IN SHORT

Slovakia may become European logistics centre

SLOVAKIA could become a logistics centre serving the entire region of Central Europe, which numbers more than 113 million consumers.

The number of logistics parks in Slovakia are expected to double by 2010, according to market research agency Terno, as quoted by the business daily Hospodárske noviny.

Logistics centres in Slovakia took off between 2004 and 2005, while the country's soaring auto sector and spinoff industries will bring further logistics centres.

Terno analyst Ľubomír Drahovský said that in 2005 Slovakia had 16 logistics centres that each offer over 3,000 square metres of storage area. Most are located in Western Slovakia near Senec and in the Záhorie region, as well as Nitra and Považie. Others lie between Prešov and Košice near the border between Slovakia and Hungary.

The largest logistics park is near the D1 highway and the Trnava car plant of PSA Peugeot Citroen, with an area of 180,000 square metres.
