Croatian Post’s Biggest Investment: New Sorting Centre Attracts Amazon

Lauren Simmonds

The location near MZLZ “Franjo Tuđman” (Zagreb International Airport) and the motorway was strategically selected, and construction on Croatian Post’s new sorting centre initially began back in 2017.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 24th of September, 2019, the largest investment in the history of Croatian Post (Hrvatska Pošta), an ultra modern sorting centre in which a massive 345 million kuna has been invested, and it was finally opened yesterday in Velika Gorica, near the City of Zagreb.

Within the complex, which covers approximately 35,000 square metres in total, the sorting room itself occupies 11,000 square metres and packages will be ejected at an impressive rate of 15,000 pieces per hour. The moving on of Croatian Post’s infamous ”snail mail” procedures isn’t the only bit of good news, either.

Of course, the creation of such a large centre and the need for a fast pace helps the economy by creating job possibilities, and not just one or two of them. At first, 1,400 employees will work at Croatian Post’s new Velika Gorica-based facility, and then that figure will gradually rise up to 1,800 employees.

As previously mentioned, the centre’s location near Zagreb’s increasingly busy Franjo Tuđman Airport and the motorway was of course strategically chosen, and the construction of the centre first began in 2017. As was first reported in July, this centre is one of the reasons why Croatian Post could earn even more ”brownie points” on the national, regional and even global scale and foresees the possibility of cooperation with a giant like Amazon.

This global retailer is reportedly considering contracts Croatian Post for some form of collaboration for shipping and logistics support on the Croatian market, and potentially on the entire regional market. The Amazon expert team also visited the brand new sorting centre in Velika Gorica back during the summer.
