DACHSER now at 100 percent in Chile
In April, DACHSER acquired all the shares in its Chilean subsidiary. The logistics provider had entered the Chilean market in 2009 as part of a joint venture.
“Chile is one of the most stable countries and strongest economies in South America, and plays a key role in intra-American trade along the Pacific coast,” explains Guido Gries, Managing Director DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics Americas. “We want to expand our presence there and closely integrate DACHSER Chile into our region and our global logistics network.”
Chile also has close economic and trade ties to Argentina, Brazil, Asia, Oceania, and Europe. Its main exports include copper, fish, fruit, paper, wine, and minerals.
Frank Habermann is now the head of DACHSER Chile S.A. The managing director, who joined DACHSER Chile in 2013 to lead the sales division for the country organization, has been working in the logistics industry for 27 years.
“We offer our customers the full range of services: air and sea transport with professional customs clearance; warehousing and value-added services; and heavy and special transports, such as for the mining industry, which is a huge part of Chile’s economy,” Habermann says.
DACHSER Chile S.A. currently has 22 employees at its location in the capital city of Santiago and generates some EUR 6.3 million in revenue each year.
