This is the first time DACHSER South Africa has exhibited at Electra Mining Africa at this scale. The DACHSER stand has been crafted in Germany and will offer an interactive and engaging demonstration of DACHSER’s global abilities. “At DACHSER, we strive to measurably increase the added value - and thereby the competitive advantage - for our customers with integrated, innovative and industry-wide exceptional transport solutions. Our ability to think and act from the corporate perspective of the customer makes our company a valuable partner,” says Managing Director of DACHSER South Africa, Detlev Duve.

The company offers mining companies an unrivalled logistics service. “We understand that the needs of mining companies are complex and unique,” says Duve. “They are characterised by the need to transport to remote locations with challenging infrastructure, the need to manage complex multi-modal projects and high risks that require specialised insurance. Mining companies can reduce logistics costs considerably through partnering with a specialised logistics company that can provide targeted solutions. We are well equipped to deal with the complexities of logistics for mining, industrial, engineering and related industries, from moving major capital equipment to raw materials. We look forward to increasing our client base in these industries.”

Duve says that key factors differentiating local logistics providers include: the ability to easily track and trace consignments and the frequency with which shipments reach the consignee within the scheduled or expected time, competitive pricing and the efficiency of the customs clearance process.

DACHSER further strives to be cost effective and has extensive experience in Africa. Duve says, “While transport costs are rising, DACHSER can remain competitively priced as we have an efficient and established domestic and international network. We maintain an excellent record of on-time delivery and use our integrated eLogistics tools to ensure accurate tracking. Infrastructure quality is challenging in South Africa, but we have the most viable solutions in place to counteract these challenges,” says Duve.

With offices in Johannesburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town locally and a comprehensive international network, DACHSER South Africa brings both local expertise and global coverage to address logistics needs. As well as air and sea freight services, the logistics provider offers its customers across different sectors a wide range of supplementary services such as customs clearance, warehousing and distribution.

Dachser will be at Electra Mining Africa 2014 from September 15 – 19 at the Expo Centre, NASREC, Johannesburg at Hall 5, Stand E 31.
