Logistics provider Gebrüder Weiss is part of an important space program, trusted with the job of safely transporting sensitive equipment to a mission simulation site in Armenia.

As a partner of the Austrian Space Forum’s Mars Analog Mission (OeWF), this is the second time the company has transported equipment containers from Innsbruck, a journey that needs constant monitoring.

“We have regular transports to the region and are represented in Armenia with our own location,” said Chief Executive Officer of Gebrüder Weiss, Wolfram Senger-Weiss. “The route leads through countries with Gebrüder Weiss locations, but such a complex project requires additional specialists to permanently monitor the transport. In projects like these, we see ourselves not only as a logistics partner, but also as responsible for shaping the future of mobility.”

Apart from transport services, Gebrüder Weiss also provides a test site at the Maria Lanzendorf location near Vienna, where, at the end of January, the OeWF will run through its routines one final time, prior to departing for the actual mission site in Armenia.

“This is the dress rehearsal for the team and the hardware,” said the Director of the OeWF, Gernot Grömer. “The days in Vienna make a significant contribution to the success of the mission and we appreciate the extended support and the valuable partnership provided by Gebrüder Weiss.”

The mission itself starts on 7 March, 2024.
