New Flash Unit Franchisee in Turkey
A warm welcome to our new Unit Franchisee in Turkey!
We are pleased to welcome a new member of the Flash Franchisee team in Turkey! Mikail YILDIRIM, Cetin KURT and Tolga SUTCAN have joined the Flash Franchisee adventure as a Unit Franchisee to cover the areas of Tekirdag, Cerkezkoy and Edirne.
They are all logistics experts who have been working in the sector for 10 years across different companies in Turkey. Two years ago they stepped out of their comfort zone to build their own company, growing to a turnover of €500.000 per year. They have been actively working as suppliers for Flash Turkey for one year and during that time, they got to know the company and its values. They discovered the potential of having the support of a European partner. By becoming a Flash Unit Franchisee, they have taken their business even further and can enjoy all the advantages of a tight collaboration with Flash.

“Flash is a global company and with its name we thought we could reach a more competitive market with bigger clients.” Unit Franchisee team Turkey
What are the next steps?
From their office on the North side of Istanbul they will manage the areas of Tekirdag, Cerkezkoy and Edirne. Having already been collaborating with a couple of clients in these regions, the business is expected to have a smooth start. The first steps will be contacting existing customers to let them know that from now on, they are working directly as a Flash-brand licensed Franchisee. The aim is to expand and spread the message to more companies in the region. The beginning is never easy but the team is experienced and qualified and has overcome greater challenges in the past. Thanks to Flash support, certain challenges will be even easier to overcome.
“We believe that we can overcome the difficulties we may encounter while developing our agency thanks to Flash support and brand prestige.” Mikail YILDIRIM, Flash Franchisee Unit
How Flash’s IT solutions can help
Imagine, for example, coordinating all the operations with all carriers from just one office, while also keeping up to date on delivery status, managing all the paperwork and intervening when it’s needed… Flash’s IT solutions come in handy because it can simplify all these tasks. A channel of communication is always open between carriers and the agency, and this exclusive Flash tool allows everyone to perform their tasks efficiently, communicate missing documents or clarify a delivery status.
They are an ambitious team and they have plans to go far, so where do they see themselves in five years?
“We will have introduced Flash to all companies in our area and we aim to be the only minivan service provider. Maybe we will have taken other regions!” Unit Franchisee team Turkey
