The growth of foreign trade and the development of transportation infrastructure have marked 2016. The total merchandise trade of Serbia with the world increased by 7.6% by October 2016, with the export jumping by 10.1% and the import increasing by 5.7% compared to last year. The export, along with investments, has become the key factor of the economic growth of Serbia, influencing in turn the employment of capacities of transportation, forwarding and logistics companies.
The growth and development of these companies might certainly be bigger with adequate infrastructural capacities. This year has been marked by works on the road network, modernization of the railway and water transportation projects.
The current topics and great interest by our readers caused us to turn our attention once again to the sector of transport and logistics. The Special Edition Newsletter “Transport and Logistics – Efficient Support to Business”
