DACHSER expands its Vienna branch

DACHSER is expanding its Vienna logistics centre and investing around €25m in the expansion of its logistics capacities. Following the expansion and extension, DACHSER intends to have a total of 12,470 sq m of space in the industrial and consumer goods sector at its Himberg location. Commissioning of the expanded space is scheduled for mid-December 2023.
DACHSER has been active in the Austrian market since 1995; in 2008, the Vienna logistics centre was put into operation in addition to the Linz location. After 15 years, the location with its transhipment warehouse and office and administration building became too small, and the need arose for an expansion such as a modernization of the logistics facility. Extensive construction work began in March.

Currently, the transhipment warehouse is 7,150 sq m in size and has 80 gates. In the coming months, this might be expanded by 5,320 sq m of handling space, just under 800 sq m of integrated office space and 48 gates, so that the total area of the warehouse expansion might then be 12,470 sq m with 128 gates. 

Almost 200 people are currently employed at the DACHSER branch in Himberg. In the medium term, up to 20 industrial and commercial jobs might be created at the location.
