DHL to build logistics centre for Austria and Eastern Europe

DHL has started construction of its new DHL Campus Vienna Airport. The state-of-the-art freight hub for Austria and Eastern Europe is in the municipality of Fischamend.

DHL Global Forwarding and DHL Freight are each building an advanced freight terminal and an office building with a total of around 12,000m² of warehouse space and around 3,500m² of office space on the property.

This will pool competencies for air and ocean freight as well as land and intermodal transport centrally at one location and create new, larger capacities for cargo.

The adjacent Vienna airport and the connection to the A4 freeway will enable both divisions to provide their customers in Austria with even better and faster transport and logistics services.

Previously, DHL Global Forwarding and DHL Freight conducted their business from three locations in Vienna, which will now be merged on the new campus.

“At DHL Freight we have a European network with more than 200 terminals. With the new building in the Vienna airport region, we will further improve the quality of our Europe-wide general cargo network Euroconnect and our premium LCL service Eurapid,” said Horst Sorg, Managing Director Austria at DHL Freight.
