DACHSER, a global logistics solutions provider, has announced its new fixed weekly schedule of LCL (Less than Container Load) services departing from Hamburg in Germany to San Antonio in Chile.
Guido Gries, Managing Director, DACHSER Americas, commented, “The service not only optimizes efficiencies and reduces costs, but the fixed weekly schedule improves the planning process.”
With this maritime freight service, DACHSER says it offers direct access from Europe to Chile. The German logistics company explains that it collects container shipments from several European countries and consolidates the freight at its warehouse in Hamburg. From there, the shipment departs out of Hamburg to its final destination of San Antonio.
Through DACHSER’s robust network, this service connects Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia to the Chilean market.
“An effective LCL service comes down to timing—from the coordination of the grouping of goods and to the fixed container trips between ports. Our management of this timing allows our customers the benefit of improved planning and transit times as well as transparency of their shipments,” said Gries.
Further, DACHSER offers interlocked logistics solutions through its DACHSER Road Logistics and DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics business fields, with services including transportation, warehousing and complementing value-added services. The Kempten-based company also handles pre-carriage through its European overland transportation network. These shipments can be tracked transparently from the supplier in Europe to a recipient in Chile or anywhere in the world.
“The service offers customers streamlined container coordination and management of all sea freight imports deployed on first class carriers to Chile,” added Mr. Gries.
