Panalpina personnel in North America are currently undergoing training to use DSV Air & Sea’s transport management system as the two companies continue their integration.

Ultimately, the goal is to transfer all customers and volumes from Panalpina’s to DSV’s system, and to have all freight forwarders within Air & Sea operating from the same system.

Offices in Chicago, Detroit, Minneapolis and St Louis were first in line and have undergone on-the-job training to “learn the ins and outs of Air & Sea’s transport management system”.

“On October 15, the system went live at these locations, and we’re now fully up and running,” DSV Panalpina said.

Niels Larsen, president Air & Sea USA, is happy with the integration so far.  “I don’t know how many miles I have flown the past four months to meet and greet a good 1,500-2,000 Panalpina staff in North America,” he said. “I can honestly say that I have met a ton of great and excited Panalpina talents. I’m very excited about our joint future.”

To get an indication of how the integration is progressing within Air & Sea, the comapny has compiled a few testimonials from former Panalpina employees.
