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.

Fundamental measures to cope with the current COVID-19 situation

After numerous countries have imposed restrictions on public life and some have closed their borders (currently for passenger transport), we are confronted with a number of challenges as a result of the current corona situation. Due to accompanying restrictions to contain the spread of the virus, DACHSER is faced with delivery restrictions in regions or recipient groups (e.g.: catering and retail trade with the exception of essential goods). We are therefore dependent on the support of our customers.

We ask our customers only to hand over consignments for transport where it can be guaranteed that the goods will be accepted by the recipient. If we are unable to deliver consignments due to restrictions in the destination area or closure of a business, we will return consignments already accepted for a fee so that they can be returned to the sender's care as quickly as possible.  Further shipments to these areas or to final recipients will then no longer be accepted. This serves to avoid idle times and thus damage risks in the interest of all.

Of course we also offer individual possibilities of interim storage in contract logistics if required. For the reservation of storage capacities we ask our customers to contact us. We regret the inconvenience this may cause, but we consider it our duty to point out possible scenarios.

Our teams worldwide will stay in contact with our customers. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with your contact at the relevant DACHSER branch to discuss your particular situation and make further arrangements for your freight shipments.

All news on the current situation can be found on our respective DACHSER country websites.

DACHSER adding new route for its charter services to cover America

Coronavirus pandemic: Impact on operational processing in the USA

As can already be seen from various press releases, the US authorities have enforced a ban with effect from 13 March 2020, 23:59 h, which prevents all entries from Europe into the United States, in addition to the already existing entry ban for visitors from several Asian countries.

This leads to a large number of flight cancellations on routes between Europe and the United States. However, the affected passenger routes also represent a significant portion of the available cargo capacity and therefore there is a massive impact on available cargo space and freight rates.

Our team of experts continues to work hard on alternative options and routes that will allow us to carry urgent cargo and we are committed to providing our customers with priority access to available capacity. As with the successful implementation of our charter program between China and Germany, we are now exploring similar solutions for transportation between Germany and the USA.

Our teams around the world will stay in touch with you, but please do not hesitate to get in touch with your contact at the respective DACHSER branch to discuss your particular situation and make further arrangements for your freight shipments.

COVID-19: updates on DACHSER’s operations in China and Korea

We would like to inform you about the latest update on the market situations and current status of DACHSER’s operations in China and South Korea.

China

All DACHSER branches in China are open except Wuhan. Starting from March 2, most branches are operating with full teams, but the operations are not resuming to full capacity, as the local market conditions are still very challenging with shortage of labor and traffic controls. Domestic trucking remains a major issue.

General status in China

Factories are slowly picking up with their productions. Compared with last week, more factories have resumed work, but production is not up to 100% normal, while some of the factories are either still closed or operating with skeleton staffing. Generally, all businesses are gradually resuming. In many locations, authorities only allow a limited number of staff to enter the premises to prevent workplace infection. Therefore, most of the enterprises are operating with skeleton staffing, and have part of their employees working from home, if applicable. Employees who returned from the Hubei province are required to stay in quarantine for 14 days before returning to workplace. This quarantine restriction also applies to truck drivers.

DACHSER branches in China

  • All DACHSER branches except Wuhan are open and resumed business. Wuhan is closed until further notice.
  • A few DACHSER branches are operating with skeleton staffing due to local authorities’ preventive measures.
  • Employees, if not in the office, are working from home to keep the operations ongoing.
  • There are delays in some processes, as most of the units in the supply chain within China are not functioning in full capacity.

Transport logistics in China

While we are trying our best to keep your supply chain as smooth as possible, please consider that other units in the supply chain did not resume full capacity yet. Carriers and terminals are gradually resuming operations with skeleton staff. Delays and other operational issues are expected.

Road:

  • Lack of truckers is currently the major issue in China.
  • Inter-cities and inter-provinces trucking are especially challenging due to heavy regulations on road, making road journeys heavily delayed.

  • Westbound: Cargo volume is recovering as more factories are resuming production; backlog is expected once the factories are fully operative, leading to shortage of truckers and space.
  • Eastbound: Intense space shortage
  • Ocean terminals are operating, except Wuhan.

South Korea

Overall, the factories are open and operating normally except in Daegu where some factories are closed because their staff was infected with the virus. Business are mostly not affected, some enterprises including some of the carriers are having special working arrangement such as implementing flexible working hours or allowing staff to work from home.

DACHSER branches in South Korea

All DACHSER branches in Korea are currently open. To protect the safety of our staff, employees are asked to work from home whenever applicable. The operations teams are working on shift in the office at flexible hours to keep our service delays to minimal.

Transport logistics in South Korea

Air:

  • Intra-Asian flag carriers have suspended passenger flights to and from South Korea. Therefore more than 50% of the capacity is reduced.
