ISTANBUL – Inc said on Wednesday it will set up a logistic base in Turkey to meet rising demand, with a more than $100 million investment.

It said the facility will create more than 1,000 jobs in its first year, and will support the domestic and export operations of the small- and mid-sized businesses that sell products on the site.

The Istanbul-based logistic centre will open in the autumn this year, the e-commerce giant added.
