DHL to expand in Vienna with new airport facility

07 / 09 / 2018

DHL Global Forwarding and DHL Freight have started construction of the new DHL Campus Vienna Airport.

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 in the municipality of Fischamend.

“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 sister divisions said.

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.

Christoph Wahl, managing director Austria at DHL Global Forwarding, said: “With the DHL Campus Vienna Airport we are further expanding our leading market position in Austria.

“This modern logistics hub, which meets the highest safety and quality standards, will enable us not only to handle a higher volume of freight for our customers, for instance in the Life Sciences & Healthcare industry, but also to provide an even better service.

“The direct proximity to the airport will reduce turnaround times and create valuable synergies with our colleagues in road transport.”

Completion of the new DHL Campus Vienna Airport is scheduled for the first quarter of 2019. Around 250 employees will then dispatch and consolidate freight at the new location.

The new warehouses and office buildings will meet the TAPAA security standards and comply with environmental protection requirements.
