cargo-partner has successfully completed the construction of its modern warehouse complex near Ljubljana Airport in Slovenia. The iLogistics Center, which provides 25,000 m² of storage space, has taken up operations as of August and will be officially opened in September 2019.
With 25,000 square meters of warehouse space and 4,000 square meters of office space, the iLogistics Center is one of the largest warehouse complexes in the region and will serve cargo-partner’s clients in Slovenia as well as other Central and South-East European countries. Despite the complexity and size of the building, construction was completed within eleven months and cargo-partner’s operational activities in the warehouse have begun as of August 2019. Throughout the month of August, cargo-partner’s other offices and warehouses in Ljubljana, including the Slovenian head office, will gradually be relocated to the new facility.
At the new iLogistics Center near Ljubljana Airport, cargo-partner offers short and long-term storage as well as a comprehensive portfolio of value added services including picking and packing, labeling, cross-docking, consolidation, multi-channel distribution, e-fulfillment and other contract logistics services. The warehouse has 44 truck loading docks and a storage capacity of over 20,000 pallet slots. In addition, the location offers a 6,000 m² small parts store as well as 5,000 m² of cross-dock and block storage areas.
Viktor Kastelic, Managing Director of cargo-partner in Slovenia, is delighted about the timely completion of the building and the opportunities offered by the new facility: “The new iLogistics Center is a big milestone for cargo-partner in Slovenia and we are certain it will boost our growth not only locally in Slovenia, but in the wider region as well. At the same time, we put a lot of efforts in making the new working environment welcoming and motivating for our colleagues.”
