BT has signed a global innovation partnership agreement with Deutsche Post DHL to support DHL’s Solutions & Innovations unit.
BT will have access to the DHL innovation centre and the two firms will conduct joint research and development. This will include RFID and security solutions for the supply chain and green and sustainable logistics.
Petra Kiwitt, executive vice president, DHL Solutions & Innovations, said: “Like us, BT operates globally, addressing the needs of many of the best known brands in the world. We are confident that both companies will identify great new opportunities that will help us push the logistics industry further at the forefront of innovation.”
A special focus will be on the emerging markets of Asia Pacific, where BT is investing in next generation infrastructure and supply chain capabilities. BT recently signed a contract to supply DHL with communications services across the region.
