On July 1, 2020, Gebrüder Weiss will be represented in the Southern hemisphere for the first time, with the opening of national subsidiaries in Australia and New Zealand.

The future air and sea locations are situated in the Australian major cities of Sydney and Melbourne, as well as in Auckland, New Zealand. This move is part of the company's global strategy to develop new markets, extending its existing network of locations in the Gebrüder Weiss region of East Asia/Oceania.

"As we enter the markets in Australia and New Zealand, we will focus primarily on import business from Asian, American, and European markets," commented Michael Zankel, Regional Manager East Asia/Oceania at Gebrüder Weiss. To offer customers in its newest market one-stop logistics solutions, the global transport leader has a presence in each of the region's top trading partner countries, which includes China, the US, Japan, Germany and South Korea.
