Gebrüder Weiss will establish a location at Straubing, Germany during October.

The branch in the lower Bavarian commercial center will be based at a newly acquired, 45,000 sq m property in the Sachsenring industrial park.

“We will be growing Straubing into a major hub within our expanding southern German land transport network, enabling regional companies to access the entire Gebrüder Weiss service portfolio,” said ceo Wolfram Senger-Weiss. In the medium term, the company will offer 60-80 new jobs in every area of the forwarding business. Up to 120 new roles are envisaged in the long term.

The Straubing location will complement the existing southern German branches in Aldingen, Esslingen, Lindau, Memmingen, Nuremberg, Passau, and Waldkraiburg – the facility added most recently following the acquisition of Spedition Lode that HLPFI reported on here.
