DHL Express is bringing its global management team under one roof with the opening of a new global head office and global Quality Control Center in Bonn, Germany.
The move to a new technologically advanced building will create synergy across its key business functions. DHL also aims to bring increased collaboration between its express and logistics businesses as a result of the new office’s close proximity to Deutsche Post World Net’s headquarters.
Commenting on the opening of the new office, John Mullen, chief executive officer of DHL Express says: ‘This marks the start of a new era for DHL Express. Not only have we established our infrastructure globally but we have engaged the right talent pool in our global team to forge stronger partnerships between the business units. The new Express head office supports our aim to leverage the value added service offerings provided by the Express and Logistics teams and will enable a more collaborative approach to sales, service and subsequent talent development. In addition, the Global Quality Control Center will ensure we provide the proactive monitoring of our customers’ shipments, no matter where they are in the world.’
The new head office in Bonn is part of a world wide infrastructure enhancement plan that will help DHL Express establish more seamless global operations. The plan also included the creation of the newly-opened state-of-the-art European central hub in Leipzig, Germany, which improves intra-European connectivity and also connects Europe with many intercontinental destinations in the US, Asia and the Middle East.
