Gebrüder Weiss reveals healthy 2015 results

Lauterach, Austria-headquartered international transport and logistics company Gebrüder Weiss has said that its 2015 fiscal year figures prove that it “surpassed the result of the previous year and successfully strengthened its position in several growth markets and sectors”. Enjoying a year on year increase of 3%, the group has revealed a provisional net turnover of €1.28bn.
“In spite of the tense economic situation in Europe, we continued to build on the steady development of the previous years by investing in facilities, products and human resources and created added value for our customers through intelligent logistics solutions. We are very satisfied with our performance,” enthused Wolfgang Niessner, Gebrüder Weiss CEO.
In 2015, Gebrüder Weiss’s Air & Sea business division recorded year on year growth in turnover of 2%, with turnover reaching €293.9m (compared to €288.1m in 2014). The group’s overland transport and logistics business area increased its turnover by 3.9% to €857.7m (in 2014, the comparative figure was €825.8m).
 Last year, the group made a number of key strategic decisions regarding its development in the area of global supply chain management. “In order to fully exploit optimisation potential for our customers, we need to consider the complex value creation chain in its entirety and provide support through efficient consulting, planning and logistics expertise,” Niessner informed.
Looking forward, this year Gebrüder Weiss expects to strengthen its already strong position in Central and Eastern Europe and along the former Silk Road routes toward China. “We will continue to align our products and processes to the requirements of our customers and develop innovative solutions in order to keep up with the growing pace of digitisation,” Niessner said.
