DACHSER Far East Ltd. is an extremely successful organisation with over 700 staff members in 19 offices in Far East today.   

Originally, the company was a joint venture with the Italian Zust Ambrosetti. In March 2003, Dachser took full control of the joint venture and Podestá, who was Managing Director at Zust Ambrosetti Far East Ltd., remained in charge of the company, ensuring a smooth transition, starting with the change of name to DACHSER Far East Ltd. in June 2003.

Podestá had established Zust Ambrosetti’s Kuala Lumpur operation in Malaysia in 1996.

Born in Chiavari, Italy, in 1962, Podestá started his career in the logistics field in Valencia, Spain, joining Contship Container Lines, a company he worked for from 1987 to 1995.

During that period, Podestá held a variety of positions in Europe, as well as in Asia – in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Hong Kong – gaining a great deal of insight into the business practices in Asia. 

In 1994 he held the position of an owner’s representative at Contship Container Lines in Hong Kong, until he joined Zust Ambrosetti and moved to Malaysia.
