The Chinese New Year is one of the yearly occurrences that has a substantial impact on the global freight market. The production in Chinese factories is more or less put on hold in connection with the celebration, and the transport capacity is significantly reduced across all means of transport. However, this year the Chinese New Year might have an even greater impact than usually, and if you are not already considering this impact in your business planning, now is the time to do so.
DSV will invest in a string of 20 automated DSV Fulfilment Factories across Europe, North America, and APAC. These large-scale multi-user facilities enable DSV to offer warehouse automation to all sizes of companies across different markets and distribution channels, both B2C and B2B.
DSV and New Balance have agreed to expand their long-standing collaboration. With the new agreement, DSV triples the volume stored and distributed for New Balance in EMEA. To accommodate this significant increase in volume, a tailor-made and automated 60,000 sqm DSV warehouse facility in Venlo, NL, has been upgraded and is now inaugurated.
