DACHSER Brazil opens new office in Curitiba
Since launching in Brazil ten years ago, global logistics provider DACHSER has built up a strong presence in the Brazilian market. To keep pace with this growth, the company has now expanded the size of its office in the major city of Curitiba by almost half.
Curitiba, the capital city of the Brazilian state of Paraná, is one of the country’s most important export and import hubs. From here, the country’s main distribution networks extend out to neighboring states and to Paranaguá. This port city is about 55 miles (90 kilometers) from Curitiba and ships goods to the rest of Brazil and to Argentina, Bolivia, and Paraguay. The airport of São José dos Pinhais, which is located in the Curitiba metropolitan area, handles international flights with large-capacity and cargo aircraft.
Potential for logistics services
“Brazil has enormous potential for logistics services,” says João Paulo Caldana, Managing Director of DACHSER Brazil. “Our growth in Curitiba is designed to strengthen the local and regional activities of our company: sea and air transportation, and warehousing and transport.” DACHSER recently also expanded its offices in the Brazilian port city of Santos and in the capital cities of Argentina and Chile.
