DHL opens key strategic hub for Austria and Eastern Europe 24 May 2019

Bundling overland, air and ocean freight services at Vienna Airport

DHL Global Forwarding and DHL Freight have opened a new Vienna Airport campus in the county of Fischamend. The state-of-the-art logistics hub will combine the strengths of the three different transport modes, overland, air and ocean freight, for optimal handling and transport of goods in and out of Austria and Eastern Europe.

The new DHL campus at the Vienna Airport adds another important logistics hub and gateway to the DHL Global Forwarding, Freight worldwide network.

Until now, DHL Global Forwarding and DHL Freight conducted business from three separate locations around Vienna; these will now be consolidated at the new campus. Along with some 3,500 m2 of office space, DHL's new Vienna Airport campus includes two freight terminals, each measuring some 12,000 m2 and consisting of roughly 5,000 m2 for DHL Global Forwarding warehousing and handling, as well as 7,000 m2 for DHL Freight.

In order to meet the steadily growing demand for logistics and transport services in the life sciences and healthcare sector, DHL has also created larger capacities for temperature-controlled goods. With over 1,200 m2, DHL Global Forwarding has doubled its space in this area.

DHL’s longer-term goal is to be the market and quality leader in European overland transport. It already has one of Europe's densest terminal networks. The new DHL campus at the Vienna Airport is another important step in this direction.

Design and construction of the new DHL campus focused on sustainable building practices and the use of renewable energy in line with Deutsche Post DHL Group's target to achieve zero-emission logistics by the year 2050. In addition, the new logistics hub also meets the highest TAPA security standards (TAPA A).
