DSV Road, the third largest logistics provider in Europe, based its entry on the launch and growing success of the DSV Daily Pallet service which it rolled out across Europe in May 2013.
DSV Daily Pallet, which offers daily departures to 32 European countries via a hub in Germany, was set up after DSV Road analysed the responses it received to an in-depth customer survey last year.
It operates in addition to DSV Road’s existing direct routes and has increased frequency and improved transit times for customers. The service includes easy online booking, daily pick-up and departure and on-time delivery.
DSV Daily Pallet is one of a series of initiatives which DSV Road has launched in the last year. Its new Quote and Book Portal which gives an instant response to those seeking spot prices is also proving popular, as is its ‘5 for 5’ insurance scheme, offering insurance cover for only £5 for goods worth up to £5, 000.
“We are very pleased to be shortlisted for the European Logistics award, ” says Chris Malyon, Director Sales & Marketing. “We have listened to our customers and designed a completely new service to meet their needs so it is gratifying to have our efforts recognised and to be named as a finalist by the BIFA Freight Service Award judges.”
DSV Road won the Staff Development category at the 2012 BIFA Freight Service Awards.
DSV is a global provider of transport and logistics services. Its owned network of offices in more than 75 countries all over the world makes DSV a truly global player. 22, 000 DSV employees recorded worldwide annual revenue of Euro 6 billion for 2012. www.dsv.com
