AUSTRIA – Bavarian headquartered freight group Dachser has held a ground breaking ceremony for a new terminal the company is building in Stans, Austria, which is scheduled to begin operations in late 2017 and will create 40 new jobs. The new 20,000 square metre facility will cost some €6.5 million. The new centre will provide comprehensive transport and warehousing logistics, replacing Dachser's existing site in Hall. The facility will have 30 gates and a storage and logistics area covering approximately 4,700 square metres. Another section of the building offers space for additional loading stations and parking spaces.

The ceremony was attended by Günther Platter, governor of Tyrol, and Michel Huber, mayor of Stans, as well as Dachser’s managing director for European logistics in Austria Günter Hirschbeck, who said :

“Over the next few months, a modern facility will be erected at this site, which will form an important part of the logistics network in western Austria and beyond. With this new site, we are supporting the region and are adding 40 new jobs to the existing 45.”

Dachser state that from late 2017 the Stans facility will offer its customers everything from a single source: customised contract logistics services and a direct connection to the European transport network and worldwide air and sea freight services by Dachser Air & Sea Logistics, which currently has ten locations in Austria, and that the Tyrolean terminal will be able to deliver precision-timed shipments to 362 locations throughout Europe.
