Austrian Post: Our new postal base in Wiener Neustadt combines all the developments and trends of recent years

In order to be able to process the increasing parcel volumes in the usual high quality, Österreichische Post AG is pressing ahead with the expansion of its logistics infrastructure. 

This includes the new postal base in Wiener Neustadt, which was  opened yesterday, Tuesday, by the Governor of Lower Austria, Johanna Mikl-Leitner, the Mayor of Wiener Neustadt, Klaus Schneeberger, and the General Director of the Austrian Post, Georg Pölzl.

The new postal base also created the infrastructure for the conversion of the vehicle fleet. From now on, the post office in Wiener Neustadt will be on the road exclusively with electric vehicles and will thus deliver all parcels, letters, brochures, newspapers and magazines on the last mile CO2-free.

“The people of Lower Austria expect the most comprehensive support possible from Austrian Post. This will be ensured with the opening of the new postal base in the Wiener Neustadt Eco-Business Park, which is operated by our business agency ecoplus. This is a great gain for the region and an important step towards a sustainable future for Lower Austria. I am very pleased that the city of Wiener Neustadt is playing a pioneering role here and is the first city in Lower Austria where mail is already delivered completely CO2-free,” emphasised Governor Johanna Mikl-Leitner at the opening.

“Austrian Post’s new delivery base is a benefit in several respects. On the one hand, it is perfectly connected in terms of transport and thus offers ideal conditions for the delivery of parcels. And in addition, the delivery base is built with the highest environmental and sustainable standards, which in turn is fully in line with the intentions of Ecoplus here in the ÖKO Business Park and the city of Wiener Neustadt in general. I congratulate all employees on this step and wish them much joy at the new location,” says Klaus Schneeberger, Mayor of Wiener Neustadt.

“Our new postal base in Wiener Neustadt combines all the developments and trends of recent years. We have built an innovative site that offers our employees modern workplaces, is designed for increasing parcel volumes and exudes sustainability through and through. In Wiener Neustadt, for example, we are the first city in Lower Austria to be able to deliver CO2-free on the last mile,” says Georg Pölzl, CEO of Österreichische Post AG.

The new postal base in 2700 Wiener Neustadt has a usable area of 3,200 m². Around 100 employees sort and deliver around 5,000 parcels per day, as well as letters, brochures, newspapers and magazines in Wiener Neustadt and the surrounding communities. The new postal base has a modular structure, so that Austrian Post will be able to react flexibly to changing requirements in the future.

In the spirit of sustainable construction, the building was equipped with a green roof, a heat pump and a photovoltaic system. The charging infrastructure includes 59 charging stations and enables the entire fleet to be converted to electric drive.

A total of 73 electric vehicles now ensure CO2-free delivery on the last mile. The electricity is generated by the photovoltaic system itself, only green electricity from Austria is purchased. Every year, the post office in Wiener Neustadt will cover around 850,000 kilometres purely electrically, saving over 83,000 litres of diesel.

The total investment volume is just under eleven million euros.
