DACHSER India expands LCL services

DACHSER India established two new direct LCL services between India and Germany, offering end-to-end logistics services including hinterland transport between India and Europe.

Weekly consolidation boxes connect Delhi and Bangalore with Hamburg, Germany. While turnaround of goods is reduced, process management is optimized to quicken the supply chain. Upon arrival in Germany, customers gain direct access to all destinations in Europe via DACHSER’s interlocked logistics networks.

The most suitable modal mix from northern India to Europe

From India’s north, articles like garments or leather products reach their final destination in Europe utilizing DACHSER LCL services. Railway has become a preferred transport mode for hinterland transport for its cost effectiveness and safety compared with long distance road transport.

The DACHSER India team at the Gurugram branch arranges pick-up and transport to the sea port. Sea freight containers get stuffed every Wednesday at the Inland Container Depot (ICD) in Tughlakabad, New Delhi. After having completed customs clearance directly at the depot, containers are transported to Mundra port in Gujarat by rail where they are immediately loaded onto ships.

Connecting India’s high-tech center Bangalore

The Indian automotive and auto-components industry has experienced healthy growth over last few years. Bangalore with a lot of engineering and automotive organizations in its vicinity becomes one of the major export centers for engineering goods. Offering weekly LCL containers, DACHSER India expands its service offering at this hot spot.

Closing of the boxes happens every Thursday in 20 or 40 ft. containers, depending on the amount of cargo transported from Bangalore to Chennai port. The customs cleared goods arrive at Chennai port by road from where ships are leaving India every Monday. Transit time to Germany from Delhi and Bangalore varies between 22 to 32 days.

Feel free to reach out to your DACHSER representative for more information on the new services.
