Dachser sets up own operation in Brazil

June 4 - Dachser and Logimasters, joint venture partners in Brazil, have re-organised their business in that country and as a result have terminated their mutual joint venture.

Dachser is taking over all international business, which is to be consolidated in the newly created "Dachser Brazil Logística Ltda." headquartered in Indaiatuba. From there, the logistics provider manages air and sea freight business, including existing partner connections. Furthermore, Dachser Brazil is to acquire 1000f the shares in "Logiprojects" and will thus also coordinate international special and project business from and to Brazil.

Dachser Brazil will continue to cooperate with Logimasters on a partnership basis and will in future move ahead with the further development of national forwarding and logistics operations.

Dachser Brazil is managed by Richard Frank Schües, who was latterly employed with Volkswagen Transport of South America and the shipping line CSAV.

"With this step, we are reinforcing our global air and sea freight network and consolidating our position in the Brazilian growth market. This also paves the way for the important pending integration of our logistics systems," says Thomas Reuter, Managing Director Air & Sea Logistics at Dachser.
