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.

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.

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"
