Cargo-partner held a ground-breaking event yesterday (30 August) to mark the start of construction of its new modern warehouse facility near Ljubljana Airport.
The iLogistics Center will be spread over 25,000 square metres of storage space and is scheduled to take up operations sometime in 2019.
Cargo-partner chief executive officer, Stefan Krauter said: “We are investing here in Slovenia because we believe that this special location near the ports of Koper and Trieste will remain an important gateway to Asia and the Mediterranean Sea as well as to former Yugoslavia, Transylvania, Hungary, Austria, Southern Germany and parts of Northern Italy.
“We have a very diligent and professional planning phase behind us, which will now be followed by a very productive construction phase.
“We want to build something which we can all be proud of and which will be the best recommendation for any logistics requirements in the region.”
The new iLogistics Center will contain over 20,000 pallet slots on more than 25,000 square metres of storage space and will also include a 6,000 square metre small parts and single pick area, 5,000 square metres of cross dock and block storage space and 4,000 square metres of office space.
Located directly next to Ljubljana Airport, approximately 20 minutes from the city centre, it will offer a direct connection to the motorway (A2). With 44 truck docks, the facility is well equipped for daily pick-up and distribution from and to the surrounding area.
The iLogistics Center will create over 100 new jobs and is set to strongly contribute to the further development of the region.
