Contract logistics is geared towards long-term, often strategically oriented cooperation and involves not inconsiderable investments. This is certainly true for the major order that the logistics service provider Albert Craiss GmbH & Co. KG in Mühlacker, Baden-Württemberg, was able to land. Starting next autumn, the company will take over inbound and outbound logistics for a German technology group at its production site in Weiz in eastern Styria. This article is based on the unique List of the 200 largest logistics companies in Germany.

Takeover of inbound and outbound logistics at production site
Large-scale power supply systems are manufactured there. Craiss is to be responsible for the entire production logistics, including procurement, delivery and shipment. In the first stage, the logistics provider will take over the logistics process from goods receipt to the consolidation and storage of delivery parts, including technical quality inspection, to the supply of production. In the second stage – scheduled for the first quarter of 2022 – Craiss will also be responsible for the interim storage, preparation for dispatch and dispatch processing of finished products.
For the execution of this major order, Craiss has founded its own Austrian subsidiary – Craiss Generation Logistik Austria GmbH & Co. KG. Under its corporate umbrella, a new logistics centre will be built in Weiz, which will contain the infrastructure to take over the logistical tasks. The logistics centre will be built on a 48,000 sqm site and will have an area of approx. 18,000 sqm – enough space for the required crane technology and special equipment for the transport and storage of the products. The plan is to complete the logistics centre by autumn 2021 so that the phased takeover of inbound and outbound logistics can take place on schedule. The new Craiss site will provide work for around 50 employees.
