Vienna / Austria, March 13, 2012 – Kuehne + Nagel has established a central hub in Vienna for groupage overland operations to and from Eastern Europe. The hub is another important step in Kuehne + Nagel’s strategy to continuously expand its European roadfreight network.
The new Eastern Hub will connect all major countries of Eastern Europe via direct lines and with over 300 weekly departures. The centralised groupage platform enables better capacity utilization, reduced transit times and an increased number of lanes with daily departures within Europe. Fixed transportation times and scheduled departures guarantee customers a transparent and continuous cargo flow.
“The hub in Vienna complements our strategic approach to establish a highly efficient groupage network and to offer our customers reliable leadtimes across our region and all of Europe. Being the gateway to the Western and Eastern industry centres, Vienna has been the obvious choice as the best suited location,” states Jörg Herwig, Senior Vice President Road & Rail Eastern Europe.
