All across Germany, 645 young adults started their training at the logistics company DACHSER. They had a number of professional placement options to choose from: two in business, two in IT, two in the trades, and one as a professional truck driver. The family business in cooperation with universities also offers courses in business administration with a focus on freight forwarding, transport, logistics, computer science, or business IT.
Logistics provider DACHSER is investing some 6.5 million euros in a new 20,000-square-meter facility in Stans in Tyrol, Austria. DACHSER Austria has now held the symbolic groundbreaking ceremony for the new terminal, which is scheduled to begin operations in late 2017 and will create 40 new jobs.
On March 25, during the open days of the sea- and transport high school STC in Rotterdam, Edwin Vermeulen, General Manager DACHSER Logistics Centre Rotterdam, handed over different DACHSER pictures to seal the cooperation between the two organizations. The logistic service provider and the educational institution have been working intensively together for 10 years with the purpose to inspire students for a career in logistics.
DACHSER Waddinxveen took the opportunity to participate in the development of the book “Havenlogistiek, over cargadoor en expediteur”. This study book will be used on the sea- and transport high school STC in Rotterdam, which is also the publisher of this book. It is an important reference book for the logistic processes in Rotterdam as well as for young people who are looking for a career in logistics.

Market Information

Due to the consistently strong air freight market and expected strong business in the fall, early capacity bottlenecks are predicted for 2017.

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.
In our normal network we service various countries in Western and Easter Europe. In particular the month of August is seen as a major month for holiday. This means that shipments to clients will have to be advised first before delivery. This could lead to a delay of 1 day minimum. We need to advise the shipment because in many countries companies are closed for a certain period during the holidays. Apart from this many European countries have the following bank-holidays in the months of July and August :
