Companies of every size and from all sectors of industry and trade benefit from a strong European logistics network. By trusting in DACHSER European Logistics for all their logistics needs, the logistics balance sheet is optimized via targeted outsourcing. Synergy effects in the supply chain also create economic advantages: The high degree of capacity utilization in the DACHSER fleet through goods consolidation and set routes between DACHSER branches reduces logistics costs and simultaneously optimizes transit times. The unified logistics systems, processes and IT solutions and services developed by DACHSER offer the customer the highest degree of security. The transport of break bulk cargo or groupage consolidation as whole or partial shipments – Full Truck Load (FTL) or Less Than Truck Load (LTL) – is carried out via an intelligent combination of direct deliveries and network transport. They are operated via the logistics centers of the Eurohubs and platforms.

The DACHSER Eurohubs in Überherrn (Saarland), Bratislava (Slovakia) and Clermont-Ferrand (France) act as centers through which all goods bound for common destinations are consolidated.

The global air and sea freight network of DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics enables intercontinental connections for all European transports. To this end, we have established our own branches which – supplemented by strong local partners – ensure a seamless process. Frankfurt Airport (air) and all Europe's major harbors such as Hamburg, Bremen, Antwerp, Rotterdam, Le Havre, Marseille and Valencia (sea) are the central hubs for the DACHSER Gateway Strategy. They are the connecting points between the European and global air and sea freight networks. This allows for the optimization of flight departures and goods despatch in sea transport.

The most modern technology and trained personnel are the prerequisites for the protection of the goods and for comprehensive quality management. Goods security includes digital video monitoring, strict access restrictions for all DACHSER facilities and the ongoing training of employees on the most important concerns of the company. Additional routine measures include regular quality controls in the branches and the seamless monitoring of the product flow via ActiveReport. Furthermore, all status information is available in realtime via our own, web-based tracking and tracing system.
