Atlanta, GA (October 31, 2016) - In order to provide quickly growing industries in Vietnam with logistics services for their exports, Dachser has now opened a branch office in Hanoi to support its location in Ho Chi Minh City.
"The expansion of Dachser Asia Pacific is vital for our customers in the USA as a substantial amount of cargo is imported from these areas," said Frank Guenzerodt, President & CEO of Dachser USA. "The local Asian expertise and the close proximity to the suppliers at origin in Asia ensure an expertly managed supply chain solution."
"Many manufacturers, particularly those in the textile, shoe, and electronics industries, have established production facilities in northern Vietnam. The location of our office in Hanoi will allow us to work in closer proximity to our customers in this area," says Michael Deisemann, Managing Director Air & Sea Logistics Vietnam. The branch office will provide air and sea freight (FCL and LCL) to Europe, Central Asia, and the US and will also offer warehousing and value-added services if needed.
Dachser is moving to a new office in Tsuen Wan in the New Territories area of Hong Kong. Air freight, sea freight, and logistics management will all have offices under one roof. The Dachser transit warehouse in Tsuen Wan will continue to be used for air freight, while the branch office in Tsing Yi will handle contract logistics.
"It is increasingly important for Dachser to house a logistics center in Asia. Hong Kong is an attractive location with regard to infrastructure and qualified staff," says Nils Holder, Managing Director Air & Sea Logistics Hong Kong.
In India, Dachser has moved to a new regional office in the thriving business area of Mumbai, to be closer to its brand named customers and enable staff from different departments to communicate more effectively. The office, designed with an open floor plan, is located in Sakinaka, a leading commercial district in the city with easy access to public transportation. In another development Dachser has incorporated its air, ocean, customs and operations staff under one roof in a new operational office in Mumbai. In total 100 employees will work in the new office which is close to the international airport.
"India has long been a very strong market for Dachser," said Guenzerodt. "The extensive and increasing coverage assists USA importers and exporters with the intricacies of Indian transportation and provides seamless logistics for USA customers."
