As part of the integration within Air & Sea, freight forwarders from Panalpina are currently undergoing training in Air & Sea’s transport management system – with the US taking the lead. Ultimately, the goal is to transfer all customers and volumes from Panalpina’s system to DSV’s system and to have all freight forwarders within Air & Sea operating through the same system.
The offices in Chicago, Detroit, Minneapolis and St Louis were first in line and have undergone intense on the job training to learn the ins and outs of Air & Sea’s transport management system. On 15 October, the system went live at these locations, and they’re now fully up and running.
Niels Larsen, President Air & Sea USA, is happy with the integration so far and is ready to lead his team to great achievements in the future: “I don't know how many miles I have flown the past four months to meet and greet a good 1,500-2,000 PAN staff in North America, but it's a tad..., and I can honestly say that I have met a TON of great and excited PAN talents. I’m very excited about our joint future.”
