Dachser opens Koblenz site

Kempten, Koblenz, Germany: Dachser Food Logistics has expanded its network for temperature-controlled food logistics with a new branch office in Koblenz.

The 12,000sq m site has a 2,000sq m transit terminal and can handle 23 trucks simultaneously. A staff of 24 will ensure smooth transshipment and handling processes and a further 25 drivers will deliver the consignments and collect fresh goods from customers.

Mathias Oetter, manager of the Offenbach branch office says: “With the new terminal we are also responding to the continuously rising demand for our services.”

“At the same time we are thus relieving pressure on the surrounding food logistics branch offices in Offenbach, Überherrn, Alsdorf and Neuss with respect to incoming tonnages and long distances to suppliers and consignees.”

Dachser is also integrating the Koblenz region more closely into its pan-European food logistics network. Alfred Miller, managing director, Dachser Food Logistics, says: “Almost 200 kilometres separate Offenbach and our branch offices in the west.”

“With this new presence in the triangle formed by the North Rhine-Westphalia, Saarland and Rhine-Main region branch offices, we are not only optimizing the final mile. With this first location in Rhineland-Palatinate – the only federal state so far not to have a food logistics facility – we are now also moving closer to our customers.”
