Atlanta, GA, July 31, 2017. Logistics provider Dachser is investing approximately 6.5 million Euro into a new 215,000 square feet facility located in Stans in Tyrol, Austria. Dachser Austria recently held a groundbreaking ceremony for the new terminal, which is scheduled to begin operations in late 2017 and will create 40 new jobs.
Dachser's new logistics center in Tyrol will provide customers with comprehensive transport and warehousing logistics, replacing its site in Hall, Austria. The facility will include 30 gates and a storage and logistics area covering approximately 50,000 square feet. Another section of the building offers space for additional loading stations and parking spaces.
Dachser's Managing Director European Logistics Dachser Austria Guenter Hirschbeck and his Tyrolean team performed the groundbreaking at the Tyrol logistics center with both Guenther Platter, governor of Tyrol, and Michel Huber, mayor of Stans, in attendance.
"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," Hirschbeck said. "With this new site, we are supporting the region and are adding 40 new jobs to the existing 45 from the Hall facility," he said.
Starting in late 2017, Dachser's new facility will offer its customers everything from a single source: customized 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.
With ten locations in Austria, Dachser maintains a strong branch network that offers its customers ideal market proximity. The Tyrolean terminal will deliver precision-timed shipments to 362 locations throughout Europe. Daily shipments to eastern Europe and the Balkans will go through the Eurohub in Bratislava, Slovakia.
