BONN, Germany: September 10, 2018. DHL Global Forwarding and DHL Freight have begun construction of a new DHL campus at Vienna Airport.

The two divisions are building a state-of-the-art freight hub for Austria and Eastern Europe on the site in the municipality of Fischamend. The symbolic groundbreaking ceremony was attended by Günther Ofner, Member of the Board of Flughafen Wien AG, Thomas Ram, Mayor of Fischamend Municipality, Christoph Wahl, Managing Director Austria at DHL Global Forwarding and Horst Sorg, Managing Director Austria at DHL Freight.


“With the DHL Campus Vienna Airport we are further expanding our leading market position in Austria. This modern logistics hub, which meets the highest safety and quality standards, will enable us not only to handle a higher volume of freight for our customers, for instance in the Life Sciences & Healthcare industry, but also to provide an even better service. The direct proximity to the airport will reduce turnaround times and create valuable synergies with our colleagues in road transport,” said Wahl.


DHL Vienna airportDHL Global Forwarding and DHL Freight are each building an advanced freight terminal and an office building with a total of around 12,000m2 of warehouse space and around 3,500m2 of office space to pool competencies for air and ocean freight as well as land and intermodal transport in one location.

The adjacent Vienna airport and the connection to the A4 freeway will enable both divisions to provide their customers in Austria with even better and faster transport and logistics services, says the company.

“We are delighted with DHL’s decision to build a new logistics campus here. This underlines the attractiveness of the Vienna Airport Region as a business location for Austrian and international companies. With well-developed properties, excellent transport connections and great local amenities, the region offers optimal conditions. New developments create jobs and strengthen the entire region,” added Günther Ofner, member of the Board of Flughafen Wien.

Completion of the new DHL Campus Vienna Airport is scheduled for the first quarter of 2019. DHL says the new facilities will not only meet the highest security standards (TAPA-A) but will also comply with the most rigorous environmental protection requirements.

The sustainable design and use of renewable energies will directly contribute to Deutsche Post DHL Group’s goal of reducing all logistics-related emissions to zero by 2050. In addition to alternative drives and green transport solutions, sustainable measures in the construction and modernization of Deutsche Post DHL Group sites will play an important role in achieving this goal.


“I am delighted that an international company such as DHL has chosen Fischamend as its location. This decision shows the importance of our city and the airport region,” says Thomas Ram, Mayor of Fischamend Municipality.
