Throughout all these years as a craftsman, Aleksander was himself also actively engaged in driving trucks.
With the onset of independence of Slovenia, the need for international transport arose. He sensed that a need for new types of transport was evident in the transportation business, i.e. a transport of perishable goods. That’s why he bought the first refrigerated semi-trailer in 1992 and started transporting fruit and vegetables from Italy, and in 1994, flowers from the Netherlands…
From year to year the volume of operations, the number of vehicles, the number of employees and of new business partners was increasing. There were problems as well during this time. This was a period of trouble with permits. To be able to carry out several transports, he was purchasing the most ecologically advanced vehicles of the Euro 3, 4 and 5 standard.
Each year SIGR Bizjak Transport was becoming more and more recognised in domestic as well as international transport. They had built their visibility with quality work, which was the joint result of each and every employee’s good work. Each of them had contributed his/her share to the chain of successes and growth of SIGR Bizjak Transport.
In view of the expansion and new transportation needs, the construction of a logistics centre started to be planned. Here, too, Aleksander encountered difficulties in obtaining a plot of land large enough for the realisation of his goals. In 2005, he bought a property in Jesenice and started preparing documentation for the construction of this centre, and in 2007, the construction began, followed by interior equipment installation and the opening of the new logistics centre in Jesenice.
A significant increase in the volume of work, vehicles and employees, the construction and relocation to new business premises are the main reasons for the restructuring of the company and the consequent establishment of the company under the name SIGR transport in skladiščenje d.o.o (SIGR transport and storage company), or in short, SIGR D.O.O.
The main goal of the company is the continuation of the good work, namely:
