Northampton, 26 January 2018

Dachser UK is proud to have been honoured by the British International Freight Association at its annual awards luncheon held in London on the 18th January. The award for Staff Development was sponsored and presented by the Albacore Group at the event hosted by entrepreneur and musician, Levi Roots.

The award judges were looking for the company producing the best supply chain operatives of the future. Summing up Dachser’s achievement, they reported, “Recruiting bright, dedicated, and motivated young people, and then nurturing and developing their talent in a highly-supportive environment to release their fullest potential, is at the heart of Dachser’s strategy.”

As part of this strategy, Dachser UK’s apprenticeship programme has expanded with 14 new apprentices joining the organisation during the second half of 2017 across its four UK branches. The programme provides A-level graduates with an outstanding opportunity to gain a real insight into the logistics industry and forge a successful career. The apprentices are trained, guided and supported throughout the duration of the programme and beyond.

Over the past few years, the various apprenticeship schemes on offer at Dachser have evolved in order to continually reflect and address the needs of the developing and changing business. With this in mind, the programme has now been augmented by a specific apprenticeship which addresses the potential needs of a changing European environment as a result of the impending Brexit: ‘Customs and Business Administration’.

Dachser UK is part of the German head-quartered global logistics provider. Based in Northampton, with three further branches in Dartford, Rochdale and Bristol, Dachser UK operates a state-of-the-art logistics centre comprising a transit terminal, contract logistics warehouse which can accommodate up to 20,000 racket pallet positions, and an office building, with further contract logistics warehousing on nearby sits. Its continued growth requires an expanding and skilled workforce and Dachser is continually pro-active in developing training programmes for existing staff as well as identifying and recruiting new talent.

Rachel Bussey, HR Officer collected the award on behalf of Dachser and commented, “One of the key events for us is the National Apprenticeship Show which is held annually in March. This event allows us to meet potential candidates and raise the profile of our apprenticeship programme. The programme has been well-established for some years now, and is designed to be very relevant for our business and well as being thought-provoking for the students.”

Managing Director of Dachser UK, Nick Lowe added: “We are very proud of our apprenticeship and training programmes and this award is testament to their success and shows that our staff development approach is recognised across the industry”.

Jochen Müller becomes COO Air & Sea Logistics at Dachser

Kempten, January 23, 2018. Jochen Müller took up the role of Chief Operations Officer (COO) for Dachser’s Air & Sea Logistics business field on January 1Jochen-Mueller, 2018. He replaces Thomas Reuter, who retired at the end of last year after 39 years at Dachser. Müller joined Dachser on October 1, 2016 to prepare for his duties as COO.

As COO Air & Sea Logistics and a member of the Executive Board, Jochen Müller will continue the work of Thomas Reuter. His core duties include the further expansion of the intercontinental air and sea freight network and the connection of this network with the European road network in order to add value for customers through intermodal logistics.

Müller was born in the German city of Worms in 1964. He joined the board of Schenker Deutschland AG in 2011, where he was responsible for the Central Europe air freight region as well as sales (air/sea) and logistics for global relocations, trade fairs, and sports events. Prior to that, Müller was CEO of Schenker’s British subsidiary with responsibility for land, sea, and air freight as well as the trade fair business. “Jochen Müller has immersed himself in our corporate structures, and now has a comprehensive understanding of our business processes and the challenges we face on an international level,” says Bernhard Simon, CEO of Dachser.

Born in 1957, Thomas Reuter joined Dachser in 1978, becoming a member of the Executive Board at the start of 2006. He was a driving force in helping the provider of logistics services to develop its international business, building up a global network of air and sea freight locations. Today, Dachser Air & Sea Logistics has 172 locations of its own and over 4,000 employees, who generated some 1.5 billion euros in sales in 2016. Reuter plans to continue serving the company in an advisory capacity, but will turn his attention to matters outside Dachser’s day-to-day operations. Among other things, he will retain his seat on the board of “The WACO System” (World Air Cargo Organisation), and will represent Dachser’s interests in the Dachser joint ventures Jet-Speed GmbH and NNR + Dachser GmbH.

Dachser delivers with electric trucks

Kempten, Berlin. December 14, 2017. Dachser is the launch customer for Daimler’s all-electric FUSO eCanter light commercial vehicle. As of spring FUSO eCanter, Exterieur, E-Motor PMSM , sechs Hochvolt-Lithium-B2018, the logistics provider will be operating two of these trucks in city centers—one in Berlin, the other in Stuttgart.

Speaking at a European media event in Berlin, Stefan Hohm, Corporate Director, Corporate Solutions, Research & Development at Dachser, explained: “These trucks are part of our City Distribution project and expand our innovative and sustainable concept for city-center deliveries.” This project has Dachser combining tried and true logistics models with new ideas, providing the basis for developing robust and sustainable business models for last-mile deliveries of the future.

Depending on the requirements profile of the city in question, the local branch can implement custom solutions chosen from a modular toolbox. And part of that means finding the right combination of vehicles for downtown deliveries. “We went for the FUSO eCanter because it’s the first all-electric truck to enter full-scale production, and so it will add momentum to this entire class of commercial vehicle,” says Hohm.

Downtown deliveries

In Berlin and Stuttgart, the two FUSO eCanters will be incorporated into the core groupage business operated by Dachser’s long-established transportation companies. Their job will be to deliver pallets of manufactured goods, either to microhubs or directly to customers. They will also collect goods and bring them to Dachser’s branches in Schönefeld and Kornwestheim. “These electric trucks are ideal for city centers and that’s where they will most often be found,” says Hohm.

Depending on its design and purpose, the all-electric light truck offers a range of some 100 kilometers and a load capacity of up to 3.5 metric tons. Its electric powertrain comprises six high-voltage lithium-ion batteries, each one with 420 V and 13.8 kWh.

Another section of the building offers space for additional loading stations and parking spaces.

With both Günther Platter, governor of Tyrol, and Michel Huber, mayor of Stans, in attendance, Dachser’s managing director European logistics Dachser Austria Günter Hirschbeck and his Tyrolean team performed the symbolic breaking of the ground at the Tyrol logistics center. “Over the next few months, a modern facility will be erected at this site, which will form an important part of the logistics network in western Austria and beyond,” Hirschbeck said in his opening speech. “With this new site, we are supporting the region and are adding 40 new jobs to the existing 45,” he said.

Starting in late 2017, Dachser’s Stans-based facility will offer its customers everything from a single source: customized contract logistics services and a direct connection to the seamless European transport network and worldwide air and sea freight services by Dachser Air & Sea Logistics.

With ten locations in Austria, Dachser has a strong branch network with which to offer its customers ideal market proximity.

Azkar becomes Dachser

Kempten/Munich, May 9, 2017. In roughly four years, Dachser has integrated its Iberian subsidiary Azkar Group into its European road network. The overland transport organizations will operate under the names of Dachser Spain and Dachser Portugal in the future. This was announced today by CEO Bernhard Simon, COO Road Logistics Michael Schilling, and Juan Antonio Quintana, Managing Director European Logistics Iberia, at the transport logistic trade fair in Munic170509 DACHSER European Logistics Iberiah.

This rebranding is the culmination of an integration process that began in January 2013 with Dachser’s acquisition of Azkar. The companies had already been cooperating since 2007, and one year later Dachser purchased a stake of 10 percent in its then partner for Spain. “The two companies were an excellent match right from the word go. We share the same values, and we have the same corporate culture and business vision,” explains Bernhard Simon. “On this basis, we were able to advance quickly and smoothly with the integration. Simultaneously, we have achieved profitable growth on the Iberian Peninsula every year since the takeover.”

Since the acquisition, Dachser has closely integrated its organizations in Spain and Portugal into its European groupage network. The 70 daily import and export lines that existed in 2013 have increased to 130 today, while the number of shipments from and to Europe grew by 40 percent over the same period. Michael Schilling emphasizes the advantages of a standardized European groupage network: “What you see is what you get. If it’s got Dachser’s name on it, then there’s Dachser in it – customers can bank on that. In addition to integrated IT systems, standardized processes, workflows, and network rules are the foundations for reliability, safety, and quality.”

Switch to Dachser colors
A rebranding is accompanying the end of the integration. The national subsidiaries will operate under the names of Dachser Spain and Dachser Portugal in the future. “That was our goal, which was advocated by employees, management, and customers,” underscores Juan Antonio Quintana. “The Dachser network underpins our success. We’re now playing in a completely different league than we were four years ago, and we can support customers in their worldwide growth. Accordingly, it is only logical that we take the next step and also become Dachser in our branding.” Five branches – in Barcelona, Bilbao, Malaga, Porto, and Valencia – are already decked out in the blue and yellow colors, and the rest are due to follow by 2020. Of the approximately 2,000 short-haul trucks, over 70 percent already sport the Dachser branding today.

“Being united under the Dachser banner benefits employees and benefits customers even more,” concludes Bernhard Simon. “That’s why, with network expansions in mind, we’re investing in jobs, facilities, and in the integration of systems and processes. On the Iberian Peninsula today, we’re beginning a new chapter in our shared success story.”

Dachser on the Iberian Peninsula
In Spain and Portugal, Dachser is active with its European Logistics (formerly Azkar Group) and Air & Sea Logistics (formerly Transunion) business lines and employs 3,353 people at 87 locations. In the Food Logistics business line, Dachser has been collaborating with the partner Logifrío since the start of 2016 as part of the European Food Network. As one of the largest logistics providers on the Iberian Peninsula, Dachser is positioning itself in overland transport as an export-oriented one-stop shop for all logistics requirements. This includes groupage and full-truck-load transports as well as warehousing, value added services, and the Iberian B2B parcel business. New customers for international business are opening up to Dachser Spain and Dachser Portugal in the Business Line European Logistics through avenues such as the Dachser DIY-Logistics and Dachser Chem-Logistics industry solutions. For customers from the chemical industry, a dangerous goods organization was introduced in 48 branches in 2016. One location has already been evaluated in accordance with SQAS.

The air and sea freight organizations in Spain and Portugal, which are headed by Federico Camáñez, Managing Director Air & Sea Logistics Southern Europe, are present at the main airports and seaports by virtue of eleven locations and ensure connection to intercontinental markets. To this end, an air freight gateway was established in Madrid in 2017.

On the Iberian Peninsula in 2016, Dachser transported some 20.5 million shipments with a weight of around 3.0 million tons and achieved sales revenue of around EUR 741 million. In total, Dachser offers its customers in Spain and Portugal a warehouse area of 424,000 square meters with 362.000 pallet spaces.
