The change in buying behaviour has brought new demands for companies’ logistics solutions. Consumers’ transition from brick-and-mortar stores to the internet has multiplied the volume of goods transported, which means that the management and profitability of consumer distribution require more efficient warehouse and picking operations. Collico-LogXellence responds to the growing demand for e-commerce logistics and the changing needs by bringing new operating models to the market based on its strong industry and technology expertise.

The knowledge and experience of a dynamic and development-oriented company is reflected in the results. With automation and flexible system solutions, the e-commerce and food product logistics company has seen an impressive growth curve. During the past year, the combined revenue of operations increased from five million euros to 12 million euros, and in the current year the revenue is estimated to exceed 20 million euros.
