Mar 31, 2020

Dachser de México S.A. de C.V. (Dachser Mexico), a global logistics provider, announced that it provided air transportation of more than three million surgical and respiratory masks to Germany to help combat the spread of COVID-19. The fully loaded B787/9 airliner represents Dachser Mexico’s first-ever international charter flight.

On March 24, in the wake of this unprecedented health emergency, Dachser Mexico transported the critically needed masks from a charter flight in Mexico City to Frankfurt., where it was distributed throughout Germany via Dachser’s land transport network.
“The team at Dachser Mexico worked tirelessly to collect this vital merchandise over a six-day period. We are very proud of this group of dedicated individuals, who consistently strive to be part of the solution—for our customers as well as mankind,” said Edgardo Hamon, Managing Director, Dachser Mexico. “Another source of pride is completing our first dedicated Dachser air charter from Mexico, which represents a significant milestone in the history of Dachser Global Airfreight.”
Thanks to Dachser Mexico, healthcare workers in Germany will be able to protect themselves and others against COVID-19. These masks play a critical role in keeping people safe as they provide respiratory protection by reducing the wearer’s exposure to airborne particles.
“Stepping up during an emergency is nothing new for our Dachser Mexico team. From ashclouds to earthquakes to pandemics, this group is ready to swiftly respond with innovative solutions,” said Enrico Boehme, Head of Airfreight Mexico/Latin America. “We believe our customers throughout Mexico and Latin America benefit by working with an experienced logistics partner that steps up during a crisis instead of shying away from the challenge.”
