Dachser expands in the South East

[ March 10, 2020   //   ]

Dachser UK has opened an additional site near to its existing 2,500m2 transshipment terminal on Crossways Business Park in Dartford, Kent.

Since establishing its first branch office in the South East in 2005, the German-owned operator has now extended its capability by acquiring a new 2,700sq m cross-dock terminal with 25 docking stations and five-level access doors.

On top of Dachser’s main import and export services additional services for customers in the region include contract logistics, value-added warehousing, customs clearance and customs warehousing. The new site also optimises domestic distribution and provides a UK gateway for North Africa, Turkey, and CIS traffic.

Dachser UK managing director Mark Rollinson said: “This investment represents a unique development for our southern UK organisation, the Dachser European network, and all our customers. After 15 years of successful growth, we are now even better equipped to adapt and react to any future market challenges and maintain the service levels that our customers have come to expect.”

General manager – South, Patrice Ollivier, added: “By offering our customers a full range of integrated services through this new ‘Dartford Logistics Centre’ we continue to fulfill our mission to create the most intelligent combination of integrated logistical services.”
