A notable promotion of the Free Zone Pirot in Thessaloniki

The new fair event dedicated to the transport and logistics industry - Logistics&Transports Thessaloniki Expo 2024 gathered 120 exhibitors from Greece and the Balkan countries. Services and products were exhibited by transport and logistics companies, ports, forwarding companies, railway and road operators, the latest warehouse equipment, IT logistics systems and commercial vehicles were presented.

On March 11 and 12, 2024, the representatives of the Free Zone Pirot presented logistics services, business opportunities in the Free Zone Pirot regime, and held a number of meetings with the participants of the fair in order to, in cooperation with the Port of Thessaloniki, logistics and transport companies, offer more competitive services to users of the Free Zone Pirot.

The great interest of participants was in the benefits of doing business in the Free Zone Pirot, which enable investors to make significant savings and efficiency in business, whether in production or trade, what makes Free Zone Pirot, as a transporter and logistician, unique at the Fair.

The logistics and transport fair in Thessaloniki was completed by the LOGI.C 24 conference, which was held within the fair, where the opportunities for doing business in the Free Zone Pirot regime were presented. The presentation was held on April 11, 2024, as part of the panel "Creating a strategic plan for logistics and transport in the Balkans and Southeastern Europe", where, using the example of the Free Zone Pirot, transport and logistics solutions were presented along with the business model of companies without customs and VAT, which significantly facilitates the flow of goods and money and makes significant savings in business. Like the stand, the presentation of the  Free Zone Pirot aroused the interest of many conference participants.

The Port of Thessaloniki, with a history of 2,300 years, has been designated as a port of international interest, and by using the Port of Thessaloniki and establishing good connections, they could achieve significant cost savings in the transportation of goods, either in the delivery or shipment of goods for the users of the Free Zone Pirot. When it comes to the cooperation of Greek and Serbian companies, the concept of doing business through a free zone is not new, it dates back to 1923, when the first free zone of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes was established in the Port of Thessaloniki on an area of 9.4 ha. Trade with brotherly Greece has always functioned well, and in the coming period we expect even greater cooperation, taking into account the changes in supply chains - said Vladimir Ilić, CEO of Free Zone Pirot.

The stand of the Free Zone Pirot was also visited by the mayor of Pirot, Mr. Vladan Vasić, and he pointed out that the appearance of the Free Zone Pirot help us to establish contact with transport and logistics companies from Greece in order to provide the best and most competitive transport and logistics services to the users of the Zone, as well as opportunities to attract Greek companies.
