Dachser doubles its warehouse capacity in Hungary

Featuring 38,000 m² of warehouse space and 4,700 m² of office space, the new location will be seamlessly incorporated into the processes, quality standards, and IT systems of the European Dachser network for food and industrial goods. In addition to storage in different temperature zones, other customer-specific value-added services will also be available. Once this operation is up and running, the warehouse capacity in Hungary will have doubled to 69,000 m².

The new branch office in Budapest will take over all of the activities of the Food Logistics office in Biatorbágy. Due to its central location, it will also function as the platform for cross-border food transports from and to Hungary.

This move will also connect the two other Food Logistics branch offices in Miskolc and Szeged to 30 European countries via the European Food Network, enabling them to utilize all of Dachser’s eLogistics functions. Customers of the European Logistics business line will also be able to use a non-temperature-controlled area in the warehouse.

“The significantly improved working conditions create a foundation for further growth. The new facility enhances our position on the Hungarian market considerably,” says Alfred Miller, Managing Director Dachser Food Logistics. The location benefited substantially from the infrastructure that connects it to the Budapest metropolitan area. This moved the company closer to its customers from the food production, retail, and export sectors, thus improving both quality and service.

Liegl & Dachser has the European Logistics and Food Logistics business lines available at nine locations in Hungary. Its more than 300 employees generated revenue of EUR 76.3 million in 2015.

Dachser provides its customers with a total of 1.5 million m² of warehouse space on four continents, which includes 245,000 m² for temperature-controlled storage of food products.
