“Austrian Logistics” wins Rhenus company as a brand partner
Also the port operator, Rhenus Donauhafen Krems, and the freight forwarding company, Rhenus Logistics Austria, became brand partners of Austrian Logistics. The umbrella brand in the Austrian logistics sector combines brand holders that clearly provide high levels of logistical quality and is managed by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology.
Rhenus Donauhafen Krems operates a major trimodal logistics hub in Austria. The port covers a total area of 48 hectares, including 8 logistics warehouses providing more than 30,000 m² of storage space, 2 raw material warehouses with the capacity for 18,000 m³ of goods and a silo capable of storing 24,000 m³. A new lightweight structure with an integrated tentonne indoor crane has also been available to handle goods since April 2019, whatever the weather is like outside.
“As partners of Austrian Logistics, we’re able to network with other brand holders, promote an exchange of knowledge in the sector and strengthen the awareness of logistics in Austria both within the country and internationally,” says Gerhard Gussmagg, Managing Director of Rhenus Donauhafen Krems.
Rhenus Logistics Austria provides a wide range of freight forwarding services from its business sites in Krems and Vienna. They include stowage planning for containers, packaging heavy parts and delivering goods to their point of use.
“Offering forward-looking initial and further training schemes for our employees and attractive career profiles in our sector is extremely important for us within the Rhenus Group in Austria as partners of Austrian Logistics.” Thomas Doblinger, Managing Director of Rhenus Logistics Austria, adds.
The Austrian Logistics umbrella brand was launched by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology, the Central Freight Forwarding & Logistics Association, the Federation of Austrian Industries, the Austrian Federal Economic Chambers, the Logistics Network Association and the Federal Logistics Association for Austria in 2018. Its goal is to raise the awareness of the logistics services provided by Austrian companies within the country and abroad and create links between the partners involved.

Rhenus has business sites at 660 locations worldwide and employs 31,000 people. The Rhenus business areas – Contract Logistics, Freight Logistics and Port Logistics – manage complex supply chains and provide a wealth of innovative value-added services.
