“The pandemic pointed out to us the importance of transport and taught us how a small delay in the flow of goods can cause big problems and supply gaps. For that reason, we supported the Gaia organization, with which we share the same values, which in cooperation with Belgrade historian Jelena Živkovic and artist Katarina Stankovic Bjegovic, designed a project that best represents our purpose, the world of transport and the importance of its innovations in everyday life, ” said Roland Raith, Country Manager of Gebrüder Weiss Serbia.
The project is realized at a location that combines modern with creative, and through an interactive exhibition, with the aim of presenting the history of transport, dating from the first vehicles, created 900,000 years ago, to modern achievements and to the mobility of tomorrow, in a modern, interesting and educational way.
As one of the most important companies in the field of transport and logistics, with a tradition of more than 500 years, Gebrüder Weiss is known for the values it nurtures, which are independence, sustainability, commitment and service excellence. Through this project, they want to present their heritage, which has made Gebrüder Weiss a successful and prosperous company in 35 countries worldwide.
