Dachser has expanded its Midwestern footprint by opening a new location in Detroit, making it the fifth office in the region.
Detroit is best known as the centre of the US automotive industry, with the “Big Three” auto manufacturers headquartered in Metro Detroit. The new location provides Dachser with the ability to work with another sizeable US airport that services a large number of international flights. This expansion will further meet the demand of Dachser’s customers as the company becomes even more integrated into the automotive industry.
“After recently expanding the Cincinnati and Minneapolis offices, Detroit was the next logical step for our Midwest expansion,” said Frank Guenzerodt, President and CEO of Dachser USA Air & Sea Logistics Inc. “As a service provider, being close to our customers is vital. Therefore, we will continue to focus our efforts on expanding our physical footprint in the United States, as well as finding innovative ways to meet customers’ needs best.”
Dachser combines its efficient European road transport and warehousing network with global air and sea logistics offering shippers integrated logistics solutions from a single source while optimising their worldwide supply chains. Besides continuously focusing on the European and Asian trade lanes, Dachser USA is also expanding business to and from Latin America.
“We are consistently searching for ways to improve our intelligent combination of logistics network competences to achieve the best possible connection between our markets. This expansion into Detroit will further our ability to serve the growing demands presented by the automotive industry”, said Guenzerodt.
