Shipments rose by 4.0 percent to 78.1 million, while tonnage increased by 5.2 percent to 37.3 million metric tons.

Traian Dumitrescu, Managing Director of DACHSER Romania, presented as a guest speaker at the Conference Series “Expand your Horizons” organized by the Academy of Economic Studies. As a graduate of the Academy, Traian Dumitrescu shared with the MBA students his personal journey of over 16 years experience in management.
The buzzword “logistics balance sheet” is the focus of the title story in this issue of the DACHSER magazine: how can companies make the success of logistics strategies, concepts, and activities measurable?


When the handling staff load the swap bodies or the semi-trailers for long-haul transport, they have to summon up the skills of a Tetris champion. The aim is to load as many goods as possible on the floor or in double-decker fashion whilst ensuring there are no gaps which could cause the goods to slide out of place. The dimensions, packaging, weight limits or arrival times of local transport vehicles often make the task more difficult than one would think. Luckily though there are practical tools to help make loading secure and safe.
Hardly any other trade route in the world is as shrouded in myth as the Silk Road. The roughly 11,000-kilometer overland route between China and Europe is currently experiencing a renaissance as an alternative to air and sea freight. DACHSER is one of the companies that sends goods by train. It then feeds them into its groupage network, and companies like Wilo SE in Dortmund are reaping the rewards.
Transports and logistics can only be seen together with the IT industry in the following decades. The interdependency of the two fields is impossible to be denied. Without a doubt, the information and communication technologies will greatly contribute towards co-modality by improving infrastructure, traffic and fleet management. Moreover, IT industry will decisively contribute to a better tracking and tracing of goods across the transport networks and will definitely bring better connection between businesses and administrations. What does co-modality mean? It is the optimal combination of different modes of transport within the same transport chain.
The transport and logistics sector is one of the most dynamic sectors of the Romanian economy. Its dynamics is generated by the strong competition between the big players and by the difficulties they have to surpass. In an extremely competitive and very demanding economic climate, DACHSER Romania found answers to the new challenges of the market. We went even further: we found solutions, together with a way in which we can progress.
