Gebrüder Weiss, a transport and logistics company, has expanded its Australian network by creating a new Air & Sea office in Brisbane.
This is reportedly 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 plays an important role in international trade with a record throughput of 1.56 million TEU in 2022.
Andrew Antonopoulos, Managing Director Australia and New Zealand at Gebrüder Weiss, said: “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. The services include air & sea transports, customs clearance and a customised logistics mix for project orders.”
Most recently, Gebrüder Weiss organised the transport of an innovative solar car from Switzerland to Australia and back for the ETH Zurich’s aCentauri Solar Racing Team.
The Swiss team managed to cover a distance of 3,000 kilometres across the Australian outback using nothing but solar power.
Australia’s most important partners for its import-oriented economy are China, the US and other Asian countries such as South Korea and Japan, where Gebrüder Weiss also operates its own locations.
Michael Zankel, Regional Manager East Asia/Oceania at Gebrüder Weiss, stated: “We offer efficient end-to-end logistics solutions for connections with the rapidly growing amount of intra-Asian traffic.”
Gebrüder Weiss intends to open more stations in Australia’s north and west in order to give comprehensive coverage of the whole continent.
