As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, in early 2021, the Osijek company Saponia will begin building a brand new, modernly equipped logistics and distribution centre that will provide adequate logistical support to the long-term development of its sales and distribution business. Quality infrastructure is a prerequisite for increasing business efficiency for this well known enterprise, and in order to achieve this, two investment projects have been launched – the modernisation of the existing Saponia warehouse and the construction of a completely new logistics and distribution centre in the eastern industrial zone of Zagreb.

The first part of the project – the reconstruction of the existing storage space – has now been completed, and over recent days a building permit for the construction of a new LDC has been obtained. With its completion in April this year, the Osijek company Saponia will have 4,500 pallet spaces available for high-rack warehousing and modern storage mechanisation, which will enable the faster flow of goods, the increased punctuality of deliveries and overall reduced operating costs.

“When designing the Zagreb logistics and distribution centre, care was taken to meet the highest performance standards, and part of the concept is the energy efficiency of the building, which will contribute to solar panels and energy-saving lighting. The investment in the reconstruction, construction and equipping of the LDC worth 8.74 million kuna will be able to meet all of the specific storage requirements of both the production programme of Saponia and the products Kandita and Koestlin, the sale and distribution of which have been contracted since this year,” said dr.sc . Dajana Mrcela, President of the Management Board of Saponia.

Namely, out of 4,124 m2 of the total space of the new LDC, almost a quarter will be conditioned space that ensures the maximum preservation of the quality of Kandit’s and Koestlin’s products. In the new space, in addition to the warehouse, new office premises of the sales and logistics department will be located, which will enable the more efficient organisation of business processes. Almost 40,000 unloadings will be performed annually from the Zagreb logistics centre at the points of sale of their partners. Therefore, the vehicle fleet has been expanded to include refrigerators due to the specific transport requirements of Kandit’s and Koestlin’s products, and the Osijek company Saponia can now boast of having 108 trucks at its disposal.

“With this business move, Saponia, together with Kandit and Koestlin, has confirmed its commitment to raising the level of quality of its business and improving its services to its partners. This partnership is a logical continuation of the efforts of these companies aimed at sustainable development and ensuring better operability and profitability,” added dr.sc. Diana Mrcela.
