automatic creation of category url-key during product import

automatic creation of category url-key during product import

Hi,
I'm trying to import 5000 products into magento 2.1 by CSV file. The file also contains categories for the products and I aim to import categories as well. During import when categories are being created the url-key assigned to them is blank. So when it goes to the next record and tries to create new categories, there's the error :"Category "A/B/C/" has not been created. URL key for specified store already exists". My understanding is that since the import mechanism is unable to create proper url-key based on category name, then a blank entry is put as url-key and the next category to import which also has a blank url-key identifies a duplicate and throws an exception.
Does anyone knows a way to set a default mechanism, to generate url-key based on category name during import process?
Thanks!
