DACHSER focuses on more loading space

Since April 2021, DACHSER has opted exclusively for so-called ‘mega trailers’ when purchasing new semi-trailers in Germany. Because of their more generous cargo space dimensions - with otherwise the same length and width - the mega trailers achieve better fuel economy than standard semi-trailers, especially over long distances. Full conversion of the German fleet is scheduled to be completed by 2027, with some 680 new mega trailers in total. In the next few years, DACHSER will also start replacing its fleets in the 24 other European countries where it is represented through its European Logistics business line.

To mark the occasion: update of our Brexit checklist

The EU withdrawal of the United Kingdom was completed on 31.01.2020. Currently we are in a transition phase which ends on 31.12.2020. A further extension of this transitional phase should have been agreed until 01.07.2020 and is therefore no longer possible. Thus, the United Kingdom will no longer be part of the internal market and the customs union as of 01.01.2021. If no agreement is reached between the UK and the EU in the remaining time of the transition phase, trade would in future fall under the rules of the World Trade Organization. 

We at DACHSER cannot influence the political situation in the UK, but we can prepare you in the best possible way for regulated customs procedures. We have therefore adapted and updated our Brexit checklist to the current circumstances. You can download it here free of charge.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with your responsible contact person at the respective DACHSER branch.

Short update on the general situation in the transport sector

In the second half of the year, the corona pandemic is still the predominant topic in the media. While at the beginning of the pandemic new findings on Covid-19 were being announced almost daily and many updates were also published by DACHSER on loading restrictions in Europe as well as in America and APAC, something like a "new normality" has now returned. 

At the moment, there are no longer any universal country or customer restrictions. We would therefore like to ask our customers to clarify individual restrictions such as closures, changed opening hours etc. with the recipients of the goods themselves. We are closely monitoring the further course of the corona pandemic and will keep you informed immediately of any developments. Should new loading restrictions be imposed, these will be published again via our website. 

If you have any questions on this subject, please contact your local contact person at the respective DACHSER branch.

End of the Brexit transition phase: What next?

The deadline for an extension of the Brexit negotiations and thus a longer transitional phase has expired. This has increased the pressure to reach an agreement on future relations between Britain and the EU by the end of the year.

Please get in touch with your local DACHSER contact if you have any questions about this. Our experts can help you in any case.

Successful implementation of the Global Air Freight Security Network of DACHSER

The issue of security is of paramount importance when it comes to the worldwide transport of your air freight. To enable DACHSER to support its customers even better in maintaining a secure supply chain, the "Global Air Freight Security Network" project was launched in 2020 by the Air Freight Security Team at DACHSER and has now been successfully implemented.

The goal of the Global Air Freight Security Network is to strengthen the global network of DACHSER. The introduction of a worldwide organization with local contacts will result in more efficient communication between the Air & Sea Logistics locations, enabling a faster reactivity to new regulations and innovations. In addition, a faster implementation of standardized processes of DACHSER worldwide will be enabled.

The implementation of the project will further reduce the risk in the area of air freight security to ensure transportation through strictest compliance with all regulations.

If you have any questions, please contact your local DACHSER representative.

Heavy rainfall in China

The heavy rainfall in the Chinese province of Henan over the past few days has led to widespread flooding and the cancellation of many regional train and road connections. These restrictions are causing delays along the supply chain of DACHSER Rail Services.

Due to the flooding, around 100,000 people have been evacuated and many dams and reservoirs have risen to warning levels. With more rain expected in the coming days, it is still unclear by when the situation in the flooded areas will calm down.

If you have any questions regarding your supply chain, please contact your local contact at the respective DACHSER branch.

DACHSER builds on its growth driver

Even as the global economy becomes increasingly weaker, DACHSER was able to continue growing in 2019. The logistics provider increased its consolidated net revenue by a solid 1.6 percent to EUR 5.66 billion. Driving this growth was again the Road Logistics business field, net revenue rose by 2.9 percent to EUR 4.60 billion. In contrast, the Air & Sea Logistics business field saw a decline of 4.1 percent, mainly attributable to weaker demand for air freight services for automotive customers.
