The Austrian Cargo-partner is constructing a modern logistics center near Sofia International Airport, scheduled to open in the beginning of 2018. The investment of 15.3 million euro will create more than 20 new jobs. The international transport and logistics provider plans to build the new logistics center in Sofia as part of the company’s strategic investments into strengthening its worldwide warehousing capacities.
The new logistics center will contain 22,000 pallet slots on more than 16,500 m2 of storage space as well as 2,000 m2 of office space. This new facility will be added next to the 10,000 m2 logistics facility which the company has been operating since 2015. The location near Sofia International Airport provides direct connections to the metro station and railway line as well as easy access to the motorways Trakia (A1), Hemus (A2) and Struma (A3).
The warehouse will be especially suited for the storage of oversized cargo and spare parts and will include a customs bonded warehouse. The facility will have a special area for the storage of foods and other temperature-sensitive goods with a temperature range between +10 and +20°C. Value added services offered at the new warehouse will include packaging, labeling, delivery and returns.
The Austrian company Cargo-partner was founded over 30 years ago and generated a turnover of 555 million euro with 2,588 employees in 2016. “After starting the construction of our modern iLogistics Center near Vienna Airport, the new warehouse in Sofia is the next important step in the expansion of our logistics capacities throughout Europe.”, Cargo-partner CEO Stefan Krauter says in the official press release of the company.
