Dachser Broadens Its Horizons With the Opening of Dachser Peru

KEMPTEN, GERMANY and LIMA, PERU--(Marketwired - Dec 16, 2013) - A little more than ten months after the acquisition by Dachser, the Spanish air and sea freight forwarder Transunion, S.A., is completing its integration into the network of the global logistics provider. From now on, the Peruvian country organization will be operating as DACHSER Peru S.A.C.

"The air and sea freight business knows no national boundaries. Large customers want to work with a logistics service provider that offers them consistent processes and quality standards worldwide," explains Thomas Reuter, Managing Director of DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics. "With the change of company name we want to emphasize that the country organization now belongs to the network of 160 air and sea freight locations of Dachser. Our customers in Peru benefit from this expanded global network; at the same time, they will keep their established contacts in the branches even after the name change, of course."

Dachser acquired the family business Transunion in January 2013 after more than fifteen years of cooperation. The Peruvian office of the Spanish company is located in Lima. In 2012, the company with offices in Spain, Argentina, Peru and Turkey generated a revenue of around 100 million euros.
