The logistics firm


For almost 50 years, Schneckenreither has stood for reliability and quality – first of all within transportation and shipping and for some years now also within the logistics sector.
Internationale Spedition Schneckenreither is a company within the Schneckenreither Group, which has three service branches with a total of 130 trucks and around 400 employees: Schneckenreither Vermietung und Leasing GmbH acts as an agent and leases land and buildings throughout Austria. With Zeller Transporte headquartered in Ansfelden and TFP, s.r.o. headquartered in Trenčín, Slovakia, the company handles purely transportation orders. The third arm of the Group is Internationale Spedition Schneckenreither Gesellschaft m.b.H., which offers its customers a complete logistics portfolio including conventional goods transport, part-load and full-load transportation across Europe, sea freight and air freight around the world, and logistics services.
As well as the headquarters in Ansfelden, Austria, the company has branches in Wiener Neudorf, Graz, and Klagenfurt, operating sites in Wels, Linz, and Marchtrenk, and two proprietary shipping premises in Prague and Budapest to keep in constant close contact with its customers. Founded in 1960, the company remains a 100% family-owned business to this day, run by brothers Wolfgang and Alfred Schneckenreither – the second generation of managing partners.

Size of warehouse: 48437,6 square feet.
META products installed: META MULTIPAL pallet racking system

The task


The logistics branch of the Group in particular has undergone above-average growth in recent years, and also has the most potential for growth in future. Its almost 30-year customer relationship with a renowned Austrian sweets manufacturer means that Schneckenreither possesses a wealth of expertise when it comes to temperature-managed food storage. Not least due to the company’s good reputation did the sweets manufacturer commit to an additional warehouse with the logistics service provider.
The particular challenge was to ensure perfect climate control between 15 and 18 degrees and optimum equipping of the warehouse with racks within the shortest time possible.


Internationale Spedition Schneckenreither distributes sweets across Europe as required up to 18 hours a day from the new warehouse in Wels.

Customer statement

Alfred Schneckenreither explains: “As logistics experts, we develop individual solutions for each of our customers. We don’t do “off-the-rack” storage; we offer bespoke logistics concepts to ensure we are constantly an expert logistics partner for our customers.”
“Because we always plan for the long term, quality is crucial to us. META-Regalbau offered us from the start a system that is high quality and meets all our requirements.”
“META provided us with expert advice and support from the initial idea right through to commissioning. We will definitely turn to Edwin Zellner at META-Lagertechnik for our future racking projects,” concludes Alfred Schneckenreither.
