Introducing DACHSER Mexico
Since 2006 DACHSER Mexico has developed into one of the leading players in the local logistics market for air and sea transportation.
At DACHSER, we combine many parts into a whole, since we connect people and systems in an exceptionally systematic way. In Mexico, 156 employees participate in a specific moment in the connection of the flow of goods, information and transport companies to each other. The cooperation of 5 branches guarantees the intelligent combination of logistics network competencies. Therefore, we can achieve the best possible domain of the processes in all commercial divisions and reach in depth to customers in Mexico with a superior operational solution in general.
The international company which carries out air and sea transportation services in México has acquired experience in the automotive, industrial and building industries locally, and sees Mexico as a market of the future.
In recent years, trade between Mexico and Germany has grown rapidly, to such an extent that Mexico is already the main economic partner of Germany in Latin America and the Caribbean.
With the recent signing of the modernization of the European Union-Mexico Free Trade Agreement (TLCUEM), the investment and commercial flows between Mexico and Europe will increase, and undoubtedly trade between Mexico and Germany will be one of the most strengthened.
According to the Ministry of Economy (SE), in Mexico there are 1,835 companies with German capital participation, and their productive activity is concentrated in key sectors such as: the automotive industry and auto parts; pharmaceutical, chemical and electrical-electronic, as well as the transport and logistics areas.
With the aim of continuing to promote the positive and constantly growing commercial relationship between both countries, Dachser has announced a new consolidated air and sea service with at least two weekly departure options that will connect Mexico with Germany and the north of Europe.
“Through this new offer of consolidated services, we currently offer almost twice as many options as our competitors. In addition, Dachser has the largest and strongest infrastructure in Europe, which allows us to provide a complete door to door package service”, pointed out Edgardo Hamon, Country Manager Dachser Mexico.
The new DACHSER magazine is here!
Renowned as they are for innovation and quality paired with tradition and craftsmanship, many products from Switzerland enjoy an excellent reputation worldwide. Among them Ricola cough drops, a classic sweet whose special recipe contains 13 herbs from the Swiss mountains.
A broader horizon
As the largest economy in Latin America, Brazil sets the pace for the whole region. DACHSER has maintained its own country organization here for ten years now, building bridges to markets around the world.
His ships having strayed off course, Portuguese maritime explorer Pedro Álvares Cabral discovered what he thought was an island on April 22, 1500. He named it Ilha de Vera Cruz (Island of the True Cross) and claimed it for the Portuguese crown. When his government discovered the extent of this discovered territory, they quickly renamed it Terra de Santa Cruz (Land of the Holy Cross). At the time, no one in the old world had the slightest notion of how vast the area really was. From the lush rainforests of the Amazon basin in the north, it stretches some 4,400 kilometers to the highlands and mountains of the south.
The one who looks after everything
It was coincidence that Mihriban Stehle ended up at DACHSER; but after her part-time job, the educational science and sociology graduate made a career for herself at the family-owned company. She now works as a fleet manager in food logistics at the Kornwestheim branch.
Dachser Air & Sea Logistics certified for pharmaceutical shipments on three continents
Following Frankfurt, Mumbai, and Hyderabad, Atlanta is now Dachser’s fourth location to receive certification in ten months, further expanding the company’s network services for its customers in the life science and healthcare sector.
The UK election 2019 - Update
The UK general election on December 12, 2019 gave a clear result in favor of the Torries. As a result, it can now be assumed that the UK will leave the European Union on January 31, 2020 on the basis of the withdrawal agreement that was negotiated on October 17, 2019.
This withdrawal agreement includes a transition period until December 31, 2020. During this period, a comprehensive trade agreement between the UK and the European Union is to be agreed. Until the expiry of this period, no material effects of the withdrawal are to be felt. Thus, according to the current status, only marginal restrictions regarding deliveries to and from the UK can be expected during the transition period.

Suitable adjusting screws for successful logistics
Screws, tools, and assembly and installation material should always be delivered on time. A comprehensive direct delivery concept at Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG ensures that everything arrives on time across Europe. DACHSER is in charge of forwarding deliveries.
Making it through winter safe and sound
As the cold season begins, we see numerous accidents on the roads as a result of darkness and poor visibility. When snow and ice come into the mix, the transportation of dangerous goods may have to be put on hold. Driving bans may then result in delivery cancellations and delays. But if everyone involved complies with the regulations and adapts the way they drive to the weather conditions, vehicles will arrive at their destinations safely - even in winter.
The power of data
Faster and better data ultimately benefits the entire supply chain. How to make goods and information flows more predictable, efficient, and sustainable in times of scarce resources.
Success stories in India

Responsibility and commitment
Between responsibility and obligation: companies as corporate citizens. Excerpts from a speech by DACHSER CEO Bernhard Simon to the non-profit student initiative Enactus in Wuppertal, Germany. This is a network in which students develop entrepreneurial ideas with the aim of improving people’s lives. Today, some 1,650 Enactus teams are active at universities across 36 countries, with some 66,500 students involved.
"Without the corresponding culture, no real compliance is possible"
Numerous contemporary studies and research findings confirm that the best protection against white-collar crime and corporate malfeasance is a compliance approach based on values – such as responsibility, integrity, trust, and honesty – just like the one that DACHSER has been pursuing already for ten years.
