Dachser opens branch office in St. Gallen

Kempten/St. Gallen, 17 October 2011. With a new location in St. Gallen, the Dachser Air & Sea Logistics business field now serves the eastern part of Switzerland even better through its global air and sea freight network.

St. Gallen is now the fourth Dachser Air & Sea Logistics branch office in Switzerland in addition to Basle, Geneva and Zurich. Customers in eastern Switzerland have been looked after by a sales rep since 2007. The new branch office will enable the logistics provider to offer even better service. “We believe an operating facility will enable us to significantly expand our service offering,” says Florian Schwizer, manager of the new branch office.

The service portfolio extends from air and sea freight imports and exports, to warehousing and the handling of customs modalities. The St. Gallen location is optimally linked to Dachser’s overland network, enabling it to offer customers an integrated and transparent door-to-door service. “Eastern Switzerland is an up-and-coming economic region. The proximity to the borders with Germany and Austria has advantages: new routes to the EU area mean shorter transport times,” explains Dachser Air & Sea Logistics’ managing director, Thomas Reuter.

In 2010, the internationally operating logistics provider Dachser generated total revenue of EUR 3.8 billion. 19,250 staff working in 310 profit centres worldwide handled 46.2 million consignments weighing a total of 35.5 million tonnes.
