Logistics Hub Austria

Austria stands out due to its historically evolved role as a bridgehead to South East and Eastern Europe and its high quality logistics infrastructure.

At the beginning of 2014, Deutsche Lufthansa relocated its distribution center for Eastern Europe from Budapest to Vienna, and the logistics specialist DAHMS solutions selected Austria as the hub of its new e-commerce logistics center from which it supplies online retailers throughout Europe. The two firms followed the example of numerous international companies such as Volvo, REWE, Fresenius Kabi and Charles Vögele which have selected Austria to be their distribution centers and logistics interfaces.

The “International Business Compass 2014“ of BDO and the Hamburg Institute of International Economics (HWWI) praises Austria’s high logistics competence. The World Economic Forum (WEF) ranks Austria among the top ten (8th) and particularly emphasizes the quality of its electricity supply (4th globally), roads (6th) and railway network (12th). Moreover, the Global Competitiveness Report 2014 published by the Swiss management institute IMD says Austria’s infrastructure demonstrates a high level of efficiency (12th globally) and is subject to continuous improvement (14th), which, amongst other factors, is being driven by the Infrastructure Framework Program 2014-2019.

Logistics and infrastructure are decisive factors in selecting a business location. Austria offers the ideal prerequisites for globally operating companies:

  • Central location in the heart of Europe

  • High level of logistics competence

  • Bridgehead function to South East and Eastern Europe

  • Eastern European know-how of service providers and employees

  • Efficient airports and leading East-West interface in European air traffic

  • Low rental prices for storage space

  • Excellent interaction of the various means of transport – intermodal terminals ensure the ideal combination of road, rail and waterway traffic

  • Modal split above the EU average – 37% of goods are transported by the railway system

  • 15 track border crossings with access to seven neighboring markets

  • Connection to the North Sea and the Black Sea (Danube), to the Near East and Asia (hinterland hubs for Adriatic ports)

  • Highly qualified logistics managers and specialized employees
