Chinese tech company Huawei plans to set up a regional logistic hub in Slovenia for 19 markets of Central and Southeastern Europe, which will necessitate the construction of new warehousing facilities adjacent to the Jože Pučnik Ljubljana Airport.

The company said this meant that the transport of its goods for 13 EU and six non-EU countries would be redirected to the port of Koper and Ljubljana Airport. The investment is valued at roughly €9 million.

According to Beata Bogadi, Huawei’s customs compliance manager for Europe, the decision shows “how attractive Slovenia is in the logistic sense,” adding that “Huawei recognises the strategic position of the Koper port, the qualified staff and services in Slovenia.” (Sebastijan R. Maček | STA.si)
