International logistics provider Dachser and Dutch cargo agent Seacon Logistics have formed a joint venture to focus on intercontinental airfreight business, although it will also concentrate on developing sea freight traffic for the Dachser global network.

The 50/50 joint venture is called Dachser Netherlands Air & Sea Logistics B.V. and will be based in Maastricht, Holland, where Huub Leurs will take over as manager. Future offices will be set up at primary trade locations in the Netherlands.

“The Netherlands as a cargo handling center is gaining in importance particularly in Europe so that our international clientele will benefit from this cooperation,” said Thomas Reuter, managing director of Dachser Air & Sea Logistics.

Dachser has been active in Holland since 1975 through two branch offices, and is set to leverage from the local resources of Seacon, which employs over 350 workers in the country and has a annual turnover of approximately US$149 million.

“Through this joint venture Dachser is gaining direct access to the Dutch and intercontinental market and will profit from the existing local know-how, whereas Seacon Logistics is in a position to use the advantages of the worldwide Dachser network,” said Hai Berden, owner and managing director of Seacon.
