Cargo-Partner to launch hub construction at Brnik airport
The 52,000 sq. metre centre will employ 130 people immediately after the launch, which is planned for the third quarter of 2019, said a press release from Protim Ržišnik Perc, a Kranj-based engineering company steering the construction of Cargo-Partner's hub.
Protim Ržišnik Perc acts as a partner of Raiffeisen Leasing, the owner of plots across the main road from the airport, where a new business complex, featuring also the Cargo-Partner hub, will be built in the coming years.
Cargo-Partner has been present in Slovenia for over two decades. A recent press release from the group shows that it generated EUR 698m in revenue last year, up 26% from 2016. The group handled more than a million of parcels in 2017 and saw an increase in air shipments.
Cargo-Partner has been expanding its capacities over the course of the past few years. Among other things, it launched a new storage facility in Sofia, Bulgaria, expanded a logistics centre in Slovakia, and built several storage houses in Hamburg, Germany, and the US.
Cargo-Partner is not the only logistics giant positioning itself near Slovenia's biggest airport. The Swiss group Kuehne+Nagel has recently completed a new facility which will reportedly be the biggest logistics centre serving the Swiss pharma company Novartis in Europe.
