DACHSER at LogiMAT 2018, Hall 6, Booth D20

DACHSER’s appearance at LogiMAT 2018 (Stuttgart, March 13-15) has digitalization written all over it. At the DACHSER booth, contract logistics managers will be explaining how the company is connecting digital data and physical goods movement in its warehouses.

In the latest “Top 100 in Logistics in Europe” study, DACHSER once again takes the top spot in the European groupage transportation segment. And on the “special transports” market (including food logistics), the company rose from seventh to fourth place.
DACHSER is the launch customer for Daimler’s all-electric FUSO eCanter light commercial vehicle. As of spring 2018, the logistics provider will be operating two of these trucks in city centers—one in Berlin, the other in Stuttgart.
As part of the presentation of the European Transport Award for Sustainability (ETPN), this year DACHSER received the Special Award for Corporate Social Responsibility. The company came first in the Transportation and Forwarding Companies category.

Market Information

As already informed in August 2017, the consistently strong air freight demand has continued and lead to the expected very tight air cargo market, which causes capacity bottlenecks and strong increases of air freight rates.
In response to the capacity crunch in the upcoming peak season starting from last week of October, DACHSER will be launching a once a week charter rotation service from Frankfurt to Shanghai, Pudong Airport (and back) for the calendar weeks 44-50.
Due to the consistently strong air freight market and expected strong business in the fall, early capacity bottlenecks are predicted for 2017. Whereas an earlier peak season is expected for shipments from Europe to Asia (and vice-versa), capacities on the transatlantic route are already being heavily utilized.
Continuous rainfall caused severe floods in the Indian state Gujarat. The government authorities called in the Army and the Air Force for help. The floodings created disruptions in rail and road transport as well as air and sea freight which will lead to delays in delivery.

Job vacancies

No industry is developing is rapidly as a logistics; almost no other economic sector is said to have such a huge potential for growth. Continued globalization will require more and more specialized solutions in order to manage the global flow of goods in a reliable, timely and cost-efficient manner.
