Year after acquisition, Dachser renames forwarder Transunion


Nearly a year after Dachser acquired Transunion, the integration of the Spanish air and seafreight forwarder into Dachser’s global logistics network is almost complete.

The final step will occur on Jan. 1, 2014, when Transunion begins operating as Dachser Spain Air & Sea Logistics, S.A.U.

Dachser acquired Transunion in January 2013 after more than 15 years of cooperation.

The integration and rebranding applies to Transunion’s former national subsidiaries as well. The change is complete in Turkey and Peru, where they operate as Dachser Turkey Hava ve Deniz Tasimaciligi A.S. and Dachser Peru S.A.C., respectively. The Argentinean operation begins under the name Dachser Argentina S.A. on Jan. 1.

“The air and seafreight business knows no national boundaries. Companies want to work with a logistics service provider that offers them consistent processes and quality standards worldwide,” Thomas Reuter, managing director of Dachser Air & Sea Logistics, said. “By expanding our resources in Spain and these other markets, we are delivering upon our commitment to provide our customers with the best resources across the globe.”

Federico Camáñez, who served as CEO of Transunion, will become country manager of Dachser Spain Air & Sea Logistics.

“Operating under the Dachser brand is a point of pride as we now are part of a network of 160 air and seafreight locations around the world,” Camáñez said. “Our customers benefit from this expanded global network, while benefiting from the established relationships that have been fostered.”
