DACHSER expands Europe’s connection with Chile with new LCL service
DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics expands its LCL-Service (Less-than-Container-Load) with a new service range from Europe to Chile. A new fixed weekly schedule of LCL services is departing from Hamburg to San Antonio.
“Referring to ‘less than container load,’ our new LCL service is designed to meet the specific needs of our customers with smaller merchandise quantities. The service not only optimizes efficiencies and reduces costs, but the fixed weekly schedule improves the planning process,” said Guido Gries, Managing Director, DACHSER Americas. With this consolidated maritime freight service, DACHSER collects container shipments from several European countries, for example Germany, Belgium Denmark und Poland, and consolidates the freight at its warehouse in Hamburg. From there, the shipment departs to its final destination of San Antonio in Chile. With its constantly growing network across the globe, DACHSER is creating ideal conditions for keeping goods moving along the supply chain. Businesses benefit from seamless connection of customer markets in Chile, including collection and delivery of their valuable goods, from door-to-door.
“An effective LCL service comes down to timing—from the coordination of the grouping of goods and to the fixed container trips between ports. Our management of this timing allows our customers the benefit of improved planning and transit times as well as transparency of their shipments,” added Gries. Further, DACHSER offers interlocked logistics solutions through its DACHSER Road Logistics and DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics business fields, with services including transportation, warehousing and complementing value-added services. DACHSER also handles pre-carriage through its comprehensive European overland transportation network.
Connection to Germany and beyond
“The service offers customers streamlined container coordination and management of all sea freight imports,” added Mr. Gries. “With our extensive European logistics network we can offer seamless visibility from the door of the supplier in Europe to the final destination.”
The new LCL services add to DACHSER’s already existing LCL service offerings and wide range of rapidly growing destinations. DACHSER allows customers a greater flexibility and choice by continuing to increase the number of destinations served.
