DACHSER Continues to Expand in Asia

International logistics provider DACHSER continues to expand its Asia operations by acquiring the remaining shares of DACHSER India from AFL Pvt. Ltd. This acquisition makes DACHSER the sole shareholder of the company’s ventures in India and Thailand, and a majority shareholder of the joint venture in Bangladesh.  

The collaboration between DACHSER and AFL Pvt. Ltd., one of the leading Indian logistics companies, began in 1996. In 2007, the companies began developing regional markets in India through a joint venture and established additional organizations in Bangladesh and Thailand. In 2011, the company was renamed DACHSER India. 

In August, DACHSER acquired all of the India and Thailand shares owned by Indglobal, an affiliated company of AFL, and a majority of its shares in Bangladesh. 

“This was an important step toward strengthening our intercontinental network and being able to work even more closely with our customers in these promising growth markets,” said Thomas Reuter, COO Air & Sea Logistics at DACHSER. 

DACHSER‘s main India office is headquartered in Mumbai, and the company maintains a strong presence with approximately 500 employees in 27 locations across India. Its core business includes air and sea freight services as well as contract logistics. DACHSER also has two locations in Bangladesh and an office in Bangkok, Thailand. 

In recent years, DACHSER has made huge investments in the Asia Pacific region, establishing subsidiaries in Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, and Malaysia and has expanded its activities in Greater China and Korea.
