The first practices regarding licensed warehousing in our country were initiated by the Turkish Grain Board. Toprak Mahsulleri Ofisi made a consignment purchase between 1993/2011 by issuing a receipt based on the provisions of the General Merchandising Law numbered 2699. With this practice, it was ensured that producers and other segments who did not have sufficient warehouses had the opportunity to market their products outside the harvest period, and the segments who left their products in consignment received finance against receipt.

Evaluation Results and Suggestions: Wheat is an important agricultural product in Mardin as in the country. It is an important input in terms of wheat, pasta, flour and bulgur production, and Mardin Kızıltepe takes an active role in the production and sales of these products in the domestic and international markets. The wheat used in the region is kept in the existing building in the warehouse of the couple / industrialist or in the warehouses rented. Existing warehouse systems do not have sufficient conditions to keep the product at the same quality. In agricultural production, which has started to increase product yield and added value with modern production techniques that have become widespread in recent years, the storage and marketing methods of the products obtained have become as important as production. Therefore, preserving the processed wheat under suitable conditions is an important issue in order to increase the added value produced in the Region. Considering the region’s need for such a licensed warehouse and the added value it will create, it is thought that this investment is necessary for the region and the country. TMO’s current knowledge and experience in public retailing across Turkey will be eligible licensed warehousing approximately 1.8 million tons of available storage capacity and licensed warehousing system in our country in terms of fulfilling the expectations established in the industry direction to lead to the establishment and development to participate in the company to be established TMO also predictable. Pasta, bulgur and flour production in Turkey and the world in general is a good place Kiziltepe industry, will increase the competitiveness of businesses related to the licensed warehouse. For this reason, licensed warehousing is an important area for Mardin where investment is needed.


Definition of the Sector and Legal Framework Description of the Sector Licensed warehousing system is a system that works integrated with Specialized Product Exchanges and / or Commodity Exchanges, and serves farmers and traders and businesses trading agricultural products. The essence of licensed warehousing is to ensure that products suitable for licensed warehousing are stored with appropriate methods, in healthy conditions and according to their quality classes, and to make the trade of these products more systematic and reliable. Agricultural products are stored in different ways and many of these warehouses unfortunately have unsuitable conditions. However, agricultural products are products of organic character, and the storage of these products is unlike the storage of any goods that do not have organic properties. Agricultural products are easily perishable due to their structure, and during storage, heat, light, moisture, ventilation, etc. They are products that require special conditions. In this context, unlicensed storages are called “ordinary repositories”. If the mentioned large capacity licensed warehouses increase, the excess supply that may occur in the market will be brought under control by storing the products and it will be possible to prevent price fluctuations caused by excess supply to some extent. Licensed warehouses; Accepting the delivered products to the licensed warehouse, if necessary, making them suitable for storage (cleaning, drying, etc.), determining the quality and quantity, insuring and storing them under appropriate conditions, In return for the product they accept to their business, the owner can be bought and sold on the stock exchange and a bank loan can be taken by pledge They are responsible for providing electronic product receipts (voucher, which is valuable document in commercial law), and delivering the product to the owner without delay, upon the request of the product owner. With the licensed warehousing system, preventing price decreases caused by the accumulation of agricultural products during the harvest period and balancing the market, Especially small farmers and product owners who have financial difficulties, provide loans and financing from banks through the product certificates they buy in return for the products they give to licensed warehouses, Agricultural products trade is widely accepted to make over standard products, to encourage quality production, to create a safe market.

Market Analysis and Marketing Industry-Market Structure and Competition Conditions Mardin Kızıltepe ORGANIZED INDUSTRIAL ZONE Licensed grain warehouse established by AKCAN LİDAŞ A.Ş.

Licensed warehouse business, which is an issue in a new and especially Turkey.

It is manufactured in Mardin Organized Industrial Zone. Licensed warehousing investment is an investment idea that will contribute not only to one business, but also to many businesses, as it will benefit the farmer along with all businesses that trade wheat and use wheat as a raw material. This investment will positively affect the competitiveness of the region. With the start of licensed warehousing activities, it is expected that the farmer’s financing cost required for production will decrease, as well as the increase of agricultural industrial facilities in the region will be encouraged, the stock market will develop, create a skilled employment effect and create a more added value effect in the development of the region.

TMO’s total capacity is 4 million tons. TMO has approximately 1.8 million tons of storage capacity that can be suitable for licensed warehousing.

Marketing Strategy Since licensed warehousing is not known in the region yet, it is necessary to carry out awareness-raising activities about the benefits of licensed warehouses in order to attract farmers, producers and industrialists. The stabilization of the agricultural markets will increase the added value obtained from agricultural production throughout the country and this situation will reflect positively on the national accounts. The development of licensed warehousing also has indirect contributions. The most important of these is the development of financial markets, the transportation sector and the creation of additional employment areas. Therefore, in order to promote the licensed warehousing activity, the relevant institutions and organizations in the province, especially the Stock Exchange, should take an active role in addition to the company that established the licensed warehouse. The licensed warehousing business has to work with the relevant institutions to promote the system. It is noteworthy that advertising and promotional activities are not carried out adequately in researches conducted on licensed warehouses established. Business partners that make the investment should carry out a diagnosis to explain the benefits of Licensed Warehousing and state support in this regard. Village trips, meetings with producers and farmers, meetings with producers of pasta, flour and bulgur in the region, meetings with merchants trading in cereals can be examples of these activities. In addition to these, it is necessary to carry out activities on printing posters, banners and brochures, and conveying messages to the target audience through the media. In order for the region and the country to reach EU standards in terms of growing and processing agricultural products, awareness should be made that the licensed warehouse for wheat should be built for all agricultural products that have strategic importance for the region suitable for storage. Existing licensed warehouses and the region factor will be taken into account when pricing.


Establishing licensed warehouses close to the production areas is important due to the development of the system, lower transportation costs and being preferred by the producers. However, proximity to the production site is not the only criterion. Licensed warehouse enterprises need large establishments due to their high storage capacities. For this reason, land prices and rents in the regions where they will be established are also important. Besides these; development level of commercial life in the establishment areas, infrastructure facilities (electricity, water, sewage etc.), transportation status, natural risks, etc. situations are also of great importance. The facility plot should be close to intercity roads; However, it should not be on the road, considering that many trucks and trucks will create long queues during the harvest season. The fact that the land is close to the existing or planned railway can provide an advantage for the business. For the establishment of a licensed warehouse of 50,000 tons, approximately 20 decares of space is needed. It seems beneficial to establish it in Akcan lidaş Mardin Organized Industrial Zone. Since it is located in the Mesopotamian plain, the storage of products is the biggest advantage.


Current Technologies Currently, storage technology is done in two ways as horizontal and silo storage. In horizontal storage, the product is stored in sacks or with a pallet system. In silo storage, the product subject to licensed storage is stored in bulk in silos.
