In the Netherlands, Müller operates out of five locations. The company transports and distributes both fresh and frozen food. Its portfolio also includes warehousing across all temperature ranges as well as customer-specific value-added services.

In a press release, it was announced that Müller’s CEO, Jan-Peter Müller, will remain at the helm, supported by his management team.

“Müller has been a leader in the Dutch food logistics market for many years,” says Müller CEO Jan-Peter Müller. “As a part of Dachser, we now have access not only to Dachser’s food logistics network in Germany, but also to Dachser’s European Food Network that serves 34 countries. This means we can offer our customers entirely new options. For Müller, the acquisition opens up considerable growth potential within a rapidly growing international family-owned company. This creates an excellent and reliable outlook, in particular for our employees.”

Alfred Miller, Managing Director Dachser Food Logistics, added:

“For Dachser, acquiring Müller in the Netherlands is an important step toward expanding our business activities in Benelux. With this acquisition, we are safeguarding high-quality distribution capacity for our German and European customers in the key food market of the Netherlands.”

Alexander Tonn, COO Road Logistics at Dachser, also said:

“Reliability and quality are Müller’s top priorities—something we really have in common. Müller’s values as a family-owned company are also a perfect fit for Dachser. Müller is known in the market for its highly qualified and motivated employees—in the offices, logistics centers, and behind the wheel. They’re what makes the company so successful. We’re delighted to welcome them into the Dachser family.”

As a result of the acquisition, Dachser now employs 1,300 people in the Netherlands at different 12 locations.
