Dachser sees increase in Asia Pacific market. Germany-headquartered global logistics player Dachser recorded strong growth in ocean and air freight across Asia-Pacific in 2014.
Dachser’s Asia-Pacific network expansion fuelled a 20% increase in ocean freight to 203,900 teu, and a combined 7.8% increase in air and ocean shipments to 355,600. Edoardo Podestá, managing director of Dachser Air and Sea Logistics Asia-Pacific, told The Loadstar that despite the general slowdown in economic growth across the region last year, Dachser was able to increase volumes by consolidating local network operations. “It was a combination of taking full ownership of joint-venture companies in Asia and organic growth. Our ambitious strategy means that we have expanded our network all over the world. “We have also seen opportunities to expand our business in flat markets both through increasing market share and strategic acquisition.”
