Zebra Technologies awards Dachser Logistics Partner of the Year

“A culture of flexibility and focus has helped us maintain the highest possible standards of service”
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 DACHSER Rochdale have supplied Zebra with services for their distribution requirements, utilising the logistics operator’s reliable domestic and European daily pallet delivery network that encompasses 332 European locations and 68 partner 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 have had a very productive partnership with the Zebra team in Preston for several years. 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:

“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.”
