Proizvodnja drvenih paleta, topolovog furnira i šper ploča: Visa-Prom d.o.o. Kanjiža


Visa-prom ltd

Industrial manufacture of pallets, manufacture of veneers, plywood, and composite pallet blocks.


We have a deep respect for people and for the environment, and we abide by laws and rules. Planned processes and professionalism are at the core of all our activities. 

Visa-Prom DOO has been successfully operating on the territory of Serbia for over twenty years, out of three business centers located in Kanjiža, Subotica and Horgoš. It employs 260 people of all educational profiles.

After years of wholesale and retail operations, which mainly involved paints and varnishes, in 2011 our company acquired, renovated and modernized a packaging factory in Kanjiža, which now produces wooden pallets of all sizes by customer request, poplar wood veneer, plywood, and composite blocks. Thanks to these products, we have acquired a foreign customer base as well.

Expert personnel, high-quality equipment, and a constant supply of raw materials enable uninterrupted high-capacity production. Our dedication and the quality of our work have enabled us to amass a large number of regular customers. We are also equipped with a state-of-the-art chamber for drying and thermal treatment of wood and wooden pallets.

The factory is comprised of 4 production units: production of pallets, production of veneer, production of plywood and production of composite pallet blocks. Additionally, we have a joint sales and administration unit, as well as joint maintenance and supply of raw materials. 


Establishing cost-effective transport and an uninterrupted supply of raw materials represents an important link in the production cycle. 


The main raw material, wood, comes in by the river Tisa. The Tisa is a Central European river and the longest tributary of the Danube. It flows through the Pannonian basin. In Vojvodina, the Tisa separates Bačka (right bank) from Banat (left bank). Its longest tributary is the river Mureš, followed by Begej, Bodrog, Zlatica, Kereš, Samoš, Šajo, Kireš, Čiker and Jegrička. The Tisa is navigable for 532 km. The length of its section which flows through Serbia is 164 km. The Big and Small canals of Bačka connect the Tisa with the Danube, whereas the canal of Begej connects it with the Tamiš. The most important towns on the Tisa are Tokaj, Szolnok, Csongrád, Szeged, Senta and Bečej. The Tisa is navigable for most of its course.

River traffic is highly cost-effective thanks to lower fuel consumption compared to other types of transport. River transport of goods consumes only 17% of the fuel consumed during road and rail transport. One of the key advantages of river transport of goods is safety, in terms of possible product damage, which is very important when transporting hazardous or fragile cargo. Potential damage caused by potholes is eliminated during water transport.

Goods are shipped using river barges. A barge is a low-bottomed rectangular-shaped vessel used for transporting goods by rivers, canals and less frequently on seas. A river barge may be closed or open, and used for transport of various cargo by inland waterways.

Today, barges are used for transporting heavy or bulky loads, as the cost of hauling goods by barge is very low. The size of a typical barge which carries tree logs for Visa-Prom is 25.78 m X 5.35 m, and it is powered by 26 kW. 

Gripping devices used for handling, loading and unloading goods

Visa-Prom owns handling and transportation machines equipped with the appropriate gripping devices suitable for handling, storage and transport operations. Goods are handled using forestry cranes which are used to load wood onto tractors, and the tractors are then used to distribute wood equally in the area intended for log storage.

Forestry cranes, of which we have two, have the necessary power for unloading and handling logs. These cranes are designed for everyday use with medium-sized tractors. Professional construction, crane boom geometry, and a high lifting load are the main features a crane must possess in order to perform a demanding task such as unloading logs.

In addition to cranes, Ursus tractors are also used for handling and unloading goods. When translated, the word Ursus means “bear”, which only goes to show that this task requires very powerful tractors. We use three Ursus tractors for these purposes, namely Ursus 1604, Ursus 1614 and Ursus 1214.

Positioning, size and interconnection between technological surfaces for receiving, storing, sorting, processing, finishing and shipping goods.

The temporary handling point is located on cadastral plot 5/1 in the cadastral municipality of Kanjiža, and it is the place where Visa-Prom handles oversized goods which canot be delivered by other means of transport, due to the technical restrictions of access roads and numerous other limitations. Handling activities related to hauling raw material, i.e. logs into the factory, and subsequently into production, are also carried out at temporary handling points.

The required space for a temporary handling point is approximately 4,000 m2. When goods are unloaded, they are also sorted and stored. A conveyor belt connects the temporary handling point with the location where raw materials are processed. Once raw materials have been processed, finished products are sent to dry. Once dry, the finished products are stored in warehouses and shipped by road to customers. 

Transport flows

Transport flows follow a certain trajectory – a movement scheme, and they also involve a temporal
component. Transport flows in Visa-Prom are meant to put in place the concept of moving materials through the production process using the shortest possible trajectories, while maintaining the direction of the flow by bringing materials to the processing site, eliminating accumulation and stagnation of materials, eliminating manual work, and completing the process in the shortest possible time.

When designing the transport flows of Visa-Prom, we were guided by:

  • Minimizing the costs of transporting materials through production flows,
  • Minimizing the time of production flows,
  • Minimizing the work surface area,
  • Minimizing the storage space in the production process,
  • Synchronizing the movement of materials with the technological operations of discreet unit processing,
  • Automating the flow of materials partially or across the entire production process,
  • Improving humane conditions of the production flows.


Transport flow within Visa-Prom covers a section of the factory’s internal transport system, from the entry of raw materials through the loading bay to the entry warehouse, from the entry of raw materials into production to the warehouse of finished products at the exit. Taking into account the type and volume of production within the actual factory circle, the entry and exit warehouses are located in the immediate vicinity of each other.

The flow of raw materials in internal transport between various company sectors takes place using various self-propelled transportation devices:

Inside the entry warehouse for raw materials, we use Ursus tractors and cranes,
Raw materials enter production in two ways: either by the conveyor belt which goes through the entrance at the embankment or by hauling the logs into the factory on tractors.

After production is complete, the finished products are stored in the finished products warehouse using forklifts.
The flow of raw materials in external transport differs from the one in internal transport, and in this case includes waterway transport, i.e. transporting wood raw materials down the river Tisa to the temporary handling point.
