Dachser has established a new Far East North cluster across North China and Korea to optimise resources and provide increasingly efficient services to its customers.
Taking up the helm of the region is Yves Larquemin, who assumed his new role as managing director (MD) Far East North on 1 June, 2019.
Bringing decades of experience, he is charged with driving growth across the region. He reports to Edoardo Podesta, MD of Dachser Air & Sea Logistics Asia Pacific Business Unit.
In his previous role at Dachser, Larquemin served as MD Air & Sea Logistics North China since 2012. Under his supervision, the team established an efficient North China air freight gateway in 2017 to streamlined air freight processes, the business area also achieved impressive growth in its warehousing business in 2018 by gaining additional key customers.
“I look forward to leading the newly developed Far East North cluster and spearheading efficient processes and new business opportunities in the region,” said Larquemin. “Customer satisfaction is our top priority, and we believe that the new cluster will lead to more efficient services and new cross-market opportunities for our clients.”
Both North China and Korea share a similar service portfolio at Dachser, as apart from the air & sea logistics business, they also offer contract logistics solutions, which include all logistics services.
Dachser Asia Pacific’s two recently established clusters – Far East South (South China, Hong Kong and Taiwan) and Far East North (North China and Korea) will work closely together.
