Successful implementation of the Global Air Freight Security Network of DACHSER
The issue of security is of paramount importance when it comes to the worldwide transport of your air freight. To enable DACHSER to support its customers even better in maintaining a secure supply chain, the "Global Air Freight Security Network" project was launched in 2020 by the Air Freight Security Team at DACHSER and has now been successfully implemented.
The goal of the Global Air Freight Security Network is to strengthen the global network of DACHSER. The introduction of a worldwide organization with local contacts will result in more efficient communication between the Air & Sea Logistics locations, enabling a faster reactivity to new regulations and innovations. In addition, a faster implementation of standardized processes of DACHSER worldwide will be enabled.
The implementation of the project will further reduce the risk in the area of air freight security to ensure transportation through strictest compliance with all regulations.
If you have any questions, please contact your local DACHSER representative.

Operational disruptions at the port of Hamburg cause backlogs
With this update, DACHSER would like to inform you that port operations in Hamburg are currently affected in their flow due to various factors.
The current situation of congestion in the northern and western ports has become even more acute in Hamburg. The deployment of the explosive ordnance disposal service twice to defuse World War II bombs in construction areas, togehter with a demonstration by climate activists which led to the temporary closure of an important access road last week, are causing disruptions in handling operations.
Please note that this is causing significant delays at all operational interfaces in the port of Hamburg area and has created a backlog that will continue for some time.

COVID-19 update: Impact on DACHSER’s operations in India
Due to the outbreak of second wave of Coronavirus, we would like to give you an update about the impact on DACHSER’s operations in India. The situation as of today, April 28, 2021, is as follow:
DACHSER branches in India
- Most branch offices across India are being kept closed as a precautionary measure due to the sudden rise of COVID cases. Our teams are working from home, with only skeletal staff at the offices and hence there are likely to be delays in responses due to the ongoing crisis.
- As a consequence of the lockdown, there are some operational impacts for air, sea, customs clearance and domestic trucking.
- Most countries have barred passenger traffic from India leading to no passenger carrying flights operating on International routes from/to India.
- This has created some additional constraint on already stressed space availability situation.
- Rates are bound to inch upwards for all sectors.
- Transit times too have increased as a consequence of capacity crunch.
- Sea freight was already facing the challenges due to the Suez Canal blockage end of March.
- Ports and terminals are functioning normally, but vessel schedules are impacted on account of the Suez Canal blockage as well as the sudden rise of COVID cases in India.
- Delays, roll overs are expected. Customers are advised to factor in delays of 1-2 weeks while planning their inventories.
- Expect more delays in communication or operations due to increasing COVID infections among staff at ports, customs, CFS and shipping lines.
- We do not have any unexpected disruptions in cargo movement in India, nor is any work stoppage expected at present.
- Customs clearance activities are functional at the movement.
- Customs is working with less manpower, no Customs Brokers is allowed to meet the customs officials, all processes is done faceless and things are moving in slow phase.
At DACHSER, we have undertaken significant measures to ensure our employees’ health and safety, at the same time continue to manage our day-to-day operations with minimal impact to our customers’ supply chains. Our teams are working diligently by all possible means in these testing times to assist and to overcome the challenges being faced.
Please rest assured that we will keep you updated of any changes to the current situation. hould you have any concerns and/or queries, please feel free to contact your local DACHSER representative in the region.

Brexit deal agreed - customs administration from January 1, 2021
On December 24, 2020, an agreement on future cooperation and trade was reached between the EU and the UK.
An essential point is that between EU and UK for goods deliveries from both areas no customs duties are to be levied. However, this does not mean that the administrative "customs clearance" will be eliminated. This means that all documents and customs relevant information must be submitted by the customer in advance and only after the shipment has been released by the customs team of DACHSER, the shipment can be accepted for dispatch.
Please note that from January 1,2021 this applies to all shipments between the EU and UK, only shipments from the EU to Northern Ireland are excluded. In particular, proof of preferential origin of goods should be provided. The most important necessary information for exporters and importers can be found in the document below.
