Dachser UK, the international distribution and logistics specialist has been awarded the 2019 Logistics Partner of the year for the EMEA region by long-standing customer, Zebra Technologies, the multi-billion dollar global supplier of computer technology and products across many industries.
In a virtual presentation of the award Zebra’s Glen Presley, manager EMEA transportation, commented: “Dachser employees are always ready to go that extra mile, informing us of potential issues before we know ourselves. They are unbelievably flexible and a credit to their business function; they are certainly leaders of the pack.’’
As Dachser’s sales manager in the North of England, Marion Simpson is the primary account handler for Zebra. “We have had a very productive partnership with the Zebra team in Preston for several years,“ she remarked. “The building of a mutual understanding of the day-to-day needs and challenges that our customers face is fundamental to our service approach at Dachser. We are proud to have a successful partnership with Zebra underpinned with trust and respect.”
The supply chain environment in the recent past, particularly connections with European trading partners, has been dynamic and complex. A fact acknowledged by Mark Rollinson, Dachser UK’s managing director, who said: “The on-going uncertainties created by Brexit negotiations, and now the COVID pandemic have created unrivalled challenges both for our customers in marketing their products, and ourselves in operating transport services. However, a culture of flexibility and focus on the changing needs of our partners has helped us maintain the highest possible standards of service. I am delighted that this award from Zebra recognises our people’s dedication.”
