Gebrüder Weiss expands in Australia
International logistics company Gebrüder Weiss is expanding its network in Australia with the opening of a new Air & Sea office in Brisbane.
This is now the third location operated by the international logistics company in Australia, following on from Sydney and Melbourne.
The most important transhipment hub in Brisbane is the container port, which had a record throughput of 1.56m standard containers in 2022.
“Opening a location in Brisbane represents another key step in our efforts to increase our presence in Australia. The services offered here are tailored particularly to customers from the engineering, agriculture and medical equipment sectors,” said Andrew Antonopoulos, managing director Australia and New Zealand at Gebrüder Weiss.
“The services include air & sea transports, customs clearance and a customized logistics mix for project orders.”
Most recently, Gebrüder Weiss organised the transport of a solar car from Switzerland to Australia and back for the ETH Zurich’s aCentauri Solar Racing Team.
Gebrüder Weiss has plans to open additional locations in the north and west of Australia.
The logistics provider also has a foothold in New Zealand with two locations in Auckland and Christchurch.
Australia’s most important partners for its import-oriented economy are the US, China and other Asian countries such as South Korea and Japan, where Gebrüder Weiss also operates its own locations.
“We offer efficient end-to-end logistics solutions for connections with the rapidly growing amount of intra-Asian traffic,” said Michael Zankel, regional manager East Asia/Oceania at Gebrüder Weiss.
