DHL moves road operations from Vienna to Bratislava

Global transport and logistics company DHL has moved part of its express road transportation outlet from Vienna's Schwechat Airport to Bratislava's M.R. Štefánik Airport, Kamila Mráziková of DHL Express (Slovakia) said on September 18.

Thus, the M.R. Štefánik Airport has become an international sorting junction (a so-called hub) for road consignments from designated central European countries. Truck consignments from Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia, part of Romania and Austria, as well as a large part of the Czech Republic, which in the past used to come to Vienna, where they were processed, will from now on come to Bratislava.

In connection with the strategic changes, the DHL has employed new people at its terminal at Bratislava Airport, and, at the same time, it has made current personnel capacities more effective. TASR
