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.
Dachser, a family-owned company headquartered in Kempten, Germany, is one of the leading logistics providers in Europe. Dachser provides comprehensive transport logistics, warehousing, and customer-specific services in three business fields: Dachser European Logistics, Dachser Food Logistics, and Dachser Air & Sea Logistics. Comprehensive and multi-disciplinary services, such as contract logistics, consulting and advisory services, and industry-specific solutions round out the company's offerings. A seamless transport network -- both in Europe and overseas -- and information technology that is fully integrated into all its systems provide intelligent logistics solutions worldwide.
With a staff of 25,000 employees at 471 locations all over the globe, in 2013, Dachser generated revenue of nearly EUR 5 billion and handled 70 million shipments.

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered.

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
