Latest update on DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics operations

With this update DACHSER would like to inform about the current DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics operations across the regions APAC, EMEA and Americas. In the attached document (see download below) it is listed whether a country organization of DACHSER is operational or, if only limited or not at all, why this is the case. Since the situation in the countries may change rapidly, the attached document will be updated on a regular basis and published on our website.

We sincerely regret any inconveniences caused to our customers due to the pandemic. At DACHSER, we have contingency measures in place and will offer our customers the best alternative solutions to keep the supply chain running. Anyhow, the situation at ports, airports or customs authorities might cause delays. Furthermore, the capacity situation on the global airfreight market is very tense as there are basically no passenger flights operating at the moment.

At the same time, DACHSER has installed strict hygiene measures (e.g. home office) to ensure a safe working environment and to do our part in stopping the spread of the virus. DACHSER is trying to keep the impact of these measures as low as possible, however, together with the official measures by the governments, the precautions may lead to some delays in the operations.

In case of any questions and/or queries, please feel free to contact your local DACHSER representative.

Brexit update: the importance of a customs power of attorney

Although COVID-19 is influencing the Brexit negotiations, as of today negotiations between the EU and the UK are again being conducted via video conference. Three rounds of negotiations, each lasting one week in April, May and June, are planned to advance the details of a trade agreement. So far, the end of the transition phase for the Brexit is December 31, 2020, and DACHSER continues to prepare for this date.

A number of important points need to be taken into account when preparing for the Brexit, for example a customs power of attorney from the relevant recipients is essential for handling shipments to and from the UK. We therefore ask our customers to continue to advise their consignees to provide us with the necessary customs power of attorney.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with your contact at the relevant DACHSER branch.

COVID-19 pandemic: Impact on operational processing in India

In order to contain the spread of Covid-19 virus, Government of India and authorities have enforced a three week ban with effect from midnight of 24 March 2020, which prevents all entries from Europe into, in addition to the already existing entry ban for visitors from several Asian countries. All offices and non-essential services will remain closed during this period.All DACHSER offices will remain close down during this period, until any further notice.

This will create a delivery restrictions in each product category:

Air:

  • LH has cancelled their freighters to/ from BOM due to no staff to handle the same at the airport. Staff are unable to reach work due to lock down and curfew
  • Other freighter operators like QR, EK, TK, CX etc. may soon follow suit, please check at your end for any import dispatches into India
  • Flights within India will also be stopped Mar 25 onwards until Mar 31

Sea:

  • There is a shortage of truck drivers and due to the curfew all transport is at a standstill
  • At Nhava Sheva port, except very limited import shipment which are essential supplies such as medication, no vehicles are being allowed in or out, so basically no import and export container movements taking place since this March 24
  • CFS labour did not report to work, goods vehicles could not move freely as such all activities - stuffing & de-stuffing at CFS' is at a standstill
  • Empty container depots are not working and combined with lack of trucks, no export pickups are possible.
  • The above may turn out to be the case in all other ports and ICDs in India in the next couple of days
  • Various associations have represented to the government to make sure the working of the CFS is not hampered as supplies like pharma and food stuff need to be imported for the country
  • All the vessels with the last port of call from China, Italy, Iran, Republic of  Korea, France, Spain,  Germany, UAE, Qatar, Oman and Kuwait to be quarantined for a period of 14 days from last port of call before they can be accepted at Kolkata Port Trust (KoPT)

Customs:

  • While documents can be filed online, any cargo requiring physical check before import or export is not possible due to travel restrictions and lack of both customs and brokerage staff.

Domestic:

  • All transportation services (air, road and rail) remains suspended across India, hence we are unable to provide any local transportation or CHA services until further notice

We understand that this may lead to an inconvenience till the time the situation eases, but  to maintain the larger interest of the nation, we would like to save everyone from potential risks & hence request your kind understanding on the same.

However, Our teams will be working from home and will be available during the office working hours and tackle all emails, calls and escalations promptly.
