Dachser is one of Europe’s largest specialist logistics providers to have developed a bespoke industry solution specifically designed for the chemical industry – Dachser Chem-Logistics. During the entire Covid-19 crisis, Dachser has remained fully operational throughout its network and has been supporting the NHS with transportation of vital supplies, including chemicals, pharmaceuticals and medical equipment.

With decades of experience in handling dangerous goods, each year almost 15,000 employees are trained across its network in the safe movement of chemicals. Dachser has the capability to transport sensitive goods reliably, quickly and flexibly throughout Europe. Utilising its extensive European road network, Dachser manages the chemical product’s complete supply chain from procurement via interim storage, packaging and handling to final distribution. This approach optimises the logistics balance sheets of chemical manufacturers, providing them with a partnership which grants them a competitive advantage when it comes to pricing their products.

Dachser operates from four key locations in the UK, at Northampton, Dartford, Bristol and its newest investment in Rochdale. Becoming fully operational in October 2019, the Rochdale facility is on a 3.7 hectares (9.2 acres) site and represents a £14.4 million investment by the company; evidence of Dachser’s commitment to the UK market. In particular, it strengthens the company’s presence in the northern UK region and will further improve its transport and distribution services in one of the British industry’s heartlands. It has helped the operator solidify its working partnership with many of the UK Northwest’s chemical exporters.

Key to these partnerships is Dachser’s standardised data processing, which enables exporters and importers alike to access real-time status information, allowing the tracking of both progress and condition of valuable and sensitive shipments throughout the supply chain.



Dachser UK will be exhibiting at the UK Chemical Industries Supply Chain Expo which will take place on 12-13 May 2021 at a new location, NEC Birmingham.  A team of specialists will be available on the Dachser stand (J45) to welcome new and existing clients. www.chemicalukexpo.com
