Dacsher USA Chalks Up Major U.S. Growth in 2014
Dachser Transport of America Inc. increased its revenue last year by 16 percent to $192 million and saw significant gains in its ocean and air freight tonnage, both of which grew by 7.3 percent and 23 percent, respectively.
According to Dachser USA President and CEO, Frank Guenzerodt, the U.S. “is vitally important for the entire organization and therefore the focus remains on expanding the U.S. subsidiary over the next few years.”
The company, he said, “has realized substantial growth during the last decade, both in its global air and sea logistics and its European overland networks.”
By interconnecting them closely, the company “is able to cover complex global supply chains in a one-stop-shop approach,” said Guenzerodt, adding that the goal for Dachser is to have 25 locations in the U.S. by 2018.
“Our solution is particularly attractive for multinational companies, which is why we need to continue to grow aggressively in the US market,” he said.
The Atlanta-based U.S. subsidiary of German-headquartered Dascher SE currently maintains 14 locations across the country. In 2014, the logistics provider opened new facilities in St. Louis, Missouri, and Memphis, Tennessee.
In addition, it moved into larger facilities in Chicago and Atlanta “to support growing customer demand in the Midwest and Southeast.”
