Successful implementation of the Global Air Freight Security Network of DACHSER
The issue of security is of paramount importance when it comes to the worldwide transport of your air freight. To enable DACHSER to support its customers even better in maintaining a secure supply chain, the "Global Air Freight Security Network" project was launched in 2020 by the Air Freight Security Team at DACHSER and has now been successfully implemented.
The goal of the Global Air Freight Security Network is to strengthen the global network of DACHSER. The introduction of a worldwide organization with local contacts will result in more efficient communication between the Air & Sea Logistics locations, enabling a faster reactivity to new regulations and innovations. In addition, a faster implementation of standardized processes of DACHSER worldwide will be enabled.
The implementation of the project will further reduce the risk in the area of air freight security to ensure transportation through strictest compliance with all regulations.

Heavy rainfall in China
The heavy rainfall in the Chinese province of Henan over the past few days has led to widespread flooding and the cancellation of many regional train and road connections. These restrictions are causing delays along the supply chain of DACHSER Rail Services.
Due to the flooding, around 100,000 people have been evacuated and many dams and reservoirs have risen to warning levels. With more rain expected in the coming days, it is still unclear by when the situation in the flooded areas will resolve.
If you have any questions regarding your supply chain, please contact your local DACHSER representative.
