Turancan Salur, General Manager for the UK, stated 'We are committed to serving our growing number of customers in the best way possible, making a positive contribution to local economies and acting as a custodian for the environment within which we operate.
"Our UK business model is the delivery of groceries from our local stores using a 100% e-vehicle fleet. We are removing the need for millions of miles of petrol and diesel car journeys to be made every year and making our city roads safer, quieter and cleaner - at the same time as giving our customers a service that gives them great products and saves them huge amounts of valuable time.
"We already deliver groceries, household goods and some medicinal products, but Getir aims to find ways of delivering other everyday items that will take even more petrol and diesel trips off the UK's busy roads. We are here to show the world that our sustainable on-demand business can make a real difference to the communities we serve in the UK at an incredibly fast rate - as well as giving customers great value for money. We are here to prove that companies can be keen, clean and green - let the last mile be electric!"
