With the move to a new building in Hungary, the G. Englmayer Group is preparing itself for the expected further growth in the region of Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe. In the past few months, an investor built a logistics facility in Biatorbagy near Budapest with 10,000 m² of hall space, of which almost 7,000 m² are used for the time being. The main purpose of the new office remains cross-docking for the local market and neighbouring countries. The opening was officially celebrated on 3 October.

The commissioning of the new transhipment terminal in Biatorbagy took place at the same time as the 25th anniversary of G. Englmayer in Hungary. Hungary was the first country where G. Englmayer established a branch outside of Austria. There are currently 50 people employed (adding to that 15 temporary employees and employees of the partner companies) and direct transports with numerous European countries.

Headquartered in Wels, Germany, the G. Englmayer Group has developed over the years into a service provider capable of servicing all over Europe while providing customized solutions. Thus, the company is also an interesting partner for international forwarding companies with a need for a stable network for general cargo and express shipments in Eastern and Southeastern Europe.

To keep it that way, the location for cross-docking in Leopoldsdorf near Vienna has been expanded from 5,000 m² to 6,500 m² total area and now the new space with 40 gates in Biatorbagy near Budapest has doubled the total space. The next initiatives planned include expansion in Romania and the Western Balkans region.

The strengths of the Austrian forwarding group lie in the development, implementation and support of customer-specific service concepts in European land transport, divided into the areas of general cargo, day / night express, partial and full loads (FTL / LTL). If required, shippers receive support in warehouse logistics right through to goods picking and distribution as well as customs logistics. For this purpose, several halls with almost 40,000 m² total area in Wels come into play.

G. Englmayer is owned by the Wiesinger Privatstiftung and has its own companies and network structures in the home market of Austria as well as in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina. 600 employees at 20 locations in nine countries handled around 2.25 million shipments a year in the previous year, resulting in sales of just under EUR 150 million.
