Dachser Transport of America, US subsidiary of global logistics services provider Dachser, increased its revenue by 16 percent to $192 million in 2014 fiscal year. Dachser also made additional advancements in regards to sea freight and air tonnage. Both grew by 7.3 percent and 23 percent respectively.

Dachser USA currently has 14 locations across the country with new openings in 2014 in St Louis, MO and Memphis. Additionally, Dachser USA has moved into larger facilities in Chicago and Atlanta to support growing customer demand in the Midwest and Southeast.

According to Frank Guenzerodt, President and CEO of Dachser USA, the United States is vitally important for the entire organisation and therefore the focus remains on expanding the US subsidiary over the next few years. He said: “Dachser has realised substantial growth during the last decade, both in its global air and sea logistics and its European overland networks. By interconnecting them closely, Dachser is able to cover complex global supply chains in a one-stop-shop approach.

“Our solution is particularly attractive for multinational companies, which is why we need to continue to grow aggressively in the US market”. The goal for DACHSER is to have 25 locations in the U.S. by 2018.
