Raben Group founded the company Raben Logistics Romania SRL in June and simultaneously opened two departments in Romania. The company group is now present in the west of the country, with departments in the capital city, Bucharest, and Arad. In this way, Raven wants to further expand its market position in Eastern Europe.
The two sites will initially be used as cross-docking warehouses. Each of the branches offers 1,500 m² of covered warehouse area for general cargo. They allow a nationwide distribution within 24 hours. In addition, two regular services will initially be established to Hungary and Poland.
“Many of our customers are currently investing in Romania and we believe that the trade exchange will further improve. With our experience in Eastern Europe, we can support the development of our business partners very well and therefore give them competitive advantage,” says Valentin Storoj, Managing Director of Raben Logistics Romania. Agreement was reached about the location Bucharest as capital of the country with high purchasing power and the location Arad because of the good connection to the western European motorway network and the nearby border to Hungary.
With over 85 years of experience, the Raben Group is one of the leading logistics companies in the markets of Central and Eastern Europe. With over 9,000 employees it offers comprehensive logistics solutions in road, sea and air freight transportation as well as global supply chain management concepts. In 2015, the Group generated sales of over EUR 1 billion. The Raben Group operates more than 1 million sqm of storage space in many European countries. Its fleet comprises 6,600 vehicles.
