“It was important to us to offer our customers in particular in the automotive industry a transport solution and a connection to our global logistics network from Port Elizabeth to the rest of South Africa,” Thomas Reuter, managing director Dachser Air & Sea Logistics, explains.
Harold Thomas has been appointed manager of the Port Elizabeth branch office. With over 30 years of experience in the freight industry, Thomas will lead a team of highly skilled staff recruited from the Port Elizabeth area. “Dachser South Africa is committed to employing and training local staff. Job creation is and will continue to be important to us particularly given the high level of unemployment in the region,” says Duve.
