German logistics company, Dachser, is now operating business in South Korea as Dachser Korea Inc., effective 1 July. The global logistics provider has had presence in the Republic of Korea (South Korea) since 2006 as MGI & Dachser Inc. In December 2013, Dachser acquired the remaining 50 per cent of the joint venture. Alongside the renaming of the company, Dachser also moved into new offices in Seoul.
The head office of the company is located in Seoul with another office in the southern port city of Busan, where Dachser conducts its sea freight business. Dachser also operates a warehouse for air freight handling at the airport in Incheon International Airport.
In addition, the logistics provider offers professional loading services specifically for air freight pallets (consolidation) at the Dachser warehouse facility on the airport hardstands. “Its high-powered economy and its tremendous technological capabilities make this nation of 50 million inhabitants one of Germany’s most important economic partners in East Asia,” says Thomas Reuter, COO Dachser Air & Sea Logistics.
The new Board consists of Roman Müller, managing director Dachser Korea. “We plan to pursue the targeted expansion of our activities in the Korean market and to exploit the close logistical connection to Greater China, the USA, and Europe for our customers,” said Müller, emphasising the significance of South Korea as an economic hub.
