Dachser Strengthens Its Overland Transport Network in Northern Europe

KEMPTEN, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- Dachser enters the Finnish overland transport market on June 1, 2014 and has established the joint venture Dachser Finland Oy for this purpose. ACE Logistics Group -- a network partner headquartered in Tallinn (Estonia) with whom Dachser has already collaborated for over fifteen years in the Baltic nations -- holds a fifty percent equity interest in the JV.

Situated in Vantaa, near Helsinki, the new Dachser location holds 1,200 square meters of transit and warehouse space and is connected via the daily departures to Dachser's European overland network. Goods from Finland reach the whole of Europe within clearly defined timeframes via the Eurohubs in Bratislava and Überherrn and through the central platform in Bad Salzuflen, Germany. This also applies to shipments headed to Finland in the opposite direction. Oy Waco Finland, the air and sea freight shipping partner that is domiciled in the same location in Vantaa, additionally takes care of the connection to the intercontinental markets. Dachser Air & Sea Logistics acquired the majority shareholding in this joint venture in 2013.

"Continuous IT systems, uniform performance and quality standards, fixed timeframes and a tightly meshed network of branches throughout all of Europe -- these are the primary benefits of a direct connection to the Dachser network. Customers in Finland can take advantage of them effective immediately," sums up Michael Schilling, COO Road Logistics at Dachser. "At the same time, this step means we are strengthening and consolidating our overland transport network in Northern Europe."

"The Vantaa location is ideally positioned, thanks to its proximity to the Finnish export and import customers," explains Tuomas Leimio, Managing Director Dachser Finland Oy. "Ultimately, 85 percent of the Finnish overland transport market transpires in the triangle formed by the cities of Helsinki, Turku, and Tampere. We see excellent growth prospects in the Finnish market backed by the global Dachser network and its highly-developed processes and IT systems."

In addition, Dachser has a presence in Northern Europe through its own country organizations in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, and employs about 500 individuals in the region. The Baltic states -- Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania -- will be serviced through ACE Logistics Group, Dachser´s network partner with decades of experience.
