As of October 1, 2017, DACHSER logistics experts and Fraunhofer IML researchers have joined forces to work together on research and development projects
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.

Market Information

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.
During October and November there will be several holidays in Europe with driving-bans in place during those holidays. Especially the two holidays on October 31 and November 1 (week 44) will have influence on the hauling material that is available. Many companies are also closed on October 30. We will have a limited service as a result of these holidays.
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.
The ports of Antwerp and Rotterdam are currently heavily congested due to multiple factors, including the restructure of shipping alliances, raising cargo volume and the usage of bigger vessels. The cyber attack earlier at the end of June worsened the situation.

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.
