Orchard transport base on the road to development
Girteka’s transport base in Sady, near Poznań, was launched in 2022. It is the largest and most modern base in Girteka’s logistics network and also one of the largest facilities of its kind in Europe. It is responsible for serving customers in Western European markets and providing technical services for Girteka’s fleet of trucks. The facility, which has an operational area of 22,43,000 square meters, includes a modern service facility, extensive driver facilities, and an administration area. It is also home to the Driver Academy, one of Girteka’s main driver training centers. Currently, nearly 6,000 drivers and 400 mechanics work there, with up to 4,000 trucks being serviced here. The transport base plays a key role in the company’s international expansion.
Girteka has been present in Poland since 2019. In addition to the transport base near Poznań, the Polish branch of ClassTrucks, a Group company, operates in Rawa Mazowiecka.
