DACHSER Karlsruhe starts making deliveries by cargo bike
Effective immediately, DACHSER’s Karlsruhe logistics center is deploying pedelecs for city-center deliveries. This move by the logistics provider is a response to environmental issues such as air quality, but also to the increasing number of traffic jams and construction zones that make it difficult to deliver to city centers with conventional trucks.
Stronger Air Freight Market causes early capacity bottlenecks
Due to the consistently strong air freight market and expected strong business in the current fall, we expect further capacity bottlenecks.
Whereas a heavy growing peak season for shipments from Asia to Europe (and vice-versa) is expected, capacities on the transatlantic route are already being heavily utilized.
For this reason, it is recommended that air freight shipments be booked as soon as possible, so that they can be dispatched as planned.
The experts at the DACHSER air freight organization have been working on various measures for the current fall peak season (for example, having DACHSER charter its own flights, shifting goods flows to smaller airports, and increasing standing capacities at strategic airline partners). These preparations make it possible for DACHSER to continue to fulfill our customers’ quality demands to their complete satisfaction, despite the expected growth.
Your local DACHSER team will be pleased to accept your shipment orders and can support you in planning your air freight shipments.

Increase in truck tolls in Germany from January 1, 2019
Following the expansion of truck tolls to include highways in July 2018, the German government has now decided to increase tolls for trucks of all classes, effective January 1, 2019.
The German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure published the basis for the increase in truck tolls as part of the infrastructure cost study 2018-2022. The study lays out how the toll rates for freeways and highways are to be aligned while taking into account external costs such as air and noise pollution caused by trucks. This leads to a considerable rise in toll rates, which means yet another significant cost hit for our short- and long-distance transports.
For this reason, your toll rates will change as of January 1, 2019. We will of course make the adjusted toll table available to you in advance.
Tolls will be refunded in full to carriers used by DACHSER according to vehicle type and distance covered. In this way, DACHSER is doing its part to support the continued competitiveness of independent carriers and also to secure transportation capacity in Germany.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
