Dachser integrates Azkar with name change
May 12, 2017: Dachser has integrated its Iberian subsidiary Azkar Group into its European road network. The overland transport organisations will operate under the names of Dachser Spain and Dachser Portugal in the future. This was announced by CEO Bernhard Simon, COO Road Logistics Michael Schilling, and Juan Antonio Quintana, managing director European Logistics Iberia, at the transport logistic trade fair in Munich.
This rebranding is the culmination of an integration process that began in January 2013 with Dachser’s acquisition of Azkar. The companies had already been cooperating since 2007, and one year later Dachser purchased a stake of 10 percent in its then partner for Spain.
Bernhard Simon, said, “The two companies were an excellent match right from the word go. We share the same values, and we have the same corporate culture and business vision. On this basis, we were able to advance quickly and smoothly with the integration. Simultaneously, we have achieved profitable growth on the Iberian Peninsula every year since the takeover.”
Since the acquisition, Dachser has closely integrated its organisations in Spain and Portugal into its European groupage network. The 70 daily import and export lines that existed in 2013 have increased to 130 today, while the number of shipments from and to Europe grew by 40 percent over the same period.
A rebranding is accompanying the end of the integration. The national subsidiaries will operate under the names of Dachser Spain and Dachser Portugal in the future. “That was our goal, which was advocated by employees, management, and customers,” underscores Juan Antonio Quintana.
“Being united under the Dachser banner benefits employees and benefits customers even more. That’s why, with network expansions in mind, we’re investing in jobs, facilities, and in the integration of systems and processes. On the Iberian Peninsula today, we’re beginning a new chapter in our shared success story” Bernhard Simon concluded.
On the Iberian Peninsula in 2016, Dachser transported some 20.5 million shipments with a weight of around 3.0 million tons and achieved sales revenue of around EUR 741 million. In total, Dachser offers its customers in Spain and Portugal a warehouse area of 424,000 square meters with 362.000 pallet spaces.
