DACHSER Poland: increase in exports to the DIY chains

The export of goods from Poland to the European DIY chains handled by DACHSER in 2018 doubled (102% YoY) in terms of the number of shipments. During the same period, the international logistics operator delivered in total about 6 million shipments to over 18,000 markets from the construction and gardening sector on the entire continent.

“DACHSER as an international group has over 20 years of experience in servicing entrepreneurs who supply goods to European home and garden store chains. Our knowledge of this sector is exceptional, thanks to which more and more companies from the DIY industry entrust their logistics to us. Among them there is also a constantly growing group of Polish producers who successfully strengthen their position on foreign markets. This is clearly visible behind our western border, as well as in Slovakia and the Czech Republic, Austria or France”, comments Juliusz Pakuński, Business Development Manager DACHSER DIY-Logistics Poland.

The European DIY market is dominated by international retail chains. Germany, where the largest number of Polish shipments from the DIY industry goes, is also the largest national market in terms of home and garden network turnover on the continent. In 2017, almost 3500 local DIY stores sold products worth over EUR 38 billion*. DACHSER Poland provides a wide range of domestic products to foreign stores from the home and garden sector, including sanitary fittings, bathroom furniture, lighting products, ventilation and heating devices, electrical tools, as well as various garden equipment elements, such as - interestingly, much more popular abroad than in Poland - bird feeders.

Within the DACHSER DIY-Logistics corporate solution, DACHSER provides exporters with comprehensive logistics of deliveries to the home and garden store chains across Europe. The service includes not only the transport of shipments to the markets, but also a wide range of additional services in the store, organized in cooperation with merchandisers in particular countries, for example displaying products on shop shelves, their appropriate exhibition or carrying out promotional campaigns. DACHSER also handles returns and provides seasonal product storage services.
