Women Entrepreneurship. OMONIA TRANS at the top!

On January 28, the Municipalities of Pefki - Metamorfosi (Athens) and Ampelokipi - Menemeni (Thessaloniki) co-organized a successful teleconference on Women Entrepreneurship. The discussion was attended by a total of 16 Municipalities from all over Greece as well as agencies and organizations that promote female entrepreneurship. Mr. Adonis Georgiadis, the Greek Minister for Development and Investment, also participated.

OMONIA TRANS could not be missing from such a discussion. Dimitra Patsioti, Head of Sales, and second generation of OMONIA TRANS, had the opportunity to give a short speech in which she highlighted the unique relationship of our company with female entrepreneurship. OMONIA TRANS is one of the very few companies in Greece with a female CEO (and most importantly, in a male-dominated industry).

OMONIA TRANS would like to thank the hosts and coordinators of the discussion, Deputy Mayor of Pefki - Metamorfosi Mr. Panagiotis Ioannou and Deputy Mayor of Ampelokipi - Menemeni Mr. Manolis Ioannidis, for both the invitation and the flawless organization of the event.

It was a wonderful initiative and we hope for a follow-up!

The Canary Islands. Not only a tourist destination!

Islas Canarias. The Canary Islands or the Canaries. Very close to the African coast, an archipelago of 13 Spanish islands is home to 2 million people and the destination of more than 15 million tourists who want to enjoy summer 365 days a year.

But the Canary Islands are no longer just a tourist destination. It is also ours! Specifically, OMONIA TRANS now operates in the Canary Islands through the following Spanish cities:
  • Barcelona
  • Madrid
  • Valencia
  • Alicante
  • Seville 
Departures are made every Friday from our warehouses. For more information, please, contact the OMONIA TRANS Exports Department.

Medea. A picture is worth a thousand words.

In mid-February, one of the most intense storms of the last 40 years hit our country. The “Medea” weather system, with its polar temperatures, brought unprecedented snowfall in Attica lasting a record 36 hours and caused many problems in traffic and power throughout Greece as well as the fall of thousands of trees.

It is obvious that such bad weather could not leave the supply chain unaffected. Authorities imposed traffic restrictions on the main arteries of the country due to snowfall as well as a ban on sea travel from the port of Piraeus.

Although delays in the itineraries of the vehicles were inevitable for everyone, at OMONIA TRANS we managed to serve the supply chain during this difficult week in the way that we know: with organizing, planning, mobilizing our departments and, above all, with absolute safety for our drivers and warehouse people.
Kind regards, OMONIA TRANS team.
