Material handling equipment, forklifts, and cleaning and lawnmowers necessary for operation were also purchased.
Zoll-Platz Kft., which provides customs brokerage and logistics services, built a new warehouse center near Szeged with EU support and an investment of about HUF 1.4 billion. HUF 313 million of the costs of the investment were covered by EU support.
As a result of problems in supply chains due to the pandemic, the need for local storage is increasing. Responding to these needs, Zoll-Platz Kft. decided to create a new logistics center on the outskirts of Szeged, next to Sándorfalvi út. The area is both close to the M43 and M5 highways and is bordered by a siding connected to the Szeged-Hódmezővásárhely railway line.
A 2,890-square-meter building made of sandwich panels was created, in which, in addition to areas suitable for storage, there are also office and social rooms. Three 50-kilowatt solar panel systems were installed on the building with five docks – suitable for loading trucks – which also cover the energy needs of the center and the electric charging stations to be installed in the parking lots. Material handling equipment, forklifts, and cleaning and lawnmowers necessary for the operation of the logistics center were also purchased.
Zoll-Platz Kft. has been operating as a customs agency since 1991. The full-scale customs administration company, which employs more than 120 employees, operates the only customs yard in the Csongrád-Csanád county and operates a branch office at the Uvar, Tompa, Röszke and Záhony border crossings, as well as providing warehousing and logistics services to its partners.
According to publicly available company data, the net sales revenue of Zoll-Platz Kft., which is directly and indirectly owned by Hungarian individuals, was HUF 2.01 billion last year, which is 8 percent less than in 2021. The company achieved a taxable profit of HUF 323 million in 2021, and HUF 678 million last year.
