Atlanta, GA – International logistics provider Dacsher has expanded its footprint in Korea and the US Midwest.
The company has acquired the remaining 50 percent of MGI & Dachser to create Dachser Korea Inc. with headquarters in the Korean capital of Seoul.
Dascher has maintained a presence in South Korea since 2006 and became the sole shareholder of the joint venture in December 2013.
The new company will also conduct sea freight business in Busan and air freight handling in the company’s most important hub, Incheon. In addition, the logistics provider offers professional consolidation services specifically for air freight pallets at the Dachser warehouse facility on the airport grounds.
The joint venture, MGI & Dachser, has established a strong presence in the Korean market. In the future, Dachser Korea, Inc. will place particular focus on expanding sea freight activities in Busan.
At the same time, Dachser Transport of America Inc. announced the opening of a new office in St. Louis, Missouri, to support the company’s continued expansion in the Midwest.
The new office is conveniently located in the St. Louis Customs Building across from Lambert International Airport. It directly supports customers in southern Illinois, Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska, and will work in tandem with Dachser’s recently opened new office and warehouse in Chicago.
“The Midwest has become one of Dachser’s biggest growth markets in the US, and we’re focused on enhancing our facilities within the region to continue to best meet the needs of our customers,” said Frank Guenzerodt, president and CEO of Dachser USA. “This focused expansion in the Midwest also benefits other regions in the US, and expands our overall global footprint.”
The combined capability of the newly opened office in St. Louis and warehousing facility in Chicago means the majority of the Midwest is able to be serviced with next day deliveries with over 80 percent of the US population is reachable via trucking transit within two days, the company said.
In addition, the new warehouse integrates with Dachser’s globally-recognized Mikado software system.
