Gebrüder Weiss launches Moscow groupage service

[ November 3, 2020   //   ]

Austrian forwarder Gebrüder Weiss has launched a weekly scheduled groupage service between Vienna and Moscow.

Departures from Vienna are on Fridays with a transit time of four days. Deliveries within Russia will be by partner JDE (Zheldor Ekspeditsiya) which, with 244 locations in the Russian Federation, has one of the largest distribution networks between Smolensk and Vladivostok.

Gebrüder Weiss plans to increase the frequency of both scheduled services, with additional connections from Europe to Russia. The company started a service from the Bavarian town of Memmingen to Moscow two years ago.

Director and regional manager Black Sea/CIS Thomas Moser (pictured), said: “The new groupage freight line between Vienna and Moscow is aimed at addressing the growing demand of our customers for regular services to Russia. We have gained some valuable experience with the Memmingen-Moscow line, which we can now utilize to develop the second link.”
