Cargo-Partner plows ahead with logistics facility in Slovenia
Austrian logistics services company Cargo-Partner is on track to finish its Slovenia logistics facility – which began construction in June 2018 – by this summer. The 82,000-square-foot “logistics Center” 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 Viktor Kastelic, managing director of Cargo-Partner in Slovenia. 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.
