Ducal d.o.o.

The Ducal logistics hub was founded in July 2011, and in 2015 became the global logistics centre for Calzedonia: all the brand’s products ordered online or purchased in stores pass through this facility. The hub is located in Croatia, in the Jalžabet industrial district, just a few kilometres from Varaždin. This area was chosen for a question of proximity: located nearby are the Calzedonia brand factories, in constant communication with the hub in order to continually boost efficiency.

Our people

Calzedonia offers plenty of growth opportunities everywhere for people prepared to challenge themselves and to develop personal and professional skills, and this guarantees valid employment opportunities for the local area: in Ducal, only two of the company’s employees are from outside Croatia. Since its foundation, the hub has brought huge advantages for the people of Varaždin, guaranteeing its employees – 70% of whom are women – independence and financial security. The hub also supports the community, by offering stable employment to people with disabilities, 50 to date, which earned it a nomination as “Employer of the Year for People with Disabilities for 2018”.

Respect for the environment

Calzedonia’s commitment to the environment is also present and supported in Ducal. Since 2014, over 5 million cardboard packages have been recycled and re-used, and in the early months of 2021, more than 18,000 trees were planted near the warehouse. As regards lighting in the plant, all the lights use LED technology, guaranteeing a 50% saving on the energy required. The plant is also committed to reducing all plastic materials by 70%, as well as the installation of a system of photovoltaic panels.
As regards certifications, in July 2019, Ducal received GRS (Global Recycle Standard) certification for a number of Calzedonia products made using recycled materials, and in 2021, the hub was also awarded “Known Consignor” certification for cargo transport by air.

Benefits for employees

Working for Ducal also offers a series of advantages, such as free foreign language courses for employees. Among the other actions in favour of employees is a guaranteed Christmas bonus in December, also extended to employees’ children and known as the “Santa Claus Bonus”.

The people who work for us have always been our most valuable resource, and no presentation of our factories would be complete without a word from them. Here are the stories of those who produce our items every day:

Aleksandra

My name is Aleksandra, and I live in Štefanec, a little village near Varaždin, with my husband and two children. I’ve been working for Calzedonia since 2012, in the goods receipt office. My department manages the incoming materials and transfers them to the warehouse; products arrive...

in our logistics hub from all over the world, and we’re the first to enter the item codes into the system so they can be sorted in the right place.
When I talk about my job, I always place the accent on how efficient Ducal is. Our organisation allows us to constantly maintain full control over the activities, timescales to be complied with and technologies used. I could no longer imagine a working environment where objectives and tasks are not clearly defined, and in general, an environment that’s not highly organised like ours.
The word I’d used to describe our company is “dynamic”: there’s always something going on in Calzedonia. By interacting with the other departments in the plant, we contribute to this growth and to improving the work we do every day!

in charge of the Ducal control and quality department for the last eight. In Calzedonia, everyone has the chance to make progress if they do their best and keep up to date with the latest technologies, putting forward new ideas and at the same time working on themselves and their own interpersonal relations.
I’m proud to work for Calzedonia and to be part of a leading international fashion brand. For me, working for the company means being part of a splendid story in the fashion word, and enhancing that story every day with our commitment to the company.
