The damage-free transport of goods is essential for this and requires packaging that is suitable for stress and transport. In the following, we would like to give an overview of damage prevention through packaging.

"Supply chains face huge challenges"
On its 50th birthday, the swap body is more in demand than ever, because cargo space is currently in short supply. This applies not only to Europe, but especially to intercontinental trade.
The new DACHSER magazine is here!
As the year draws to a close, many of us use this time to look back and reflect, but also to prepare ourselves for the new challenges of the future. And that’s exactly what we’ve done in the latest issue of the DACHSER magazine.
DACHSER to supply Prague via pedelec
DACHSER is launching a pilot project in the Czech Republic to supply the Prague city centre with an electrically supported cargo bike. The newly built micro-hub "Depot.Bike" at the Florenc subway station is being used for this purpose.
For a sustainable society: More and more NGOs are taking action around the world
In the course of globalization, internationally networked non-governmental organizations or NGOs are playing an increasingly important role. DACHSER’s partnership with children’s aid organization terre des hommes demonstrates how a company can support an NGO over the long term.
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.

Brexit-Update: What you need to know
DACHSER would like to inform you about current developments regarding the UK's withdrawal from the EU, as we believe these may be of importance to your company.
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.
We would like to point out to our customers once again that the arrangements for customs powers of attorney on the part of our customers are particularly important for DACHSER's customs clearance.
Please get in touch with your local DACHSER contact if you have any questions about this. Our experts can help you in any case.
Discontinuation of the additional service “cash on delivery”
Digitalization and automation are key topics in online business as well as in logistics. As a result, a large number of online payment options have developed that are used in B2B and B2C business worldwide. The hygiene measures established as a result of the Corona crisis and the change in payment behaviour make it more difficult to use means of payment such as "cash on delivery". For DACHSER, the previous additional service "cash on delivery" is no longer necessary and will therefore discontinue this form of payment from 1 July 2020.

In the following you will find the current loading restrictions that apply to Europe (see download). Food transports are excluded from this. This document here will be updated on a regular basis.
