We are pleased to report Centralog are new members in Slovenia. Located in Koper, the company are well-established, starting business in 1991. They offer a full spectrum of project cargo logistics services and are one of the main ship and cargo handling agents in the region. Managing Director, Mr. Rok Strukelj is a board member of the Slovenian Association of Ship Agents & Brokers and they are also registered with the Slovenian Association of Freight Forwarders.
Mr. Rok Strukelj: "Centralog provides turn-key project cargo transport services in South East Europe. Our project group is specialised in the overseas transportation and handling of OOG and large breakbulk shipments. Over the years we have managed several high-value projects by offering our customers world class services and at the same time lowering the total transport costs by analysing alternative transport routes and thinking outside the box."
"An example of such a solution was a wind tower project originating in Germany and destined for South Italy. Traditionally the standard route would be a direct truck from the production facility to the site but by analysing the route, we identified two major issues. The first was related to cost as transporting the larger parts of the tower sections throughout the whole of the Italian peninsula would not come cheap. The second obstacle which was identified was related to the time required for obtaining the necessary road permits in Italy.
Our solution was simple and effective – trucking from Germany through Austria into Slovenia where the towers were transhipped at the port of Koper onto a chartered vessel. This cut down costs by about 28% and considerably shortened the time required for the towers to be delivered to the site. The largest section measured approximately 22.00 x 4.30 x 4.45m and weighted 42tns as photographed above."
