DHL Freight and DHL Global Forwarding have celebrated the opening of the new DHL Vienna Airport campus in Austria.
The new Vianna hub is multi-modal, using overland, air and ocean freight for the optimal handling and transport of goods in and out of Austria and Eastern Europe.
“With our new logistics hub at the Vienna Airport, we are leveraging the best synergies between DHL Global Forwarding and DHL Freight,” said Tim Scharwath, CEO Global Forwarding, Freight. “The new DHL campus at the Vienna Airport adds another important logistics hub to our global transportation network, which we use to service over 220 countries and territories.”
Until the new hub was opened, the two DHL divisions worked across three separate campuses across the city. The site has 3,500 square metres of office space, two freight terminals of 12,000 square metres each and 7,000 square metres of space for DHL Freight. In addition there is 1,200 square metres of space for temperature controlled goods.
“Our longer-term goal is to be the market and quality leader in European overland transport, which is why we continue to invest in the expansion and further development of our transport and groupage network,” explains Uwe Brinks, CEO DHL Freight. “We already have one of Europe’s densest terminal networks. The new DHL campus at the Vienna Airport is another important step in this direction.”
