  • “The rebranding makes the full integration of Johnston Logistics into the Dachser network visible to the outside world."
  • As of September 2019, Johnston Logistics Ltd. will become Dachser Ireland Ltd.
  • "Both sides contribute expertise that will ensure further growth—in both our domestic and our export business."

Global logistics provider, Dachser, continues strong in extending its international footprint, as the company confirmed the acquisition and re-branding of Ireland-based Johnston Logistics Ltd. earlier this month. As of September 2019, Johnston Logistics Ltd. will become Dachser Ireland Ltd., confirming complete integration with Dachser.

“The rebranding makes the full integration of Johnston Logistics into the Dachser network visible to the outside world. At the same time, the connection to all our systems ensures that the Irish country organization is secure and stable for the future,” explains Dachser CEO Bernhard Simon.

The full integration follows a robust 12-year partnership between Dachser and Johnston, with Dachser taking over a majority of the company’s stake in 2017. Dachser’s primary warehouse and transport management IT systems -DOMINO and MIKADO, were integrated earlier this year in addition to Dachser’s truck presence in Ireland.

“With the integration into the Dachser network, we have found a good, sustainable path for future developments. Both family businesses stand for the same values. And both sides contribute expertise that will ensure further growth—in both our domestic and our export business,” concluded Albert Johnston, Managing Director of Johnston Logistics.

Founded in 1979, Johnston Logistics boasts expertise in dangerous goods transportation and will focus efforts specifically for groupage and to serve customers in chemical, pharmaceutical, hardware, plastics and packaging industries. Johnston reported 346,000 shipments and 120 daily departures during 2018.

“The integration of an experienced and capable partner such as Johnston Logistics is absolutely in line with one of Dachser’s main interests: we want our customers in Ireland to get the maximum benefit from uniform services and quality standards, fixed transit times, and the closely integrated network of Dachser branches throughout Europe,” added  Michael Schilling, COO Road Logistics at Dachser.
