Dachser Americas has expanded its Less than Container load offerings throughout the Americas. Dachser’s LCL services address the supply chain challenges the industry faces today as well as those that are anticipated in the future as the economy recovers and demand returns. Customers with smaller merchandise quantities can rely on Dachser’s maritime freight consolidation service, which collects container shipments from several companies and consolidates the freight, which is then transported seamlessly to its final destination.
“The increased blanked sailings and reduced ocean carrier schedules as well as the reduction in air freight capacity are dramatically slowing down the flow of goods and accelerating the demand for the reliability and efficiency LCL services provide,” said Guido Gries, Managing Director, Dachser Americas. “Furthermore, as retailers cancel or reduce orders in response to the economy, many shippers are shifting plans from FCL to LCL.”
“As a logistics solutions provider that understands the needs of the marketplace, our role is to offer solutions to challenges, and right now, we are often pointing to LCL as the most efficient, fast and cost-effective way to move freight,” said Gries. “What’s more, customers looking to ship to Northern Europe can take advantage of our European road network to seamlessly connect to almost the entire region.”
