In Gothenburg, 16 haulier companies and other partners in Sweden met with DFDS to share knowledge and work together to serve customers.
It is very important to remain close with haulier companies and other partners that we work with in Logistics. For this reason, 16 hauliers, planners and self-billing partners were invited to a lunch meeting on 29 January at Arken Hotel in Gothenburg.
More than just a good meal in great company, the meeting aimed to ensure that our partners remain informed about what we are doing and also to ensure that we discuss developments together.
Mathias Dahlström, Managing Director of Sweden, spoke of DFDS in general, the DFDS Way and our Swedish Logistics organisation. “The meeting sparked discussions about how we can do even better together and what practical challenges we expect to face because of Brexit, including customs clearance. It was encouraging for everyone to hear how prepared we are and to get details about what we have done.”
Alice Rrucaj and Simon Allen from PrimeRevenue were also invited to speak about the benefits of early payments, which several of the participating hauliers spoke highly about.
Haulage Procurement Manager in Logistics Sweden, Anneli Hellgren, says: “We spent three enjoyable hours together, and though the busy times prevented everybody from being there, we appreciate the great support. We expect and hope that more hauliers will join in with PrimeRevenue and early payments, as it makes lives easier for both parties, since they get paid for services much quicker, and it also streamlines things for us.”
