Tallink opens a new logistics center in Maardu

The listed Estonian shipper Tallink Grupp opened on Jan.14, 2016 a new logistics centre in the town of Maardu near Tallinn.

The area of the centre is 14,500 square meters and it has 12 kilometres of shelves. It is able to release a million product lines and send out 2,500 trailers of goods annually. The centre will receive 5,000 trucks and 100,000 pallets a year.

The new facility creates 20 additional jobs and will employ up to 60 people in all.

The construction started at the end of April 2015.

The works were commissioned by Infor Invest, a holding of Tallink Grupp major owner Infortar.
