Dachser, the growing mid-sized forwarder, has expanded its operations to Sweden.
It has opened an air and sea freight office in Gothenburg, and appointed Anna Bergdahl (pictured third from left) to head it. It currently has eight staff there, but hopes to increase this to 20.
“For us, Dachser Air & Sea Logistics Sweden is a further investment in our global air and sea freight network and a way to build up our position in the Scandinavian market,” said Jochen Müller, chief operating officer, Air & Sea Logistics.
Dachser already has branch offices for air and sea freight in Denmark and Finland. “Our new office in Gothenburg lets us offer our Swedish customers access via Dachser to global markets,” Mr Müller added. The office will offer air, sea, rail, customs clearance and warehousing.
Working together with the Swedish overland transport organization, which has four offices in Sweden, Dachser can now offer its existing and potential customers the full portfolio of multimodal logistics services., it said.
Anna Bergdahl joined Dachser from DB Schenker, where she was ocean import manager for Sweden.
“In the long run, interlocking with our overland transport activities will make us a strong service provider in Scandinavia and put us in a position to offer customers all our services,” she said.
Dachser Air & Sea Logistics opened a branch office in Kolding, Denmark in 2018. In Denmark, Dachser Air & Sea Logistics has offices in Copenhagen and Kolding; in Finland, it has offices in Helsinki and three further locations.
