Austria as an economic area
Austria is the fourth richest country in the EU and has a highly developed infrastructure. The service sector, especially tourism, dominates the economy as the most successful industry. The logistics industry also plays an important role, because as a transit country to Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe, Austria is considered one of the most important logistics hubs. Due to the favorable location, the forwarding companies have excellent Eastern Europe know-how. Import and export goods are to a large extent machines, vehicle parts and food.
The transport infrastructure in Austria
Austria's transport infrastructure is characterized by its location in the Alps. Therefore, the roads of the Alpine republic are exposed to strong weather conditions, among other things. This applies equally to bridges and tunnels in the Alpine landscape.
Austria's road network has a total length of about 115,000 km. Of this, 2,185 km are on highways on which a maximum speed of 130 km/h applies in Austria. For freight forwarders and pan-European transports, Austria represents an important transit country due to its narrow shape.
