Transunion becomes Dachser

Kempten/Valencia, 16 December 2013. A little more than ten months after the acquisition by Dachser, the Spanish air and sea freight forwarder Transunion, S.A., is completing its integration into the network of the global logistics provider. Starting on 1 January 2014, the company will be operating as DACHSER Spain Air & Sea Logistics, S.A.U.

The rebranding also relates to the former national subsidiaries of Transunion. The name change has been completed in Turkey (as DACHSER Turkey Hava ve Deniz Tasimaciligi A.S.) and Peru (as DACHSER Peru S.A.C.). The country organization in Argentina will start to operate as DACHSER Argentina S.A. January 1st 2014.

“The air and sea freight business knows no national boundaries. Large customers want to work with a logistics service provider that offers them consistent processes and quality standards worldwide,” explains Thomas Reuter, Managing Director of DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics.

Federico Camáñez, CEO of Transunion and, starting on 1/1/2014, Country Manager of DACHSER Spain Air & Sea Logistics, S.A.U. adds: “We also want to demonstrate with our company name that we now belong to the network of 160 air and sea freight locations of Dachser. Our customers benefit from this expanded global network; at the same time, they will keep their established contacts in the branches even after the name change, of course.”

Dachser acquired Transunion in January 2013 after more than fifteen years of cooperation. In 2012, the family business with headquarters in Valencia, Spain, generated revenue of around 100 million euros.
