Dachser launches groupage service between Poland and Slovakia
German freight company Dachser is moving further in developing its road freight services in Central Eastern Europe. To this end, it launched a new daily service between the eastern regions of Poland and Slovakia. The connection is dedicated to transporting less-than-truckload cargo.
With the new 200-kilometre-long service, Dachser connects two major cities of Poland and Slovakia: Rzeszów, the capital of the Subcarpathian Voivodeship, and Košice, Slovakia’s second-largest city. The company’s trucks run on a daily basis to enable the next-day delivery between the eastern regions of both countries. The first shipments on the route began in May.
Dachser started the new groupage service for two reasons: in a response to customer needs and for the development of its international transport network. “Thanks to the strategic location of Košice in the vicinity of national roads and international routes, the new connection not only speeds up deliveries to the Slovak market but also opens doors to European and Polish exporters to other Central European countries,” said Szymon Charachajczuk, regional sales manager at the Dachser branch in Rzeszów.

The new less-than-truckload service is operated by the Rzeszów branch of Dachser. It is based at the Rzeszów-Jasionka airport, close to the A4 motorway, and owns a logistics warehouse with an area of nearly 3,000 square meters and a reloading terminal with nine reloading ramps. Besides the Rzeszów branch, Dachser has eight other offices in Poland: in Warsaw, Wrocław, Poznań, Gdańsk, Brwinów, Sosnowiec, Stryków and Szczecin. They jointly serve around 100 daily European groupage connections.
