Christoph Wahl and Gerlad Weirowski of DHL Global Forwarding Austria discuss the significance of the Austrian affiliate being chosen as lead office for CEE and the company’s life sciences and logistics hub. They also tackle emerging trends in the pharma logistics segment. DHL’s Austrian affiliate has recently been made the lead office for the Central & Eastern European (CEE) region, having hitherto been acting as a regional headquarters for Southern Europe. What is the logic behind this latest organizational change?
"Our focus is on further developing our Vienna gateway to support the evolving needs of the CEE region especially in the life sciences logistics area, and on extending our service portfolio through additional investments in areas like ocean freight."
