“As a company with unique expertise for the management and optimisation of complex supply chains, we are pleased to support Serbia’s projects to industrialise and develop foreign trade. Efficient logistics processes make a great contribution to GNP-growth of a country“, said Luc Nadal, CEO Gefco group.
Establishing a subsidiary in Serbia, one of the most dynamic national economies of this region, Gefco strengthens its positioning in Central Europe, having been present in this zone before. After Romania and Greece, Serbia is the third-largest market economy in this region, offering an ideal geographic location between Eastern Europe and the Balkans.
“Its geographic location makes Serbia a strategically important country for Gefco: We have been cooperating with local players in the course of our international material flow. Now we want to further develop the potential of this country and the region by interacting more closely with local stakeholders“, explained Lachezar Roubchev, General Manager Gefco Serbia.
In the past years, the country has attracted investments in the segments of steel production, industrial products, chemicals and automotive, and signed free trade agreements with the European Union, Russia, Turkey and Central European countries, in order to promote its economic attractiveness.
Gefco Serbia will offer the entire portfolio of the Gefco group. The subsidiary will implement ready-to-use solutions, specifically adapted to the Serbian market, such as the movement of goods with the European Union or third countries (Russia, Turkey), time-sensitive solutions and transport systems on the railway between China and Germany, taking a transit time of 20 days.
