Green logistics is a concept that involves efficiently carrying out logistics tasks without causing harm to the environment.

Green logistics is a concept that involves efficiently carrying out logistics tasks without causing harm to the environment. One of the pioneers in introducing this form of logistics is Milšped, which this year started a project to build a solar power plant on the roofs of its warehouses as part of the green transition project co-financed by the Government of Japan and implemented by UNDP Serbia. The solar panels at the logistics center in Krnješevci have a capacity of 600KW, and an annual reduction in electricity consumption from the grid is planned at around 34%. The indirect impact of reducing greenhouse gas emissions annually is 774.94 tons of CO2e.

Milšped is extremely proud of its project, which represents the only container terminal in the southern and central parts of Serbia. It is known as the MBOX Terminal Niš, a rail-road intermodal terminal located in Popovac, in the new industrial zone near Niš. Built according to the latest European standards, this terminal has the capacity to handle around 50,000 TEUs per year.

The terminal has a capacity for storing more than 2,700 containers, as well as a dedicated parking area for trucks and cars. It also features modern Reach stacker machinery for handling operations, while the NAVIS Terminal Operating System records the real-time location of each container. Over the next year, the plan includes the construction of two large warehouses, each covering an area of 15,000 m2. This will make the logistics center one of the largest in the region, undoubtedly opening up a range of new, more efficient logistics solutions.

When it comes to the implementation of robotic technology in warehouse operations, Milšped has become a pioneer in the domestic market. The robotic warehouse in Krnješevci is now operational, with the goal of better fulfilling customer requirements, which are always in focus. The automation of warehouses aims to provide solutions to challenges such as supply chain disruptions, capacity constraints, rising fuel prices, compliance with regulations, and labor shortages. Robots can work 24/7, increasing productivity and speed in fulfilling customer demands, thereby reducing labor costs and errors. Thanks to the robots, Milšped can store up to three times more goods in the same space, while improving safety and health at work. Clients can expect comprehensive market supply access, 24/7 logistics support, improved inventory visibility for online platforms, and more efficient management of reverse logistics. The automation of warehouses aligns with the principles of responsible business practices and sustainable development, confirming Milšped's status as a market leader in this field.

In the automotive logistics segment, Milšped AML, a part of the Milšped Group, has successfully met the demands of multinational companies by providing vehicle and spare parts transportation and distribution services throughout Europe, with a focus on Serbia, Slovenia, and Germany. Milšped has initiated a project to shift logistics flows from roads to railways in line with trends and client demands, considering that rail transport offers many advantages over road transport, including reducing road congestion and CO2 emissions. With a fleet of 200 wagons and specialists in organizing rail transport, Milšped provides comprehensive logistics solutions in the European market.

Milšped continuously works on improving environmental protection, social issues, and corporate governance in its business processes. The establishment of an ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) strategy project has begun, with objectives aligned with the ultimate goal of achieving improvements in these areas through continuous progress and alignment with high partner standards.
