1. How do you feel after the first months in your new role?

Coming from the aviation and courier services industry, I originally took a deep dive into logistics services to identify challenges, update our strategies and review key performance indicators as we look ahead to the future. Overall, the market conditions in Taiwan are challenging, but I’m nothing but optimistic about the growth potential of DACHSER Taiwan.

2. What do these market conditions mean for your team?

For the past two decades, Taiwanese companies have been moving production lines abroad, especially to China and, most recently, to South East Asia. This has decreased local manufacturing while boosting cross-border production. As a result, DACHSER Taiwan is fully capitalizing on its dense Intra-Asia network, which is closely interlocked with DACHSER branches worldwide. I’m convinced that the new cluster will further strengthen our network-driven approach, which is an effective element of the DACHSER philosophy.

3. What else do you have planned for DACHSER Taiwan?

We are gradually acquiring more market share by working with industries that require a global network like ours. Look at the automotive industry, for example, which needs logistics operators with an extensive range of integrated services. At the same time, DACHSER offers a dedicated control tower to manage, control and optimize all parties involved in global supply chains.

My strong team is the backbone of DACHSER Taiwan; their dedication enables us to fulfill complex logistics requirements. To further strengthen our team, we are continuously developing our training catalogue — not only for new colleagues, but also for existing team members. We will also introduce the DACHSER Asia Pacific Management Trainee program, which offers excellent opportunities for ambitious young people who are passionate about logistics. Logistics has been a major pillar for economic growth around the world, and we hope to welcome more young minds to the exciting industry.
