Strategic partnership: BLG LOGISTICS and DEKRA combine competences

BLG and DEKRA will work together more closely in future. The strategic partnership was agreed. Matthias Magnor (COO of BLG), Guido Kutschera (Chairman of the Board of Management of DEKRA Automobil GmbH) during a visit to Bremen.

Matthias Magnor, Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Member of the Board of Management at BLG LOGISTICS, and DEKRA Germany CEO Guido Kutschera have agreed a strategic partnership between their two companies. Together, the partners will tackle strategic issues in the future and combine their strengths in the areas of digitalisation, sustainability and qualification. The partnership will create operational advantages and sales synergies for both companies.

BLG LOGISTICS and the DEKRA companies operate in a constantly changing market environment and want to work together to meet the developments in the areas of lifecycle management and remarketing, digitalisation, process optimisation, quality improvements, zero emissions and employee qualification - keyword: shortage of skilled workers.

Vehicle logistics - from production to delivery to the destination at the dealer or customer - requires the highest level of reliability, safety and an adequate network. BLG COO Matthias Magnor sees a lot of potential for the cooperation: "Through the strategic partnership with the specialists from DEKRA, we offer our customers in the AUTOMOBILE division further added value: holistic solutions as well as services with unique selling points from a single source." With over 4 million vehicles transported per year, BLG LOGISTICS is the leading automotive logistics provider in Europe.

Guido Kutschera, Chairman of the Management Board of DEKRA Automobil GmbH and responsible for the Group's business in Germany, is also convinced by the partnership: "By bundling services from DEKRA and BLG and offering them together, we are responding to specific requirements from the market. More and more customers need packages of expert services and logistics services. BLG LOGISTICS is the optimal partner for us to offer precisely such service packages." DEKRA Automobil GmbH is the most important and largest division within the DEKRA Group. However, other DEKRA companies such as DEKRA Akademie GmbH, DEKRA Automotive Solutions Germany GmbH and DEKRA Event & Logistic Services GmbH are also involved in the partnership.
