 Bakar – Kukuljanovo business facility will improve the quality of postal services in western Croatia
 

 Zagreb, 4 February 2020 – Croatian Post begins the construction of a new Bakar-Kukuljanovo business facility worth more than 8 million euro. So far Croatian Post invested in facilities located in Zadar and Osijek, as well as built the New Sorting Centre in Velika Gorica. Now it turns to Primorje-Gorski Kotar and Istria counties for further investment. By building the new Kukuljanovo business facility, Croatian post will have four up-to-date hubs in its network of mail item sorting facilities.
The Minister of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure Oleg Butković pointed out: “Croatian Post is one of the largest companies in my portfolio that achieves success year after year. It concluded last year by opening the New Sorting Centre in Velika Gorica, while it starts this year with further investments in modernisation.”
“The new business facility in Bakar-Kukuljanovo zone is the latest hub and the final investment in the infrastructural development of our mail item processing network within this cycle. Having expanded and reorganised the logistics centre in Osijek, built the new logistics centre in Zadar, increased our capacities in Bjelovar and completed the largest investment in the history of Croatian Post – the New Sorting Centre in Velika Gorica – over the past three years, the Kukuljanovo facility represents the final item in the Croatian Post’s infrastructure that will facilitate our growth and development in a logistical sense, enabling us to provide even higher quality to the citizens”, the President of the Management Board of Croatian Post Ivan Čulo said during the cornerstone ceremony.
Kukuljanovo business facility is especially important for the entire western part of Croatia. The construction and entry into service of the Kukuljanovo mail item processing facility represents an important step in the improvement of quality and speed of providing services to all citizens gravitating to this area.
Once completed, the new business facility of Croatian Post in Kukuljanovo will encompass a total area of 5,000 sq m and feature its own solar power plant. Considering that the location of a facility is crucial for the improvement of quality and all logistics activities, it is important to point out that the new business facility of Croatian Post will be located at a position with excellent traffic connections. The facility is located in the immediate vicinity of Rijeka – Zagreb motorway and the Kvarner Road, with Rijeka’s centre only 10 kilometres away.
The Post2022 Strategy defined the development of core business as its most important goal, which would consist of investing into people, new technologies and the modernisation of mail item processing centres. The beginning of the construction of the fourth hub in the network of objects for mail items sorting rounds the cycle of investments into the modernisation of centres and fulfils the most important goal of the Post2022 Strategy.
