Audi opens €32 million logistics centre in Hungary

Car manufacturer Audi has opened a new €32 million logistics centre in Hungary. This has been supported by the Hungarian government, which is building new infrastructure in the country to support major manufacturers.

The 80,000 logistics centre will eventually employ 1000 staff and dispatch 450 shipments a day worth €40 million a year to the company’s car and engine production divisions.

The Hungarian government is actively supporting the move by the car manufacturer by investing in infrastructure. The new facility will be linked to Bratislava via the M1 motorway by the end of 2017, significantly improving the movement of goods.

Audi has recently opened another logistics facility, and between the two centres the company aims to save €3 billion annually.
