ATLANTA (Feb. 29, 2012) --- Dachser Transport of America Inc. (Dachser USA), the U.S. division of one of the world's leading global logistics service providers, announced that parent company Dachser has started construction of a new branch office in Zevenaar, the Netherlands, to accommodate soaring volume. The facility is expected to start operations this summer and will be one of Dachser's largest branch offices in Europe.
The approximately 325,000-square-foot logistics complex is being built in multiple stages on a site of more than 20 acres. "The volume at the Zevenaar location has soared in recent years," says Aat van der Meer, managing director of Dachser Netherlands. "As a result of this growth, we have outgrown our present site."
With the new complex, Dachser is able to further expand the global reach of their warehousing and contract logistics activities and increase access to worldwide markets. The new facility will provide an even closer link to global procurement and distribution channels.
"This expansion further supports growth of our network overseas and therefore only helps to expand the capabilities we offer to our American clients and their global partners," says Frank Guenzerodt, President and CEO of Dachser USA.
The first construction phase encompasses a 77,500-square-foot cross-dock with 82 bays as well as a three-story office building. Following completion of the first phase, the office expansion will include the construction of an additional 35,520-square-foot cross-dock and a 173,000-square-foot warehouse.
