Connecting Austria with the Unifeeder network

Vienna’s geographic location, its great accessibility to the highway and rail connections make it an obvious and strategic location for the new depot, said Unifeeder.


"Our strategy is to provide a price-competitive, multimodal alternative for our customers, as well as, ensure a steady flow for their cargo from Austria, to the rest of Europe," said the line.


"Benefiting from the constant availability of shortsea equipment in Austria, as well as large scale operations, we can help our customers cope with last-minute orders, changes or delays by adding or rerouting their cargo when needed. With our extensive multimodal network in Europe, we simplify the complex tasks of choosing and managing supply chains and enable our customers to deliver their products to markets throughout Europe."

Tim Niebergall, Unifeeder’s Shortsea Director, said: "Multimodal transport is more cost-effective than transport by trailer and can be closely coordinated with our customers to secure just-in-time loading and delivery.


"Use of 45ft containers offers the possibility of an effortless move of cargo between truck and more sustainable transport modes like rail and seaborne transport. Therefore, by choosing the multimodal solution you can make a valuable contribution to less CO2 emissions as well as less congestion on European roads."
