DACHSER Food Logistics - a reliable partner in the Corona crisis

The corona pandemic has posed and continues to pose major challenges for DACHSER Food Logistics. During the shutdown in March, the company succeeded in maintaining its ability to deliver without interruption, thus making an important contribution to supplying the population.

During this challenging period, the system relevance was thus demonstrated without any restrictions for the suppliers. The weeks of March were characterized by extreme daily fluctuations and peaks in volume, which DACHSER Food Logistics normally only experiences before Christmas: kilometre-long traffic jams at border crossings, long waiting times at retail warehouses and drastic restrictions for drivers on suppliers' premises or when unloading at the recipient addresses. The extreme slump in the catering and wholesale sales channels has also led to a considerable under-utilisation of the small vehicle fleet.

Positive customer feedback motivates

The Business Line has received letters of thanks or verbal praise from many customers for its reliability during these challenging times. "We are very pleased and extremely proud of this, because such gestures testify to a high level of appreciation and customer satisfaction," says Alfred Miller, Managing Director DACHSER Food Logistics. "They also encourage us not to slacken our commitment. We will continue to offer our customers the best possible service in future and help them to revitalize their distribution channels".

During the dry spell of the past few weeks, DACHSER Food Logistics has kept its fleet capacities fully operational for the post-Corona period. Alfred Miller: "We are prepared and look forward to continuing to work in partnership with our customers".

Emissions calculations with DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics

For several years now, DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics has been compiling so-called carbon footprints (calculation of the CO₂ balance sheet) of freight transports and summarizing the individual transport-related calculations in emissions reports. The preparation of these reports is a value-added service offered to DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics customers worldwide and is tailored to the individual needs of the customer. In general, primary energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and various air pollutants can be calculated at consignment level. This can also be broken down to individual transport sections. In this way, transport-related carbon footprints can be calculated for complete transport chains, including the pre-carriage, main carriage and onward carriage.

DACHSER uses an emissions calculator for the calculations, which meets all the requirements of the European standard for calculating greenhouse gas emissions from passenger and goods transport (EN 16258). Another advantage of the emissions calculator is that the calculation processes are automated via an XML interface to our Othello transport management system. This allows the emission reports to be generated completely automatically.

In general, the emission calculation in the first step serves to determine the primary energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and air pollutants emitted by transports. However, this information is essential for deriving necessary measures to reduce emissions. Therefore, in addition to the pure calculations, it is also important to be able to provide our customers with further bases for decisions on emission reduction. For this reason, customers receive simulated calculations of alternative means of transport and bundling strategies on request.

In addition to a comparison of the classic means of transport by air and sea, the alternative of rail transport (see DACHSER Rail Services) is also highlighted for customers. 

If you have any questions about our emissions calculator, please contact your DACHSER contact person.
