DACHSER Food Logistics and Heidelmann extend partnership
Collaboration at a regional and European level
DACHSER has been collaborating with German logistics company Heidelmann in the field of food logistics for 25 years. Their partnership at the European level has now been extended for the long term.
Headquartered in Schwalmstadt in the German state of Hesse, Heidelmann is the longest-standing partner of DACHSER Food Logistics. Within the Dachser network, Heidelmann has been responsible for temperature-controlled deliveries and supporting distribution and warehouse customers in northern Hesse since 1995. In December 2020, DACHSER and Heidelmann extended their cooperation agreement for the long term.
Our companies can look back at a successful partnership characterized by continuity, mutual reliance, and a constructive, trusted, and friendly working relationship. We look forward to our continued collaboration over the coming years, which I’m sure will be just as fruitful.Alfred Miller, Managing Director of DACHSER Food Logistics
Just like DACHSER, Heidelmann is a founding member of the European Food Network, an association of leading European food logistics providers. Using the temperature-controlled transport network, customers of both these family-owned companies can distribute their food products as part of very frequent and fast groupage shipments with set delivery times across 34 European countries.
At its headquarters in Schwalmstadt, Heidelmann is currently building a new logistics facility, which will open in June this year. “The new building is also an investment in further joint growth,” says Ute Bischoff, Managing Partner at Heidelmann. “Our partnership with DACHSER and our active involvement in the European Food Network have always yielded a vast array of opportunities for us and our customers. Over the past 25 years, the close relationship and communication we’ve had with DACHSER have become part of our corporate culture.”
