Maersk strengthens its footprint in Croatia with the opening of its first own multi-customer warehouse in the country. Located less than 20km from the port of Rijeka in the northern part of the country, it ensures fast delivery times and efficient cargo handling. Recently, Maersk has also opened its third Warehousing & Distribution (W&D) facility in Dubai, UAE, which is also its first cold store in the country.
This modern 12,000 sq m facility is another link in Maersk’s global network of 473 warehouses across all continents for resilient and flexible end-to-end supply chain solutions offered to customers. The warehouse became operational with global retail brand Maersk & Spencer as its first customer.
“We we are very proud to launch our first own warehouse and enhance our logistics offering on the Croatian market. Our strategy of providing integrated logistic solutions gets further reaffirmed and we look forward to the new opportunities this will bring to our customers”, shares Ivić Vodopija, East Adriatic and Central Europe Country Manager at Maersk.
The new warehouse is a Class A type, with high security standards and is designed to minimise greenhouse gas emissions thanks to features like solar roof or LED lights reducing energy consumption. The facility has flexible pallet capacity and offers end-to-end solutions including Customs services, as well a wide range of additional value-adding services available. Additional benefit is the proximity of the future deepwater terminal, Rijeka Gateway.
