Logwin Extends Collaboration with SPAR
Since the beginning of 2011, Logwin has also been responsible for operations at the new SPAR fresh goods distribution centre. Both facilities are located in Sveta Nedelja, around 15 kilometres west of Zagreb. Before this, Logwin had been the in-house logistics service provider at the previous facility in Jankomir for three and a half years.
The relocation has seen SPAR more than double its central distribution centre capacity: Instead of the previous 6,700 m2 in Jankomir, the premises in Sveta Nedelja offer around 16,000 m2. Around 6,500 food and non-food items are handled here.
The high bay warehouse with a ceiling height of 12 metres is located in a state-of-the-art logistics park. SPAR Croatia also moved into a 5,000 m2 refrigerated warehouse for dairy products, meat, fruit and vegetables on the same site in January 2011.
In both facilities Logwin has assumed the role of in-house logistics service provider, managing incoming goods inspection, storage, picking, retrieval, loading and value added services such as for instance labeling. Around 20,000 pallets are transhipped every month.
SPAR has been continually expanding its network of stores in Croatia in recent months: The retail group now operates 15 INTERSPAR and three SPAR supermarkets.
Mario Aschbacher, head of sales and key account management within the Logwin business segment Solutions, said: â€œOn-site logistics for our customers relies on flexibility and responsiveness. Optimal coordination and precision are the be all and end all.â€
