Serbian grocery retailer Univerexport has opened a new distribution and logistics centre in the city of Novi Sad.
The new centre, which covers 30,000 square metres, will employ 250 workers and the investment value is €16 million.
This is the biggest investment in the 27-year history of this company, according to the website of the Government of the Province of Vojvodina.
The president of the Univerexport Group, Vesna Vučurević, said that the new facility will primarily improve productivity and efficiency. According to her, the distribution centre will use state-of-the-art technology and distribute 16,000 products to retail stores.
Since the start of the year, Univerexport has opened six new supermarkets, of which two were in Novi Sad and one each in Petrovaradin, Indjija, Banatsko Novo Selo and Čurug.
