Glee presents the best of DIY products and DACHSER has the solution to get them to market

6th  September, 2019

Every year, the GLEE Exhibition hosted at the NEC in Birmingham is a great venue to showcase the very best of DIY products and services. This year’s show will be held between 10th  – 12th September. DACHSER, the global logistics operator, will present its tailored DIY logistics solutions and will be the perfect opportunity for businesses to learn more about getting their products to market quickly and reliably.

From stand no. 19L12, DACHSER’s team of logistics professionals will explain how their DIY logistics solution has grown and adapted with the industry, and the essential factors for successful product delivery to markets throughout the world, both today and in the future.

21 years ago DACHSER launched its logistics solution for the German DIY industry to offer flexible and integrated supply chain services for home and garden improvement equipment. This specialist service is now offered to both UK exporters and importers. 

DACHSER’s expertise throughout Europe has grown, along with the DIY and garden market. Its continuous development and steady growth has created a deep understanding of the needs of the industry, now reflected in the tailored solutions offered by DACHSER DIY logistics services.

The core services in the DIY logistics solution combine integrated IT solutions with transport, warehousing, value added services, as well as comprehensive customs experience, all benefiting from DACHSER’s extensive global network.

This expansion now includes DACHSER’s new facility in Rochdale in the North West of England, due to open in September 2019. The new 5,175 square metre logistics centre has been developed on a 3.7-hectare (9.2 acre) site and represents a GBP 14.4 million investment by the company.

It is evidence of DACHSER’s commitment to the UK market and the company’s optimistic view on the future of both import and export trade with the rest of Europe.

Such optimism extends to the UK’s DIY sector and for DACHSER DIY logistics there is every indication that the future will bring further growth, as visitors to the exhibition stand at GLEE will soon discover.
