Dachser wins Emmi warehousing contract

Kempten, Germany:  Dachser Food Logistics, a German temperature-controlled food logistics services provider, has signed a contract with Swiss milk processor Emmi, to provide warehousing and distribution for the German market.

From July, Dachser will handle logistics for dairy and fresh food products as well as Swiss cheese for Emmi.  As part of the deal, Emmi Germany will use around 3,000 pallet spaces at the Allgäu logistics centre in Memmingen.  Here, the products, over two thirds of which will come from Switzerland, will be consolidated with products from Germany, Italy or other countries, picked and delivered to customers in Germany and parts of Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.

Dachser will provide a range of supplementary services for Emmi, such as display building, finishing, labelling, web-based order tracking and delivery of sample and trade fair consignments.  The new business will generate around 30 new jobs in Memmingen this summer.

The distribution centre, built in 2008, already provides storage capacity for the products of many food customers, including well-known names from the dairy processing industry, in a chilled area of 20,000m2.

“In Dachser’s logistics centre in Memmingen we have identified an optimal location for linking up with the Emmi group’s European network as well as for distributing goods to our discerning customers in Germany,” says Dr Elisabeth Wagner-Wehrborn, managing director of Emmi Germany.

“Dachser will provide us with all our logistics services from a single source, from collection of the goods directly from production through to delivery – including electronic proof of delivery.  What’s more, Dachser is an innovative, sustainable company with high quality standards.  It fits well with Emmi.  We are confident that Dachser’s high service level will enable us to further expand our market presence in Germany.”
