Karaismailoglu, stating that PTT is one of the distinguished organizations with its 180-year long history serving in all areas of life from postal services to banking, from logistics services to e-commerce. And he reminded that PTT, keeping up with the digital transformation taking place in the world, started its commercial activities in the field of e-commerce in 2012 with the brand PttAVM.com.

“turkishsouq.com has been transformed into a platform on a global scale”
Karaismailoglu stated that the cooperation in the field of e-commerce was successful and in 2019, with the extension “turkishsouq.com”, it crossed the borders of Qatar and turned into a platform on a global scale.

Thanks to this cooperation, PTT has made an important initiative in the field of e-export, which is supported by its strong logistics infrastructure on behalf of our country, and ensured the supply of approximately 300 thousand of our products to the world market. I hope the international launch of the platform will be beneficial for our countries.
