Press Releases

In roughly four years, DACHSER has integrated its Iberian subsidiary Azkar Group into its European road network. The overland transport organizations will operate under the names of DACHSER Spain and DACHSER Portugal in the future. This was announced today by CEO Bernhard Simon, COO Road Logistics Michael Schilling, and Juan Antonio Quintana, Managing Director European Logistics Iberia, at the transport logistic trade fair in Munich.
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 has promoted its Head of Contract Logistics, Alexander Tonn, to become the new Managing Director of European Logistics Germany. The 43-year old Tonn will take up his new position on January 1, 2017 to oversee business development of the 38 German branch offices in the European Logistics business line (overland transport and contract logistics for industrial goods). He will report to Michael Schilling, COO Road Logistics and Deputy Chairman of the Executive Board, who will continue to be responsible for this position in addition to his duties until the end of the year.
DACHSER reports strong, organic growth for fiscal year 2015. Consolidated revenue increased by 6.5 percent to EUR 5.64 billion. Shipments rose by 4.0 percent to 78.1 million, while tonnage increased by 5.2 percent to 37.3 million metric tons. The primary contributors for the positive performance were the overland freight services for food and industrial goods in Europe.

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.

We went even further: we found solutions, together with a way in which we can progress.

EUR 8, 7% more than in 2013 and exports 10.1 billion, up by 9, 8% from the same year. Thus the increase in imports and exports to and from Germany was more than the increase of around 5% of the total Romanian exports and imports.
In the beginning was the idea, which gave birth to innovation. Then DACHSER fundamentally shook up the logistics industry once again. The 85-year company history gives many examples.
