wane. We have no doubt that we will achieve our 2022 goals. We will continue to carry the Turkish economy to keep it alive," he concluded.
