Aigner Transporte in Haag am Hausruck (Upper Austria) celebrated the anniversary of its 80th anniversary on 9 June with its long-standing customers and network partners. In addition to 350 guests, the 75 employees of the family company attended the event.

As a specialist for full- and less than full load transport by road, Aigner Powerful Logistics will primarily serve direct customers from the market segments of aluminum, steel, wood, agricultural goods, construction fuels, food and pharmaceuticals in 2018. The focus is on transports to or from Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden and Norway, “however, we also offer refrigerated transports to England and Ireland on a regular basis”, says Marius Aigner.

With 90 trailers and 50 tractors, the Aigner fleet handles around 200,000 orders a year for refrigerated, flat and bulk goods transports. The trade in diesel and heating oil as well as the school bus service, home delivery service and ambulance services are also part of their core business.

In the segment of warehousing logistics, the company manages Austria’s only roofed system with a capacity of 15,000 tonnes for the purpose of collecting old glass. In a warehouse of approximately ​​3,000 m², services for the overseas goods of Lenzing AG – including the stowage of containers – are provided. The 24,000 m² company area in Haag am Hausruck is fully utilised.

The anniversary of Aigner Transporte provided a worthy setting for the transfer of business to the younger generations. Daughter Alexandra Aigner will be responsible for the division of ​​trade and passenger transport. The forwarding and logistics divisions are taken over by grandson Marius Aigner, who announced on stage during his ‘inaugural speech’, that the company “will continue to expand and recruit new employees”.

The Aigner company has moved 21 million tonnes of goods and traveled 416 million kilometers in the past 80 years. This is about 10,400 times the length of the equator.
