DACHSER opens joint venture in Indonesia

PT DACHSER Indonesia now offers services ranging from air and sea freight to customs processing. Headquartered in Jakarta, the joint venture, in which DACHSER is the largest shareholder, launched operations with currently 25 employees. Additional locations in the country will be added in 2014.

"Our presence in Indonesia means that—after Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia—we now have a foothold in another Southeast Asian country that is experiencing strong growth. Not only are we expanding our service portfolio for intra-Asian transport—especially our cooperation with Singapore—but we are also further connecting the region to our global logistics network," says Thomas Reuter, Managing Director of DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics.

Steven Ryan, who worked for more than 20 years in the industry, has been tasked with directing the country organization. He recently joined DACHSER and will report in the future to DACHSER's regional management based in Singapore. Assisted by the co-owner of the JV, Hasmijati Koto, a shipping professional with a solid, long-standing reputation in the country, the new firm is off to a good start, thanks to valuable expertise, contacts, and know-how.

With over 240 million inhabitants, Indonesia is one of the largest markets in Southeast Asia, boasting a large shipping volume to Singapore, South Korea, Japan, and the US.
