Introducing DACHSER France
DACHSER France’s beginnings
DACHSER France was established in 1966 from an alliance between the DACHSER group and the French logistics company GRAVELEAU. This fusion gave DACHSER access to strategically important markets in Western Europe and North Africa. It was not until 2009 that Transports Graveleau was 100% sold and became DACHSER Intelligent Logistics.
