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.
From its European headquarters at Preston in the north of England, Zebra provides its customers across Europe with state-of-the-art hardware and software designed to improve data communication for businesses in healthcare to e-commerce, and from manufacturing to retail. For several years Zebra has used DACHSER's Rochdale-based services for its distribution needs, utilising the logistics operator’s reliable, daily pallet delivery network that encompasses 400 locations throughout Europe.
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’ve had a very productive relationship with Zebra’s 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.“
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, ‘’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’m delighted that this award from Zebra recognises our people’s dedication.“
