The Lower Austrian provincial governor Johanna Mikl-Leitner visited on January 9, 2019, the company Müller transports, which is based in Wiener Neudorf. She was accompanied by the mayor of Vienna Neudorf Herbert Janschka and the Lower Austrian member of parliament Martin Schuster, mayor of Perchtoldsdorf.

During talks with employees and the management of the transport company, which has been operating for more than 60 years, Johanna Mikl-Leitner informed herself extensively about current labor market issues and the related lack of skilled workers in the logistics industry. The bureaucracy reduction that was urgently needed from the point of view of the transport logistics industry was also addressed in the case of the constructions of new locations and plant expansions.

Fritz Müller, owner and managing director of Müller Transporte: “Governor Mikl-Leitner showed great interest in the logistics industry during the visit. She took a lot of time to personally inform herself about the current challenges of the transport industry, which is so important for Lower Austria. The fact, that the provincial governor has selected our company for this is a special honor and was a great pleasure.”

Müller Transporte employs over 390 people and specializes in the transport of temperature-controlled goods. The family-owned company has existed for more than 60 years and today engages as an international logistics service provider as a link between industrial companies, producers and retailers throughout Europe.
