Gebrüder Weiss opens two new locations

They are both situated on important transport links to southern and south-eastern Europe (Adriatic corridor).

“The number of consignments increased tremendously over the past year. The Home Delivery area in particular is booming, in which we were able to achieve growth of 80 percent in 2020, compared to the previous year,” explains Bálint Varga, Country Manager Gebrüder Weiss Hungary.

“This makes us the market leader here. In order to meet the high customer demand for logistics services throughout the country while also offering the best possible service, we are working to successively expand our logistics capacities”.

New handling and logistics areas are being built with over 5,000 square meters at the Györ location, for example, and are due to be completed by 2024.

The Hajdúdorog branch will be relocated to Polgár, around 30 kilometers away, at the end of 2021 and will benefit from a logistics area that is around three times larger than its previous one.

Gebrüder Weiss’s largest location in Hungary is also undergoing significant changes: 22,000 square meters of new office and logistics complexes are due to be built in Budapest by 2023 – nearly doubling the total area currently available (23,000 square meters).

The company’s expansion is also reflected in the rising number of employees: 100 new jobs will be created. This means that a total of 600 employees will then be working for Gebrüder Weiss in Hungary.
