Transfera’s new logistics centre (TLC1) opened ceremonially on 11th September 2022. with more than 250 associates and friends of the company in attendance. This investment, worth over €14 million, was realised in a record nine-month period, in the industrial zone in Novi Banovci, on the outskirts of Belgrade. This massive logistics centre forms part of a much larger scale project: Transfera Logistics Park (TLP).
This state-of-the-art centre is equipped with the most sophisticated technology for warehouse operations – the Warehouse Management System (WMS). TLC1 also applies the highest FM global standards and the Customs administration is present in all operations. Another top priority met from the outset was the use of renewable energy sources.
TLC1 covers over 30,000m2 of space, with 3,000m2 of office space intended for administrative purposes and the remaining 27,000m2 mostly divided between the warehousing area and accompanying facilities for rest and recreation, such as restaurants, cafes, staff canteens and fitness tracks. Transfera currently has over 360 employees and will have an estimated turnover of €100 million by year’s end.
“During this extremely challenging period, and in the midst of current events that have impacted transport and logistics worldwide, we managed to construct one of the largest logistics centres in the region in record time. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the entire team for the hard work shown during this period, without which these results wouldn’t have been possible. Our plans don’t stop here. Our goal is to continue developing and expanding our business to other markets, as well as to continuation construction of the logistics park,” said Transfera CEO Duško Radović, speaking at the opening ceremony.
