Dachser investing €6.5 million in new Austrian facility


Logistics provider Dachser is investing €6.5 million in a new 20,000 square metre facility in Stans in Tyrol, Austria.

Dachser Austria has held a groundbreaking ceremony for the new terminal, which is scheduled to begin operations in late 2017 and will create 40 new jobs.

The logistics center in Tyrol will provide customers with transport and warehousing logistics, replacing its site in Hall and will have 30 gates and a storage and logistics area covering approximately 4,700 square metres. Another section of the building offers space for additional loading stations and parking spaces.

Dachser’s managing director of European logistics for Dachser Austria, Günter Hirschbeck says: “Over the next few months, a modern facility will be erected at this site, which will form an important part of the logistics network in western Austria and beyond.”

Starting in late 2017, Dachser’s Stans-based facility will offer its customers everything from a single source: customised contract logistics services and a direct connection to the seamless European transport network and worldwide air and sea freight services by Dachser Air & Sea Logistics.

Dachser operates at 10 locations in Austria and the new terminal will deliver shipments to 362 locations throughout Europe. Daily shipments to eastern Europe and the Balkans will go through the Eurohub in Bratislava, Slovakia.
