Dachser adds more floor space for food

Dachser is gearing up for the launch of a new European Food Network with investments at a number of locations.

It has invested some €50 million at three sites, Langenau, Kornwestheim, and Schönefeld, for the transhipment and storage of food.

Alfred Miller, managing director of Dachser Food Logistics, said the business had seen 13 per cent growth in 2013. “We anticipate additional growth momentum with the launch of the European Food Network and the vivengo product group on 1 October.

“In preparation for this, we had to acquire additional capacity in a timely manner—as we did in Langenau, Kornwestheim and Schönefeld for €50m, for example. This is the only way we can maintain stable operations in our network during the peak capacity periods of four-day weeks, and offer our customers a consistently high level of service quality at the same time.”
