The Chemical Industry Association (Verband der Chemischen Industrie e.V. or VCI) has extended its purchasing alliance with Dachser for another two years. The partners have enjoyed a successful collaboration on European groupage shipments from Germany since 2009 and extended it to include Air & Sea freight transport in 2015.
DACHSER continued to grow in fiscal year 2016, generating consolidated gross revenue of around 5.71 billion euros—representing a consolidated revenue increase of 1.7 percent on the previous year. The number of shipments rose by 2.4 percent to 80.0 million, and tonnage by 2.4 percent to 38.2 million metric tons. This growth was driven by European overland transport as well as food logistics.
DACHSER is currently creating new capacity for its overland network at several German locations. In the north, the Bremen and Hamburg locations are being expanded. Building is also under way in Alsdorf near Aachen and Dissen near Bielefeld. In total, DACHSER is investing some EUR 60 million at the four locations, creating nearly 35,000 square meters of additional warehouse and office space.
All that unused space on a trailer roof – is it possible to install photovoltaic modules there and make optimum use of the resulting energy? DACHSER and the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE are currently investigating this question by sending a test solar trailer onto the streets of Ulm, Germany.
