The development of the Rimi logistics center is an important project for us and confirms the trust of a large international group," said Ain Hanschmidt, CEO of Infortar.

All this creates prerequisites for the further development and growth of Rimi in Estonia and helps to serve the stores in the best way," said Vaido Padumäe, CEO of Rimi Estonia.
