We feel that we have a very strong team to start developing our services and growing our business. And we are excited to be working together, now being able to fully focus on our business and customers. All +1,000 employees have done an outstanding job coming together as one DSV”.
All customers have been transferred to the DSV Transport Management System, CargoWiseOne, allowing freight forwarders full transparency and providing great standard or fully customized EDI solutions for the customers.
