AUSTRIA's Cargo-Partner is on track to finish its big Slovenian warehouse - which began construction in June 2018 - by this summer, reports New York's Air Cargo World.
The 82,000-square foot 'iLogistics Centre' will be located directly next to Ljubljana Airport (LJU) - previously known as Brnik Airport - a regional hub that receives most of its traffic from routes connecting the Slovenian capital to Frankfurt, Zurich, London and Brussels.
'We believe that this special location near Brnik Airport and the ports of Koper and Trieste will remain an important gateway from Asia and to the Mediterranean Sea,' said Cargo-Partner country manager Viktor Kastelic.
The Slovenian economy is highly dependent on foreign trade. Following European Union countries, which make up two-thirds of its total trade, China is its biggest non-European importer.
Cargo-Partner has been developing its Eurasian network with recent investments in similar iLogistics centres in Bulgaria and Slovakia, as well as in Southeast Asian countries - most recently, Thailand. Its services target shippers in fashion, foodstuff, technology, automotive and pharmaceutical industries.
