This strategic investment underscores Gruber Logistics’ commitment to expansion, following a period of significant growth. Pre-pandemic turnover reached around €360 million, and the company has since doubled that figure through organic growth and strategic acquisitions, including the integration of German firm Universal Transport.

The new hub represents a major step forward for Gruber Logistics, strategically placing them at the heart of a key European freight traffic hub. Building upon their 40-year presence in Verona, this investment strengthens their local presence and operational capabilities.

The facility boasts 70 loading bays and is expected to create 100 new jobs by year-end. This expansion allows Gruber Logistics to manage daily departures throughout Europe, further enhancing their logistics network.

Verona has always been a vital hub for our operations, said Christian Gruber, President of Gruber Logistics. This new facility reinforces our commitment to serving customers efficiently and reliably, streamlining their operations. The investment allows us to solidify our position in logistics, international and national distribution, and intermodal transport sectors.

The Verona hub will serve as a central point for Gruber Logistics, optimising logistical operations.

Our market value proposition lies in offering integrated solutions to customers, explained Marcello Corazzola, Board Member and Managing Director. This focus is evident in our infrastructural investments. Verona is a multi-service hub where logistics, national and international distribution, and intermodal transport activities work synergistically.

The partnership between Gruber Logistics and Interporto Quadrante Europa extends beyond a simple landlord-tenant relationship. Both organisations collaborate on promoting key issues like digitalisation and sustainability through joint research and innovation projects, with some funded by the European Commission. Existing projects focus on digital cooperation for promoting intermodality, while future initiatives explore the potential of artificial intelligence solutions for logistics flow management and digital twins for infrastructure management.
