  • DACHSER pursues sustainable growth

    Dachser posted substantial growth once again in 2018. The logistics provider increased its consolidated net revenue by 5.5 percent to EUR 5.57 billion. As they did last year, shipment numbers increased, rising by 2.5 percent to 83.7 million; tonnage rose 3.0 percent to 41.3 million metric tons. With 30,609 employees in total, up 1,511 from the preceding year, Dachser’s workforce reached a record high.
    In the Benelux, the logistics service provider increased the unconsolidated gross revenue by 9.9 percent to 305.8 million euros. Shipment numbers increased by 5.0 percent to 3.0 million; tonnage increased to 1.3 million tons. The 838 logistics professionals in the Benelux power the network.

    Developments in Belgium
    Also in Belgium the growth trend that was visible the past few years has continued. The unconsolidated gross revenue increased by 11.7 percent to 115 million euros, the tonnage to 0.5 million tons and the number of shipments to 1.2 million. This is partly due to the favorable economic conditions, but the continuously growing expansion of the European network also plays a role. In 2018, Dachser’s workforce in Belgium consisted of 322 employees. This has achieved a growth of 8 percent compared to 2017.

    In Belgium, Dachser is very active in the field of education and guiding young people. “In the past few years, we have invested heavily in staff, training and expansion of our branches and logistics network”, says Aat van der Meer, Managing Director of Dachser Benelux. “We offer a range of internship and apprenticeship opportunities, at every level and in almost every department in collaboration with different schools and agencies. In addition, Dachser is one of the first logistics service providers that started dual learning in 2018”.

  • DACHSER delivers with electrically supported cargo bikes

    Each pedelec offers a euro pallet’s worth of space up to 1.4 meters in height and can carry up to 250 kilograms. Even if size and weight issues mean that the pedelec cannot handle some packages, Dachser is addressing the trend towards smaller and smaller shipment sizes driven by shorter ordering cycles, which are themselves the result of space shortages in city centers.

    Karlsruhe is currently the only major city in the German state of Baden-Württemberg that has not exceeded any pollution limits and is thus not considering any bans on diesel vehicles. “Nevertheless, DACHSER Karlsruhe is opting to make deliveries with electrically supported cargo bikes to help improve air quality, particularly in the city center,” explains Bernd Großmann, General Manager of DACHSER Karlsruhe. He continues: “This means of transport represents an innovative and above all eco-friendly way to make deliveries.” In addition, the pedelec makes it possible to get around traffic jams and reach places motorized vehicles can’t enter.

    The downtown warehouse (microhub) will be located on the courier’s premises. Further plans include expanding the fleet with other bicycles that can handle larger shipments or even volumes equal to two pallets.
    DACHSER has already rolled out cargo bikes in various German cities. There are also plans to use the cargo bikes in the Benelux in due course. The DACHSER City Distribution innovation project is putting together a toolbox of solutions for sustainable and innovative delivery in light of increasing traffic challenges. Depending on its particular requirements, a DACHSER branch can draw on various actions from the toolbox to create a tailored solution for its own delivery area.

    The cargo bike will be shown at the DACHSER booth 1.099 at the Transport & Logistics Antwerp 2019.
