Dachser USA, a subsidiary of global logistics provider Dachser, announced today that, in collaboration with Dachser Mexico and Dachser Brazil, 138 tons of oversized automotive manufacturing machinery was successfully transported from Jundai, Brazil to Silao, Mexico. Dachser USA was introduced to this highly complex project when its customer, a top-tier automotive supplier, approached them with “Are you up for a challenge?”
“As an innovative logistics solutions provider, Dachser regularly guides our customers through complex logistics challenges, including those that require collaboration with our global Dachser partners. But there are certain projects—especially complicated heavy lift projects– that present unique challenges, offering an opportunity to stretch our innovative thinking. I can confidently say that transporting this automotive manufacturing equipment was one of those opportunities,” said Guido Gries, Managing Director, Dachser Americas.
Turning to Dachser for its project cargo expertise and strong connections throughout Latin America, the customer needed to transport an oversized compressor machine, which alone weighed 125 tons, as well as an additional 14 pieces of varying sizes of accessories from Jundiai, Brazil to Silao, Mexico aiming for arrival in early May.
