Brnik, 28 September (STA) - The logistics centre launched by Cargo-Partner at the Jože Pučnik Airport Ljubljana last September has nearly reached full capacity, the Austrian logistics group has said, announcing plans for expansion.
Cargo-Partner already mentioned a likely expansion when opening the centre, but it was believed then that current capacity would suffice for five to seven years.
Benefiting from the increased demand for air cargo transport due to Covid-19, the group saw recorded results in April, May and July.
More than than 300% growth was recorded this year in the storage and logistics segment and 80% in air transport.
Cargo-Partner generated EUR 821 million revenue at group level in 2019, EUR 68 million more than the year before.
The group employs 3,150 people globally, about 150 more than a year ago. Slightly over 100 people work at the Brnik centre in Slovenia.
The Brnik logistics centre, a EUR 28 million investment, has 25,000 square metres of storage space and another 4,000 square metres of office space.
