Gebrüder Weiss, a WACO System Austria member since 1975, has announced the expansion of its representation for the network to include Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, and Slovakia. The Austrian-headquartered forwarder offers logistics services globally and also operates a number of specialised industry solutions and subsidiaries including GW Rail Cargo and inet-logistics. The company operates its own offices in all of the new territories it is representing for WACO.
Richard Charles, Executive Director, The WACO System, said, “Gebrüder Weiss was one of the original members of The WACO System and understands our values very well.” He added, “The economies of Central and Eastern Europe showed solid growth last year and the region represents an important and developing market which our network can now serve working with one of the strongest providers in the territory.”
According to the announcement, the WACO System is now represented in 107 countries and handles more than 1.85m shipments a year, including one million tonnes of airfreight. The network recently introduced a new Associate Vendor membership for suppliers providing critical services to freight forwarders, giving them the opportunity of working more closely with WACO members.
Stefan Eberl, Regional Sales & Marketing Manager, Gebrüder Weiss, said, “The Gebrüder Weiss offices in Serbia, Slovenia, Slovakia and Croatia are delighted to join WACO,” adding, “Gebrüder Weiss is looking forward to expanding our business with fellow members. “Gebrüder Weiss has been in a partnership with WACO in many countries and we are very happy to continue to expand our partnership for the benefit of our customers.”
