Dachser Air & Sea Logistics launches operations in Sweden

Kempten/Gothenburg, May 21, 2019 – Dachser Air & Sea Logistics enters the Swedish market and now has an office for air and sea freight in Gothenburg.

“For us, Dachser Air & Sea Logistics Sweden is a further investment in our global air and sea freight network and a way to build up our position in the Scandinavian market,” says Jochen Müller, COO, Air & Sea Logistics. Up until now, Dachser has had branch offices for air and sea freight in Denmark and Finland. “Our new office in Gothenburg lets us offer our Swedish customers access via Dachser to global markets,” Müller adds. The service portfolio comprises all global air, sea, and rail services as well as customs clearance and warehousing.

Dachser has eight employees at the new location in Gothenburg, and plans to have 20 experts for air and sea freight there in the long run. Gothenburg is the second-largest city in Sweden and has the largest export harbor in northern Europe. The city is located on an E-road highway that is one of the most important north-south road connections for Sweden and Norway.

Working together with the Swedish overland transport organization, which has four offices in Sweden, Dachser can now offer its existing and potential customers the full portfolio of multimodal logistics services.

Anna Bergdahl, the head of the new country organization for air and sea freight in Sweden, is a seasoned logistics manager. “In the long run, interlocking with our overland transport activities will make us a strong service provider in Scandinavia and put us in a position to offer customers all our services,” says Bergdahl, Country Manager, Dachser Air & Sea Logistics Sweden.

Dachser Air & Sea Logistics opened a branch office in Kolding, Denmark in 2018. In Denmark, Dachser Air & Sea Logistics has offices in Copenhagen and Kolding; in Finland, it has offices in Helsinki and three further locations.
