DHL opens logistics hub at the Vienna Airport

DHL Supply Chain has announced the beginning of construction of its 'London Thames Gateway’, which will be operational in spring 2023.

DHL has opened a new logistics hub at the Vienna airport. Along with 3,500 sq m of office space, DHL’s new Vienna Airport campus includes two freight terminals, each measuring some 12,000 sq m and consisting of roughly 5,000 sq m for DHL Global Forwarding warehousing and handling, as well as 7,000 sq m for DHL Freight. DHL has also created larger capacities for temperature-controlled goods.

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. The new logistics hub aims to 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.

“Our longer-term goal is to be the market and quality leader in European overland transport, which is why we continue to invest in the expansion and further development of our transport and groupage network,” explains Uwe Brinks, CEO DHL Freight.
