With the construction of the new iLogistics Center in Ljubljana quickly progressing, a further growth spurt is on the horizon for the rapidly expanding transport and info-logistics provider in Europe.

The construction of cargo-partner’s iLogistics Center in Ljubljana, which officially began in June, is fully on schedule. In November, the topping out of the high rack warehouse was completed. In the administrative building, the paneling of the second floor has been finished and preparations are underway for the third floor. The service areas – boiler room, electrical service room, engine room – are nearly completed, and amenities such as fire sprinkler systems, heating and electrical installations are currently being installed. In the cross-dock and block storage area, the foundation has been finished and the first concrete columns have been placed. All building works are thus well underway for the planned opening in summer 2019.

Located directly next to Ljubljana Airport, approximately 20 minutes from the city center, the iLogistics Center will provide 25,000 m² of storage space, create over 30 new jobs in the first stage and will strongly contribute to the further development of the region. This contribution was recently honored with the Invest Slovenia FDI Award in the category ‘Logistics Center/Hub’ given out by SPIRIT Slovenia on November 27, 2018. Since 2006, SPIRIT Slovenia has been awarding the best foreign investors who have generated outstanding results in the previous year and made significant contributions to the development of the Slovenian economy. Organized in close cooperation with Slovenia's Ministry of Economic Development and Technology, the FDI Award is part of Slovenia’s comprehensive strategy to gain foreign direct investments.
