Shipping News Feature

POLAND – UK – Freight and logistics group DSV, which now claims to be the world’s fifth largest freight service provider, has extended its road haulage services between the UK and Poland, from its existing routes at the company’s terminals in Warsaw, Wroclaw and Łódź, DSV has now added facilities at Gdansk and Poznan to enable coverage of all of the country’s industrial areas. Part load and groupage services to the UK have developed as Poland’s industry has taken off since EU membership, and DSV is celebrating the inauguration of the new routes by offering ‘Goody Bags’ to all new customers using them until August 31.

DSV has grown since it purchased Frans Maas in 2006 and merged with ABX two years later and the company believes that the strong development of trade in the region justifies its confidence in this latest expansion. Piotr W. Krawiecki, CEO of DSV Poland Road Division, explained the rationale for the development:

“We’re experiencing growing demand for high quality groupage services from our customers. By opening up new routes to and from Poland DSV will be able to meet those demands and deliver fast and reliable groupage and part load service to accommodate our client’s high requirements.”

DSV UK and DSV Poland are both equally involved in the creation and delivery of the new services. Both teams say they are focused on providing reliable options and are focusing on the requirements of their customers. Michael Morberg Madsen, Divisional General Manager for the Eastern Europe region at DSV Road Ltd in the UK said:

“Over the past few years, DSV has experienced growth in our trade lines from Poland, especially with products like windows, doors, furniture, machinery, car parts, packaging materials and food products. When speaking to both UK and Polish based customers, including small and medium sized manufacturers, as well as large retailers and blue chip companies, we’ve established that there is demand for direct departures to and from Poland to speed up delivery time.

“Alongside the fact that Poland has one of the fastest growing economies in the EU, DSV feels that the expansion of our already extensive services from this region is a timely, tactical investment. Along with our colleagues in Poland, we’re all working towards the same goal of great service and reliable delivery. This joined up approach helps to create ownership and heightened responsibility for each shipment, whether the customer is based in Poland or the UK.”
