DACHSER, a global logistics solutions provider, announced that shippers looking for direct access from Europe to Chile can now utilize its new fixed weekly schedule of LCL services departing from Hamburg to San Antonio.
“Referring to ‘less than container load,’ our new LCL service is designed to meet the specific needs of our customers with smaller merchandise quantities. The service not only optimizes efficiencies and reduces costs, but the fixed weekly schedule improves the planning process,” said Guido Gries, Managing Director at DACHSER Americas.
With this maritime freight service, DACHSER collects container shipments from several European countries and consolidates the freight at its warehouse in Hamburg. From there, the shipment departs out of Hamburg to its final destination of San Antonio. Through DACHSER’s network, this service connects Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia to the Chilean market.
“An effective LCL service comes down to timing—from the coordination of the grouping of goods and to the fixed container trips between ports. Our management of this timing allows our customers the benefit of improved planning and transit times as well as transparency of their shipments,” said Mr. Gries.
“The service offers customers streamlined container coordination and management of all sea freight imports deployed on first class carriers to Chile,” said Mr. Gries. “Thanks to our extensive European logistics network we can offer seamless visibility from the door of the supplier in Europe to the final destination.”
A family-owned company headquartered in Kempten, Germany, DACHSER offers transport logistics, warehousing, and customer-specific services in two business fields: DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics and DACHSER Road Logistics.
