DACHSER UK goes daily to Iberia


Dachser Ltd in the UK has begun a daily direct road trailer service to and from San Sebastian (Spain) in co-operation with Azkar Dachser Group, the Dachser SE Group’s subsidiary organisation in Iberia.

Azkar Dachser Group’s San Sebastian hub acts as one of its key gateways for import and export freight distribution to and from the Iberian peninsula, connecting with a comprehensive network of over 69 locations throughout Spain and Portugal.

Dachser acquired the privately-owned Iberian logistics provider in early 2013, following a close working partnership with the company since 2008, during which time freight volumes grew significantly and an increasingly wide portfolio of customers across various industry sectors was served. That growth continues today, as the Iberian and European networks of the combined organisation become ever more closely integrated.

The new direct service from and to the UK will further improve lead times, and will provide a focal point for on-going business development between the two organisations.

“Our customers know very well that the promise of fast transit times means little without consistent reliability ‘, points out Nick Lowe, Managing Director of Dachser UK. ‘Our direct and daily co-operation with Azkar Dachser Group is an important development for us providing a seamless extension to our well-established, high-quality European network services and representing a strategic approach to the incredibly important Iberian market.’

‘Our export customers expect a high quality service throughout the whole of Europe, and the new daily direct connection between Iberia and the UK complements our extensive range of reliable logistics operations’, said Alfonso Hostaled, General Manager for Azkar Dachser Group’s Central & North region.
