Dachser expands footprint in Arizona
Dachser USA Air & Sea Logistics, a unit of the global logistics provider Dachser, has opened a new, larger office facility in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
This expansion is in response to the increased customer volume within the region, as well as growing logistics demands along the West Coast, the company said in a statement.
Dachser USA’s presence in Arizona is a logical extension of its existing footprint enabling the logistics provider to better serve new and current customers in the area. Further, it is also better positioned to manage increased volume associated with cross-border trade with Mexico, including shipments from manufacturing plants that assemble products in Mexico and for the U.S.
The new Phoenix operation offers over 7,500 sq. ft. of space and includes a new office with capacity for growth to better support regional growth opportunities.
The move to a larger facility significantly enhances Dachser USA’s logistics offerings in the Greater Phoenix region, the company’s statement reads.
“The needs of our customers are at the heart of this expansion. This new facility in Phoenix will allow Dachser USA to grow within the Southwest region as well as expand our capabilities to service the growing market,” said Vincent Touya, Managing Director, Dachser USA Air & Sea Logistics. “As the supply chain evolves, Dachser USA is committed to responding to the needs of the marketplace, investing in regions that enable us to better serve our customers.”
Further, the greater Phoenix area represents an important transportation and logistics hub. In fact, it provides quick access to much of the U.S. West Coast and its ports, as well as the Southwest and Mountain West via three major Interstates (I-10, I-8, and I-40) and two major railways (Union Pacific and BNSF).
“Dachser USA is excited to provide the value-added services and expertise that our customers expect from a global logistics provider. Our customer-centric team will play a key role in further growing our capabilities, enabling greater efficiencies and more collaborative operating models as expectations have increased,” added Mr. Touya. “The new Phoenix facility will better support opportunities for customers who look to Dachser as a competitive differentiator in their supply chain.”
