Dachser launches Smart Border solution

[ April 10, 2024   //   ]

Dachser has launched two Smart Border Connect services, connect40 and connect42. They provide UK exporters, shipping on DDP incoterms, with frictionless access to Dachser’s European groupage network.
Since Brexit Dachser has created many bespoke customer DDP solutions but Smart border connect is designed to give UK exporters of all sizes frictionless access to its European groupage network.
Smart border connect was piloted at the beginning of February, and many customers have renegotiated their existing DAP incoterms to DDP to take advantage of the faster transit times.
UK and Ireland sales and commercial manager, Mark Cosgrove said: “As more and more UK exporters chose to minimise the impact of post Brexit trading conditions on their EU customers by shipping on DDP incoterms Dachser has developed a scalable, cost-effective solution, to meet this growing demand.”
Cosgrove added that the market was entering a new phase. „Customs solutions are no longer the primary driver of customer procurement consideration, and we return to the historic logistics purchasing drivers of speed to market and quality of service allied with competitive pricing.”
