Bernhard Simon, head of the DACHSER management board, points out that the increase in jobs is spread across skilled specialists and executives, as well as a number of operational positions. Simon says: “While everyone is talking these days about the shortage of skilled specialists and executives, we are finding it increasingly difficult to fill vacant operational positions.” Simon anticipates that this could become a problem in future.
DACHSER is well known in the industry for offering systematic initial and advanced training, also in the lower collectively agreed wage brackets. In logistics there is also a shortage of truck drivers. The company intends to significantly intensify its driver training and recruiting initiatives in the coming year.

For 2012, DACHSER is planning to create new jobs despite the weakening economic environment. Simon says: “The mission to recruit and retain qualified people is part of our long-term strategic orientation – even when the going gets tough.”

In 2010, the internationally operating logistics provider generated total revenue of EUR 3.8 billion. At 310 profit centres worldwide DACHSER handled 46.2 million consignments weighing a total of 35.5 million tonnes.
