New Year’s Cake 2023. The warehouse wins the lucky coin!

Our warehouse people, like superheroes, win the battle against time, every day. They win our hearts with their diligence, hard work and selflessness. They even win against the very elements of nature. And sometimes, yes, they win the lucky coin of the New Year’s cake!

As you probably understood, the event of the OMONIA TRANS “vasilopita” (New Year’s Cake) is now a thing of the past. In a beautiful, family atmosphere, our company gathered at our offices in Lykovrysi, remembered nice moments from the past year and exchanged wishes for the new one.

The high point of the event, was of course the cutting of the pie (with slices also for our people in Thessaloniki), with the lucky winner this year being an employee in our warehouse in Athens.

We wish him, to always be lucky, from the bottom of our hearts!


 Act of Kindness by OMONIA TRANS

For OMONIA TRANS, Corporate Social Responsibility does not mean a few isolated actions or “fireworks”. It means constant interest and permanent commitment to fellow human beings, the environment, society, and vulnerable groups.
In this behalf, in February we actively participated in the work of the charity organization Act of Kindness.

To be precise, we supported the charity’s social grocery store by collecting and donating essential items such as food, baby items, creams, canned food, non-perishable food, baby and adult diapers, stationery and cleaning products.

The Act of Kindness charity organization is based in Thessaloniki, and has been created by sensitized people who wish to actively participate in the creation of a better world.

The organization supports children and families facing livelihood problems or health problems.


The economic aftershocks of the earthquake in Turkey and Syria.

The death toll from the earthquake in Turkey and Syria is terrifying. The energy released was estimated at about 500 megatons of TNT, or 33,000 Hiroshima atomic bombs, while the destruction is the largest event to occur in the neighboring country since the 1930 earthquake in Erzincan of eastern Turkey.

The number of victims has now unfortunately exceeded 50,000, with almost 90% of them (44,000) in Turkey. However, the price of the earthquake on the Turkish economy is also expected to be heavy. According to estimates by the Turkish Business Confederation (Turkonfed), the damage to the economy is calculated at 84 billion dollars, or about 10% of the Turkish GDP.

The supply chain could not be unaffected by the fury of the earthquake. Main road arteries have been destroyed, while the large fire that broke out in the port of Alexandretta, led several companies to announce significant delays or even cancellations of deliveries.

As far as our country is concerned, the movement of support towards Turkey and the so-called “earthquake diplomacy” are currently contributing to the creation of a climate of understanding and cooperation between the 2 countries.

Let’s hope that this time, the climate of understanding will last longer than that of 1999 (again after devastating earthquakes) which, through no fault of Greece, faded and vanished.

Kind regards, OMONIA TRANS team.
