As AKTUR, we believe that the most important step of the services that will ensure the satisfaction of all our stakeholders will be possible with an effective supply chain management. Within the scope of supply chain management, we meet the expectations of all our stakeholders by creating collaborations focused on qualified input supply, qualified process management and qualified human development.
For this purpose, all units involved in Supply Chain Management coordinate strategic activities and share vision.
AKTUR approaches all stakeholders it serves with a solution partner understanding rather than a customer-supplier relationship. Within the framework of this understanding, it reduces both the workload and the operational costs paid for these transactions by its business partners through R&D and business development activities, and improves its domestic and foreign trade operation activities. With the digitalisation of the supply chain, we enable all our business partners to reduce inventory, management, distribution and transportation costs. In addition, all our stakeholders can monitor, report and manage all processes with special authorisation. Distribution and stock holding costs can be reduced by eliminating uncertainty in the supply chain with maximum efficiency, reducing the use of paper and controls.
AKTUR attaches importance to ensuring that the products and services required to perform its operations are procured in compliance with laws and ethical values, and that they do not come from sources that violate human rights, occupational health and safety, the environment, intellectual property and confidential information. We aim to spread and maintain the values and policies we adopt throughout the entire supply chain. In order to achieve this goal, we expect all our subcontractors and suppliers to be in solidarity with our company. In order to realise continuous improvement, it is important to provide feedback and share positive practices.
