Ahead with foresight

Logistics - this means accepting and mastering challenges again and again. Especially when things get difficult. That is why our team at DACHSER is approaching 2024 with great confidence, even though we are still confronted with volatile markets and rising costs. Thoughts by CEO Burkhard Eling.

Burkhard Eling, CEO DACHSER

The cautious forecasts of economic researchers - the IMF is currently only predicting slow growth of 3.1 percent in the global economy - suggest that global trade will not really get going this year either.

This year, we will focus our efforts on both our operating business and our strategic focus programs: these include expanding and connecting our worldwide networks and making them even more efficient through digitalization, climate protection and personnel development. Just some of the highlights of the current months: our new joint ventures DACHSER & Fercam Italia and DACHSER Japan are launching. Furthermore, we are finalizing the acquisition of Frigoscandia and start the integration process - as this is already successfully the case with Müller Fresh Food Logistics. We are also introducing our award-winning digital solution @ILO in several European branches. Last but not least, the DACHSER platform will also be fully available to our customers over the course of the year. This will bring together the services of the Air & Sea Logistics and Road Logistics business fields in a user-friendly, modern interface.

Moving forward with a clear mission

Overall, these are very good prospects! In addition, we will continue to work on the development of globally integrated transport and contract logistics solutions - summarized under the name Global Groupage. By seamlessly and efficiently connecting intercontinental LCL (less than container load) and airfreight transports with our high-performance European groupage network, we want to offer our customers global door-to-door solutions with a high level of transparency. We are convinced that with Global Groupage, we will fulfill our mission in the long term: to create the world's most intelligent combination and integration of logistics network competencies. This goal drives us and gives us motivation - far beyond short-term economic forecasts.
