Croatian Post has opened a sorting center in Velika Gorica, which according to the post will enable it to provide a faster and more efficient delivery service to its customers.
The HRK350m (US$52m) modern logistics center represents a large investment in Croatian Post’s future. It was developed to respond to and ensure the post can meet the needs of the growing e-commerce market.
More than 1,500 employees work at the sorting center in the various departments, including the sorting office, parcel logistics, IT and data.
The center’s high shelving warehouse has a capacity of 8,000 pallet locations and total load capacity of 6,400 tons. The automated parcel sorting machine can handle 15,000 shipments per hour, with parcel weights ranging from 100g to 30kg.
The official opening of the center was attended by Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenković. He said, “This project, which is worth more than HRK350m, integrates business operations from four locations in Zagreb and ensures more efficient and technologically more advanced parcel processing. I congratulate the board and all the employees of Croatian Post. I believe that you will continue to increase the quality of work of Croatian Post and the services for Croatian citizens and the economy in both operative and financial ways.”
Ivan Čulo, CEO of Croatian Post, added, “For my team, this is the realization of the largest investment that we set out in the Post2022 Development Strategy and a foundation on which we keep building the development of business operations, logistics and people. We continue working as set out in the strategy, by investing in the Croatian economy, raising our employees’ salaries and the productivity of all the processes in the company with the aim of taking a position in the Croatian market and also positioning Croatian Post in the whole region”
