Huawei considers new regional logistics hub in Slovenia

Chinese company Huawei plans to set up a regional logistics hub in Slovenia for some 19 markets of central and south-eastern Europe. Thus, the flow of its goods through the port of Koper will increase and new storage facilities will need to be built near Ljubljana airport.

The company said this meant that the transport flows of its goods for 13 EU and six non-EU countries would be redirected to the port of Koper and the airport in Brnik near Ljubljana. The value of the investment decision is estimated at some EUR 9 million with potential for further growth.

According to Beata Bogadi, Huawei‘s customs compliance manager for Europe, Huawei recognises the strategic position of the Koper port, the qualified staff and services in Slovenia.

Huawei already transports about 185 000 cubic metres of cargo from China to Hungary and to other European markets through Luka Koper. The new logistics hub in Slovenia is to cut the delivery time of goods for customers in the EU.
