Gebrüder Weiss opened a logistics terminal in Tyrol, Austria
|Gebrüder Weiss opened a logistics terminal in the Kreckelmoos industrial estate in Reutte on March 22.|
The location is specifically designed to meet the requirements of locally based businesses in Tyrol, Austria. This will make the trips for the collection and delivery of import and export goods shorter and more flexible. They reach Reutte directly, are cross-decked and stored there, and delivered via short routes, including as express shipments. Customs clearance, as well as air and sea freight services, complete the on-site portfolio. The logistics company has invested around eight million euros in the new building, which was completed in less than a year.
Günter Schmarl, Branch Manager Tyrol at Gebrüder Weiss, explains what positive effects this has: “We reduce trips over the busy Fernpass road between Tyrol and Bavaria and provide relief for regional traffic because we bundle storage capacities scattered across the district close to the shippers and recipients of goods. Not only is this more efficient for everyone involved, it is also in keeping with the sustainability and climate strategy of the state of Tyrol, which aims to have regional distribution centers for the collection and delivery of goods.”
Gebrüder Weiss aims to operate all of its logistics facilities around the world in a climate-neutral way by 2030, with the company increasingly relying on electricity from renewable sources to this end.
