  • DHL Express is providing international freight services for revolutionary Australian invention that has taken the world by swarm
  • The first commercial hive has just been delivered to a raffle winner that raised $100,000 for the Cyclone Pam, Vanuatu relief fund

DHL, the world’s leading logistics company, has just delivered the first release of the revolutionary Flow™ Hive from Brisbane to a bee enthusiast in Washington D.C. who won a raffle that raised nearly $100,000 for those in Vanuatu affected by Cyclone Pam.

The Flow™ Hive is a revolutionary new beehive design that has taken the world by swarm. This futuristic beehive takes 90 percent of the labor out of honey harvesting and it is far more gentle on the bees. The result is ‘honey on tap’ – with interest and orders from beekeepers around the world.
