“We are very happy to have achieved this milestone in such a short time. We feel that we have a very strong team to start developing our services and growing our business. And we are excited to be working together, now being able to fully focus on our business and customers. All +1,000 employees have done an outstanding job coming together as one DSV”.

36 offices in 19 different states

The Air & Sea organization in the USA now counts +1,000 employees across 36 offices; and we have an office in 19 out of 50 US states. That means more dedicated employees at work to service our customers and achieve DSV’s constant goal of growing market share.

All customers have been transferred to the DSV Transport Management System, CargoWiseOne, allowing freight forwarders full transparency and providing great standard or fully customized EDI solutions for the customers.

Boosting Automotive and introducing Healthcare

With the acquisition of UTi, we have further expanded our client base within the Automotive sector as well as added the Healthcare sector to our portfolio. We expect to grow rapidly within the Healthcare sector in the years to come.

In addition, we have boosted the cross-border business between Mexico and the US, which fits perfectly into our long-term strategy for the Automotive sector – one of the fastest growing sectors within DSV US.

Last but not least, with the acquisition of UTi, we have gained comprehensive Road and Solutions divisions in the US, which will enable us to support our clients’ entire supply chain and grow the DSV business even further.

DSV – Global transport and logistics

In 1976, 10 independent hauliers joined forces and founded DSV in Denmark. Since then, DSV has evolved to become the world’s fourth largest supplier of global solutions within transport and logistics.

Today, we add value to our customers’ entire supply chain by transporting, storing, packaging, re-packaging, processing and clearing all types of goods. We work every day from our many offices in more than 80 countries to ensure a steady supply of goods to production lines, outlets, stores and consumers all over the world. Our reach is global yet our presence is local and close to our customers.
