Following the successful launch of its Mexico-based automotive competence center, global logistics provider Dachser Logistics announced the opening of its Atlanta-based automotive competence center to support efforts in addressing complex logistics within the automotive market. The customer-focused initiative furthers the company’s goal to implement logistics solutions while expanding its presence specifically in auto logistics.
“Dachser is committed to providing superior service and customized solutions to our automotive business, which requires highly trained professionals who understand the nuances of transporting automobiles and their respective parts,” said Vincent Touya, Managing Director Dachser USA. “In the U.S specifically, our customers are responding very well to the hands-on approach of our automotive competence team. We continue to evolve and grow this program to ensure it consistently meets our customers’ needs and responds to the challenges of the marketplace.”
Additional initiatives in place to cater to automotive logistics needs include the opening of Dachser’s Detroit location last August, placing the company’s presence in one of the largest automotive regions in the country.
“The move into Detroit reflects our dedication to meeting the needs of our customers, who require we move closer to their business. Being in Detroit not only provides a closer proximity to our customers, it also ensures that we understand the culture—the heart and soul—of the automotive community, which of course, helps us better anticipate our customers’ needs and provide customized, viable solutions,” said Touya.
Dachser is no stranger to global automotive logistics needs, however. On a global scale, Dachser’s Germany location serves Volvo Cars’ customers as it addresses complex needs with the company’s spare parts business. Dachser delivers Volvo’s spare parts through a shuttle service launched specifically for Volvo, delivering spare parts to Volvo’s warehouses throughout the region and Volvo’s Torslanda, Sweden location.
“We provide Volvo Cars with a solution that is tailored to their logistics needs,” says René Sidor, Managing Director of DACHSER Nordic A/S. “By customizing our approach, Volvo gets a unified logistics solution.”
