Gebrüder Weiss Gesellschaft m.b.H. Transport und Logistik: For the love of mobility

Gebrüder Weiss is among the leading transport and logistics companies with over 4,650 employees, 158 company-owned locations and an annual turnover of 1,07 billion euros (2011). Under the umbrella of the Gebrüder Weiss Holding AG with headquarters in Lauterach (Vor­­­arlberg), the company brings together, along with its main business sectors land trans­­­port, air and sea freight and logistics, a number of highly specialised industry solutions and subsidiaries – including the logistics consultancy xvise, inet-logis­­tics (software solutions for transport management TMS), Railcargo (railway transports) and the Gebrüder Weiss Paket­­­dienst, co-partner of the Austrian parcel service DPD. This bundling makes it possible for the group to react quickly and flexibly to customer requirements.

With a wide variety of ecological, eco­no­­­­m­­­ical and social measures, the family-owned company, whose history in the trans­­port business dates back more than 500 years, is considered a pioneer when it comes to a sustainable business approach.

Major projects include the acquisition of a wind farm in Northern Germany, the implementation of its own block train project between Bludenz and Vi­­­enna, as well as the construction of Austria’s first climate-neutral logistics building in Wörgl/Tyrol.
