Extended availability of the product targo on-site (curbside delivery)
The change in consumer purchasing behavior in the corona period shows a strong demand for B2C shipments in the course of the last few weeks. This trend will certainly continue. For this reason, the targo on-site product (curbside delivery) is now available in almost all countries of the DACHSER European Logistics network for customers in which it was previously not possible to book B2C consignments.
targo on-site thus ensures uniform product availability and the service promise to our customers within the DACHSER network.
targo on-site is part of the entargo product family and stands for the delivery of B2C consignments to the curb. As an online platform, it is extremely important to make explicit reference to this fact in order to be able to make a reliable delivery statement to online customers. In Europe, entargo stands for a uniform range of services and ensures consistently high quality standards both nationally and internationally.
Please note that for the product targo on-site (curbside delivery) no delivery time specifications are possible. The time slots for deliveries are agreed exclusively with the respective recipient. Please also read our updated general terms and conditions.
If you have any questions, please get in touch with your contact at the relevant DACHSER branch.

Brexit checklist - what should you watch out for?
What should DACHSER customers pay attention to in the case of a hard Brexit?
Delays when it comes to border crossing would be a major challenge in the case of a hard Brexit - the other would be the new bureaucratic burden of goods traffic with Great Britain.
