South Africa: Jonen Freight becomes DACHSER

“The new name reflects the integration of the company into the DACHSER network, through which we link South Africa with the world’s major economic centres,” says Thomas Reuter, managing director of DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics. South Africa is a substantial market and an important node in this network.

The joint venture draws a positive balance after the first operating year. “Revenue has grown by over ten percent,” says Detlev Duve, managing director of DACHSER South Africa and son of Jonen’s founder. The company has been active in South Africa for over 30 years. “We currently employ a staff of 157, which is 35 more than a year ago,” says German-born Duve.

DACHSER South Africa has branch offices in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. As well as air and sea freight services, the logistics provider offers its customers a wide range of supplementary services such as customs clearance, warehousing and distribution.
