DSV launches Lead Logistics, a market-changing way of providing

intelligent lead logistics – or 4PL – to the world’s leading businesses

The objective for DSV is to seek out the most effective solutions

through the new supply chain service.

It is executed through a new modular

logistics outsourcing solution. Themodular

approach allows us to tailor our services

precisely to our customers’ needs. We

are using cloud-based, state-of-the-art

technology, which supports supply chain

design, implementation, and management

across all modes, geographies, and

currencies.

“Our decision to launch this service is a

direct result of feedback obtained through

industry research, market growth analysis,

and, most importantly, through direct

feedback from our customers,” says Group

Chief Commercial Officer of DSV, Rene

Falch Olesen.

The goal is to enable companies to compete

more effectively in the global market through intelligent supply

more complex, expensive, and time consuming, lead logistics is the

next logical step for DSV in responding to

the needs of our customers.

of transportation services. We provide the

intelligent design and rely on DSV services

and the services of other transportation

providers to perform the physical activities.

“We base the solution on an existing

offering that we have in the US

predominantly for the North American

market. We have combined our lead

logistics skills and experience with a state-

of-the-art IT solution enabling us to offer a

market-changing service,” says Rene Falch

Olesen.
