Gebrüder Weiss to double Czech logistics capabilities

Gebrüder Weiss and Global Freight System (GFS) have set up the joint venture “Gebrüder Weiss Express China”, specialising in parcel transports between China and Europe.

Gebrüder Weiss has announced plans to expand its warehousing and logistics space in Jeneč, near Prague, Czech Republic. The Austrian-based freight forwarder will add three new warehouses at a cost of approximately €5m.

By the end of 2017, Gebrüder Weiss will have expanded its warehousing space by 9,000 sq m, doubling the size of its current facilities in Jeneč. Headcount will also be increased and staff facilities modernised as part of the expansion. Jeneč is one of the company’s seven locations within the Czech Republic, focusing largely on specialist solutions for highly sensitive products within the high-tech, automotive and engineering sectors.

Karel Šindelář, Branch Manager at Gebrüder Weiss Jeneč, said, “The expansion was necessary as we were literally running out of space. Demand in the hazardous goods area has risen, in particular, and we will be able to meet all of it from fall onwards.”
