To date “Slavutich”, Carlsberg Group is considering proposals for the location of the site to build a terminal in the southern region of Ukraine. The reason for expanding warehouses is the growth of the company’s sales and the need to supply products to the territory of Moldova.

At present the company owns three factories in Kyiv, Lviv and Zaporizhzhya. Immediate deliveries from their warehouses cover the territory of Ukraine completely. In addition, the company cooperates with 15 distributors in the southern region of the country successfully. However, there was a need to expand logistic infrastructure because of increasing sales in this region as well as in connection with the acquisition of the company Carlsberg in Moldova.

It is assumed that the complex will become the point of redistribution of goods between the southern region of Ukraine and Moldova and will be provided with the necessary auxiliary services and equipped with a sufficient amount of handling equipment. Project of the complex involves a high level of energy efficiency and will provide enhanced environmental safety of storing beer and beverages manufactured by the company.

“Slavutich”, Carlsberg Group also considers the site of the logistic terminal as a base for a new brewery which can be built in the coming years in case of positive market dynamics and increase of the company’s share.

In connection with the construction project the company evaluates offers on the location of the object the exclusive advisor of searching which is the company Colliers — the world leader in providing real estate services.

Peter Chernyshov, Chief Executive at “Slavutich”, Carlsberg Group: “We have already approved the decision to implement the investment project on the construction of a logistic terminal in the southern region. Our products require special temperature storage as they are produced from natural ingredients. Due to the fact that our sales are growing steadily and the warehouse capacity of the breweries is not sufficient to cover the southern region and Moldova it was decided to create a separate terminal in the south. We are considering proposals for the location of the object so far because it is important for us to build it in such a way as to cover the territory of Moldova promptly and to the sufficient extent as well. We will calculate the capacity of the terminal depending on the location and our needs. The project is in progress so far and it is early to discuss the amount of investments. Perhaps we will build a new brewery on the basis of this terminal in the future.”
