As Jadrolinija, the leading ferry company in the Adriatic has been paying special attention to the renewal of the fleet in the last few years by introducing new ships and investing in existing ones, in 2018 the Jadrolinija fleet became richer for the newly built catamaran “Jelena“.
Also, during 2020, we introduced two new ships into the fleet, the ferries Ugljan and Faros, and the third, Lošinj, is expected in the coming months. Fleet renewal is a key part of Jadrolinija’s development strategy, for which significant funds have been allocated so far, made possible thanks to the positive business results of past record seasons. The crisis caused by the coronavirus epidemic affected the entire economy and no one could be fully prepared for it. The crisis has particularly affected the tourism and transport sectors, activities that are at the core of Jadrolinija’s business. We hope that 2021 will bring a renewal of the tourist season and business results that will enable us to continue the development of the fleet.David Sopta, President of the Management Board of Jadrolinija
In 2021, Jadrolinija expects to continue investing in the digital transformation of its business.
In the past four years, Jadrolinija has been investing in both internal digitalization of business processes and digitalization aimed at passengers. It invests in means of communication with passengers and increasing internal business efficiency, such as payroll automation, digital monitoring of procurement processes, automation of bookkeeping processes and automation of processes on ships.David Sopta
When it comes to improving communication, in 2021 a new website of the state shipping company will be released and it will continue to improve the sales channel, user interface of Jadrolinija 2Go card and other projects that, Jadrolinija believes, will make passengers especially happy.
All of the above will contribute to Jadrolinija’s long-term goals, more efficient and modern operations and increased quality of services.
In the year ahead, we will continue to operate responsibly through the support of local island communities, but also through the recognition of national moments in which our help is needed. It is precisely this responsibility that we have sought to practice by providing free transport to help areas affected by the earthquake.David Sopta
