Logwin: bundled expertise at its Traiskirchen location

Logwin Traiskirchen is now also managing fashion projects with a direct connection to the international retail network.

Aschaffenburg/Traiskirchen – The logistics service provider Logwin has relocated its fashion competence from its Vienna site to Traiskirchen, 20 kilometers away. The move was successfully completed in June following several months of preparation and comprehensive structural alterations. The bundling of services in Traiskirchen means that the location is now directly connected to Logwin's international fashion and retail network. Customers from the area of contract logistics will also benefit from shorter lead times and even better service.

"Our location in the Liesing district of Vienna was situated in a residential area where structural development or alterations would have made no sense," explains Franz Bräuer, Logwin's branch manager in Traiskirchen. "Since we have a state-of-the-art logistics site with sufficient capacity even for further growth just a few kilometers away, the best solution was to concentrate our services here."

A great deal of space for ambitious projects

Logwin operates a logistics center on the industrial estate in Traiskirchen with around 40,000 square metres of warehousing space and 1,200 square metres of office space. This makes Traiskirchen one of Logwin's largest sites anywhere in the world. It is where Logwin manages contract logistics projects in the automotive, retailing, fashion and e-commerce fields. The location is also certified for seaworthy packaging – employees perform packing for equipment and components from the field of electrical engineering, from the purchasing of the packaging materials to loading containers. What is new is now the transshipment of high-value hanging garments and numerous value added services such as labelling and placing textiles on hangers. Following the relocation of all 34 staff from Vienna, Logwin now employs 80 people in Traiskirchen.

Investment in structural alterations totaling around 1.2 million euros have been made at the site over the last few months in order to integrate the fashion projects from Vienna with the logistics facility in Traiskirchen. "We have thermally refurbished various areas of the warehouse and also dismantled the high-rack storage facility," says Franz Bräuer. This allowed the development of 8,000 square metres of external storage on the premises which supplement the more than 32,000 square metres of enclosed storage space. Long-standing Logwin customers showed interest in the new extended area even while the structural alterations were in progress, indicating they may well commission additional projects in the current year.

The Traiskirchen location is now very diversified thanks to the concentration of contract logistics and fashion projects and the associated structural alterations there. "We can offer a wide range of industry expertise and provide logistical services exactly tailored to match the product, from a two-meter high tractor tire to a high-quality ball gown that is transported as a hanging garment from start to finish,” Franz Bräuer states.
