KEMPTEN, Germany: April 02, 2019. With a record number of 30,609 employees, Dachser reported a 5.5 percent rise in consolidated net revenue to €5.57 billion for 2018. Shipment numbers increased 2.5 percent to 83.7 million and volume rose 3.0 percent to 41.3 million tonnes during the year.

DACHSER 2018 reportDespite the positive figures, the company said the year was marked by the shortage of professional drivers and logistics operatives; potential capacity bottlenecks resulting from pronounced seasonal peaks and a shortage of load capacity; a growing uncertainty about diesel driving bans; Brexit and the future of international trade relationships.

“By 2018, it was clear that logistics had to focus on the discipline of scarce resources management,” commented Dachser CEO Bernhard Simon. “Against this backdrop, it is important to handle growth with purpose and manage it such that we maintain a healthy balance between quality, processes and costs. Only sustainable growth will benefit our employees and customers.”

Last year the company invested €126 million in logistics facilities, IT systems and technical equipment and has allocated a further €234 million for this year.

With a strong focus on training, the company has 207 people training to become professional drivers, making it of the largest driver training centres in Germany. “Our next step is to broaden our focus to include logistics operatives in transit terminals and warehouses,” Simon added.
