The internationally operating logistics provider Dachser GmbH & Co. KG from Kempten, Germany, enters strategic partnership with Fresh Logistics (Raben Group) from Gądki, Poland. The new strategic alliance will enable Dachser to expand its network for temperature-controlled transport services in eastern Europe.

Food Logistics freight services to Poland, the Czech Republic and the Baltic states will from now on be carried out in cooperation with Raben subsidiary
Fresh Logistics.

“This partnership enables us to meet our goal to make reliable and standardised services for all temperature ranges in the non-frozen segment available to customers in these eastern European countries,” says Alfred Miller, managing director of European Food Logistics at Dachser. Daily, precision-timed services to the new transshipment centres in both neighbouring eastern European countries now operate from Dachser’s Schönefeld (Berlin) and Hof branch offices.

The new partner operates a full-coverage groupage network in all five countries. Consignments from all German points of departure thus reach consignees in Poland or the Czech Republic in just two to three working days, depending on the distance from the respective import platform. Like Dachser, Fresh Logistics also offers its customers on-demand shipment status information and digitalized delivery documentation.

As a result of the cooperation, Fresh Logistics will become the biggest partner within Dachser’s European Food Logistics network.
