INNOVATION IN ACTION

On its surface, logistics seems straightforward – moving something from A to B – but the truth is that in many cases the relative success of a company’s supply chain is a ‘make or break’ proposition.  Lean manufacturing has more or less become the standard approach among the world’s largest companies across nearly every sector, which is why many businesses are now turning to logistics providers for ways to help maintain a competitive edge.

And this is our specialty at DHL. We provide our customers the opportunity to work closely together with our logistics experts to develop innovative industry-tailored solutions and put innovation into practice – which we have proved by several examples, such as DHL Resilience360, DHL SmartSensor, Vision Picking, or our EffiBOT.
