Dachser starts up own company in Brazil
08 / 06 / 2009
DACHSER and Logimasters are reorganising their businesses in Brazil following the termination of their joint venture on March 31, 2009.
Dachser is taking over all international business, which is to be consolidated in the newly founded Dachser Brasil Logística headquartered in Indaiatuba. From there, it will manage its air and sea freight business, including existing partner connections. It will also acquire 100 per cent of the shares in Logiprojects and so be able to coordinate international special and project business to and from Brazil.
Dachser Brasil is to be managed by Richard Frank Schües.
“With this step, we are reinforcing our global air and sea freight network and consolidating our position in the Brazilian growth market,” said Thomas Reuter, managing director air and sea logistics at Dachser. “This also paves the way for the important pending integration of our logistics systems.”
In 2008 Dachser generated total sales of €3.6 billion (US$5 billion). Over 18,000 staff working in 305 profit centres worldwide handled 43.3 million consignments weighing a total of 29.1 million tonnes.
