EVERYONE’S in a hurry nowadays, and turnaround and delivery times are as crucial as the cost. Global interconnectedness is more than a modern buzz-phrase: it’s bread and butter for US distribution giant DHL Express. Its powerful international network — 360,000 people in more than 220 countries and territories worldwide — means DHL has this one covered. “We’re already thinking about what the world in 2050 might look like,” the company says — and it’s preparing for the logistics challenges that lie ahead. It also places a priority on customer satisfaction, with the stated goal to “bring joy and prosperity to the people we serve”. With its established network, history of punctual, trouble-free deliveries worldwide, and positive attitude, the BV judges were won-over. The 2019 award for Best Global Logistics Partner (US) duly conferred.
