Compliance - Integrity is a question of attitude

“Integrity in Logistics” is the self-imposed moral commitment of the major family-led company DACHSER. It is based upon respect for society, its citizens and their norms, which must be respected, followed and upheld. This is done both as part of our daily work as well as in our interactions with others.

DACHSER Compliance Management covers both the internal company Code of Conduct as well as the DACHSER conduct guidelines. These mandatory rules and guidelines clearly specify that all DACHSER employees are to act ethically and legally in carrying out their tasks and services and consistently adhere to national laws. This also applies to the customs, traditions and societal values of each state and society.

DACHSER Group SE & Co. KG Managing Board Compliance Statement (2019)

Our compliance motto, “Integrity in logistics”, underscores our company’s efforts to ensure that our collaboration with all our customers is built on trust. At the same time, it highlights how DACHSER promotes constructive collaboration along the logistics supply chain.

When it comes to compliance, trust is an essential element. Long-term collaboration is possible only when you can be sure of your business partner’s integrity. A culture of trust is the definitive basis for successful collaboration—not only with third parties, but also within an organization.

We expect our colleagues to act with integrity, both within our organization and especially within their own teams, in line with internal compliance requirements. Our DACHSER Compliance Management System provides the necessary degree of control to ensure that trust in us is well placed.

However, trust cannot be a one-way street. If trust is felt to be a one-sided demand, then our understanding of “Integrity in logistics” is unlikely to lead to success. Only when everyone involved in the process is equally committed to collaboration built on trust can we hope to deliver sustainable success to the benefit of our company.

An essential building block of our Compliance Management System is unconditional observance of competition and antitrust legislation. DACHSER is committed to the principle of free and fair competition and respects market forces. It is DACHSER’s unconditional corporate policy to conduct all business in accordance with the competition and antitrust legislation applicable in each case. Any and all arrangements, agreements, or consultations with the competition, as well as any anticompetitive exchange of data or information, are expressly forbidden and DACHSER will not tolerate such conduct. Infringements of this will have consequences arising from competition, antitrust, and labor law.
