DACHSER focuses on more loading space

Since April 2021, DACHSER has opted exclusively for so-called ‘mega trailers’ when purchasing new semi-trailers in Germany. Because of their more generous cargo space dimensions - with otherwise the same length and width - the mega trailers achieve better fuel economy than standard semi-trailers, especially over long distances. Full conversion of the German fleet is scheduled to be completed by 2027, with some 680 new mega trailers in total. In the next few years, DACHSER will also start replacing its fleets in the 24 other European countries where it is represented through its European Logistics business line.

Current situation in India and the impact on DACHSER’s operations

Regarding the current situation in India, we would like to give an update about DACHSER’s operations in India. The situation as of today, April 28, 2021, is as follows:

Most branch offices across India are being kept closed as a precautionary measure due to the sudden rise of COVID cases. Our teams are working from home, with only skeletal staff at the offices and hence there are likely to be delays in responses due to the ongoing crisis. As a consequence of the lockdown, there are some operational impacts for air, sea, customs clearance and domestic trucking.

Air Freight:

  • Most countries have barred passenger traffic from India leading to no passenger carrying flights operating on International routes from/to India
  • This has created some additional constraint on already stressed space availability situation
  • Rates are bound to inch upwards for all sectors
  • Transit times too have increased as a consequence of capacity crunch

Sea Freight:

  • Sea freight was already facing the challenges due to the Suez Canal blockage end of March.
  • Ports and terminals are functioning normally, but vessel schedules are impacted by the Suez Canal blockage as well as the sudden rise of COVID cases in India.Therefore delays are expected. Customers are advised to factor in delays of 1-2 weeks while planning their inventories.
  • We expect more delays in communication or operations due to increasing COVID infections among staff at ports, customs, CFS and shipping lines.

Customs:

  • We do not have any unexpected disruptions in cargo movement in India, nor is any work stoppage expected at present.
  • Customs clearance activities are functional at the movement.
  • Customs is working with less manpower, no Customs Brokers is allowed to meet the customs officials, all processes is done faceless and things are moving in slow phase.

At DACHSER, we have undertaken significant measures to ensure our employees’ health and safety, at the same time continue to manage our day-to-day operations with minimal impact to our customers’ supply chains. Our teams are working diligently by all possible means in these testing times to assist and to overcome the challenges being faced.

Please rest assured that we will keep you updated of any changes to the current situation. In case of questions, please feel free to contact your local DACHSER representative in the region.

Change of the toll in the Czech Republic

The Czech government has changed the toll logic and rates as of January 01, 2021. Accordingly, the toll rates for freeways and federal roads have been aligned and external costs, such as air pollution and noise pollution caused by trucks, have now been additionally taken into account. This leads to a significant increase in the toll rates.

The toll charged by the Czech Republic will be reimbursed in full to the hauliers used by DACHSER according to vehicle type and distance. In this way, DACHSER is making its contribution to maintaining the competitiveness of independent hauliers and securing freight space in the Czech Republic.
