Cargo-Partner Celebrate Opening of New iLogistics Center in Vienna
Austria-based privately owned full-range info-logistics provider, cargo partner recently announced the opening of their new innovative iLogistics Center located near Vienna International Airport. The company marked this auspicious occasion with the help of 250 guests at a grand opening party. The party also gave the opportunity for cargo-partner to thank the project team responsible along with key clients and partners.
cargo partner CEO, Stefan Krauter explained the reasons for the new investment, “The transport and logistics industry never stands still. In times of globalization and digitalization, we constantly have to keep transforming and adapting to stay ahead of the curve. The Vienna Airport region has always been an important hub for us and with our iLogistics Center, we have successfully created a showcase project of ecologically and economically sustainable architecture.”
The new Vienna iLogistics Center is made wholly from wood, with over 4,200 m³ of timber being used in the construction. Each cubic meter of wood has a drastic effect on CO₂ emissions reducing them by an average of 1.1 t. compared to standard building materials.
Leading international manufacturer of injection molding machines, ENGEL is one of cargo partner’s key clients and Harald Wegerer, Vice President Customer Service Division at ENGEL why the deciosn was made to choose cargo-partner, “Our requirements were clear from the start: high process security, late cut-off times for incoming orders, and guaranteed same-day delivery with excellent transport and logistics connections. In addition, an essential requirement is that we can rely on order fulfillment 365 days a year. The cooperation with cargo partner was highly satisfactory, and I think we both benefited and learned very much from this project.”
Head of Real Estate and Location Management for Vienna Airport, Wolfgang Scheibenpflug commented on the partnership and new center, “As a longstanding and loyal partner of Vienna Airport, cargo partner is extremely important to us, since the company’s development serves not only to create and secure many jobs, but also to strengthen the traffic hub around our Airport City.”
cargo partner has made several other investments recently, including the ongoing expansion of the iLogistics Center in Dunajska Streda, Slovakia and the opening of new iLogistics Centers in Sofia and Ljubljana.
