Billur Burkutoğlu, the Deputy General Manager of Marketing at Aras Kargo, said that “We are excited to provide our children with a delivery experience in this area that we have opened at KidZania Istanbul. Children need to recognize the professions, business areas, and functioning that ensure the flow of life at an early age to be able to make sense of the world they live in. KidZania fulfills an important responsibility in this area. As the leading company in the delivery sector, we have created this activity area to enable children to experience the journey of delivery face-to-face and learn the basic information about this profession by having fun.
During the pandemic process, the work intensity in the delivery sector has increased a lot. Especially during the period spent at home, children also encountered delivery employees more often during the online education process. They left messages on the doors for their brothers and sisters who were carrying shipments. Now they will have the opportunity to experience their profession with their brothers and sisters, for whom they left messages. They will have the opportunity to see all the stages of the service we offer and the products and services that are the carriers of the process together in this event area with the appearance of the Aras Kargo branch.”
Stating that KidZania is the first institution to implement the concept of learning by having fun defined as ‘edutainment’, Ebru Timur, the General Manager of KidZania, said that “Children have the opportunity to develop their abilities while gaining new skills and values through the role-playing learning method at KidZania. They experience being individuals in society by working as a team with their peers whom they met for the first time. We are very happy to have entrusted our courier activity, which is one of the professions that children can experience within KidZania, to Aras Kargo in cooperation with Aras Kargo. We always emphasize that KidZania is a country of children and think that it is important that every area in life finds a presence in KidZania in this regard. Children have the opportunity to gain communication, motor skills, cooperation, helping others, attention, and direction-finding skills while developing the values of responsibility, solidarity, and self-confidence in KidZania Aras Kargo activity."
