Sînziana Pardhan, Managing Director P3 in Romania, says: “The collaboration with SLS Cargo started in 2020 and has gradually developed over these two years. Despite the volatile economic climate, it has become a trusted partnership, through which we have constantly tried to find solutions together to meet both their expansion and operational efficiency needs. We are honored to be part of their vision and success story and we would like to thank them for the constructive approach they have always displayed and for the vote of confidence they gave to the P3 Romania team and our park at km 13.”

The integrated service offer includes transport by all modes (road, rail, air and sea), as well as storage and handling services. This created a competitive positioning that allowed them to take full advantage of the rise in consumption and the growth of the domestic market, as well as the changes in logistics chains amid the pandemic.

In 2020 we made the choice to relocate to P3 Logistic Parks A1 with the intention of developing a strategic partnership with a leading company in the field. The collaboration so far has confirmed the choice: we have found in P3 a business partner and real support in identifying solutions for our space and operational optimization requests. We are happy that through this new expansion we are consolidating our presence in the P3 Bucharest A1 park, which becomes our main base for logistics operations.”
