DANX RESPONDS TO GROWING DEMAND WITH NEW POLISH JOINT VENTURE


Wednesday 8th March 2023: Time-critical logistics specialist DANX (part of the DANX Carousel Group) is pleased to announce a new joint-venture with Polish logistics specialist, ILS. The strategic partnership will create a strong distribution network in Poland, in response to growing demand for high-quality time-critical and in-night logistics solutions in Eastern Europe.

As the sixth largest economy in Europe (by GDP), DANX’s joint venture in Poland will support the DANX Carousel group in realising its ambition to become the European leader for time critical in-night logistics, dramatically growing its service offering and providing a firm foundation for further expansion across Eastern Europe. Both ILS and DANX have extensive experience in aftermarket and spare parts logistics, and this partnership brings together each of their strengths. It is anticipated that the joint venture will be operational by Spring 2023.

About ILS

ILS moves more than 15 million shipments per year and has an extensive  distribution and warehousing network across Poland. With three logistics centres and more than 220, 000 sqm of warehouse space, DANX clients will benefit from ILS’ high-quality services in additional geographies without the need to seek alternative suppliers. This includes ILS’s comprehensive distribution networks and a dense nationwide network of PUDOs, as well as access to ten terminals – three main terminals and seven local ones. Clients will also benefit from ILS’s in-depth knowledge within the Polish market.

ILS’s physical infrastructure will also be complemented by DANX’s existing technology and market-leading processes, offering clients an enhanced user-experience and a seamless, completely end-to-end service.

Commenting on the announcement, Managing Director at DANX Denmark & Poland, Lars Bo Larsen, states: “With the recent growth in the Polish economy , we recognise the importance of responding quickly to changes in the market.  ILS is a national logistics powerhouse in Poland, offering not just a huge physical presence but also in-depth knowledge and vast expertise unmatched in this region. With demand for in-night and time-critical logistics at an all-time high, this partnership combines the very best expertise, dynamic solutions, and a strong network, to ensure our clients can be supported in line with this dramatic market growth.

“This joint venture will also provide extensive support to our wider, ambitious growth plans. For instance, it provides the perfect foundation for advancing sector specialisms – such as Materials Handling and Technology/IT – which can both benefit from our vast PUDO network. Ultimately, it’s a great collaboration and we’re looking forward to getting started.”

Wojciech Aleksandrowicz, President and Managing Director at ILS, refers to the future cooperation: “We would like to provide DANX customers access to the highest quality services in new geographical locations. This includes ILS comprehensive distribution chain and PUDO dense nationwide network, as well as access to modern logistics centres and midi hubs. Customers will also benefit from ILS extensive knowledge of the Polish market.

“DANX is a reliable partner, a company with great potential, knowledge and a significant software and technology background. The establishment of the joint venture is an opportunity to provide our customers with new services, the demand for which has increased significantly in recent years. In-night delivery will comprehensively strengthen our portfolio of services. We believe that this strategic partnership will provide extraordinary opportunities and growth possibilities for both parties,” adds Wojciech Aleksandrowicz.

The joint venture will be established as a 50/50 ownership and the set-up will have a local front and a central infrastructure where the company infrastructure will be delivered by both DANX and ILS.
