International transport and logistics provider cargo-partner has officially launched construction work on the third warehouse hall at its iLogistics Center in Dunajská Streda, Slovakia.
Upon completion, cargo-partner will create 60 to 70 additional jobs at the new facility, as the expansion will almost double the storage capacity from the current 27,600 to 50,000 pallet spaces.
cargo-partner has been operating in Slovakia for 30 years and is one of the most successful freight forwarding providers in the country.
The company earned a turnover of nearly €140 million in 2022 and currently employs more than 200 logistics specialists across its branch offices in Bratislava, Dunajská Streda, Žilina, and Košice.
In operation since 2012, the iLogistics Center in Dunajská Streda has been gradually expanding to meet growing customer demand for logistics solutions.
Its previous expansion in 2020 increased the warehouse capacity to 18,200m².
The construction of the third hall marks the fourth and final phase of the project, bringing the storage capacity of the logistics complex to 34,300m² on a site of 60,000m².
cargo-partner states that the new Class A warehouse building was designed with an emphasis on energy efficiency.
It will feature a racking system with 22,400 pallet spaces spread over 14,600m², as well as a structurally separated area of 1,500m² that can serve as a dust-free warehouse or a rework zone.
The facility will include 22 loading ramps and two drive-in gates for efficient loading and unloading, plus there are plans to install a second KLT washing machine in addition to the one at the existing facility.
Stefan Krauter, founder and chief executive of cargo-partner, said: “Our Slovak team is a top performer in our group, and I am glad they have recognised and taken advantage of Dunajská Streda’s potential as a vital intermodal hub, turning it into a thriving logistics centre.
“With the addition of a third warehouse hall, we are continuing our success story with yet another prime logistics location in Dunajská Streda.
“The expansion will be managed by the Central Eastern European logistics real estate specialist ATL.”
