Otto mail order company close logistics site in Graz

The German Otto mail order company close its logistics site in the town of Karlsdorf close to Styrias capital Graz, and dismiss 270 employees. “We are shocked” was the first reaction of the management spokesman in Austria.

Redundancy programmes are already in development. The reason of this decision can be found in the redistribution of the logistics structure. “Winner of the situation is the customer”, claims the spokesman.

In future 98 percent of all orders should be dispatched within 24 hours without any extra charge. Such a service was not possible before the reorganization.

Lost jobs in Austria. New jobs in Germany. The company decided to extend the sort factory in Magdeburg (Saxony-Anhalt). 620 new jobs arise there.
