“We are honored to accept this award and be part of this year’s Gala.” says Frank Guenzerodt, President & CEO of DACHSER USA. “We have made considerable enhancements to our US network over the past years and our main focus is to continue to expand in the US in order to support our multinational customer base.” The company prides itself on maintaining a family owned company culture, offering flexible logistics solutions and dedicated customer service

During the award application process, companies are evaluated on their overall measureable contributions to the German American business community through job creation as well as their company values, goals for the future and commitment to excellence.

“By linking all major German and European cities to the USA we are able to integrate the supply chain process for German companies who are looking for a partner so they can successfully launch in the US.” says Guenzerodt. DACHSER’s logistical solutions are based on integrating the entire supply chain process. Creating the right mix of standardized processes and customized services is essential to providing customers a solution that is both highly sophisticated and economical. “DACHSER has realized substantial growth during the last decade, both in its global Air & Sea Logistics and its European Logistics overland networks. By interconnecting them closely, DACHSER is able to cover complex global supply chains in a one-stop-shop approach”, Guenzerodt continues.

In the Midwest, DACHSER USA’s network has been continually growing to support increasing customer demand, with the opening of the St. Louis office and the expansion of the Chicago office last year and more openings planned over the next years. The Chicago facility now serves as state of the art hub giving DACHSER the ability to reach almost 80% of all customers in the United States within two days. The warehousing facility provides cross-docking, increased storage space, warehouse distribution, and buildup and breakdown of air and ocean containers.

This is the second time DACHSER was honored by the GACC. Previously named the MERLIN Awards, DACHSER was named the “Best Service Provider” in 2010. The MERLIN award was presented annually, but limited to businesses located in the Midwest. 2015 is the first year where the GACC considered applicants from across the nation.
