DHL Global Forwarding combats COVID-19
Last week DHL announced how the flexible and pragmatic action of DHL Global Forwarding – introduced as a division of DHL last year is helping to combat COVID-19 by meeting increasing demands within the Life Sciences & Healthcare segment. DHL have been able to provide large quantities of protective equipment and medical products quickly via their charter flights and trains only made possible by new technology, dedicated members of staff and the company’s ability to adapt in the fight against COVID-19.
“We’re currently working faster than ever. Our employees are working almost around the clock to get important deliveries to where they are urgently needed. We’re currently seeing a strong shift in demand towards products and goods needed in the fight against COVID-19. For example, for the past week, we have been transporting around 100,000 COVID test tubes a day from China to Germany and the Czech Republic for a customer specializing in medical accessories. We’re also still transporting everyday industrial goods and products.”
– Tobias Schmidt, CEO DHL Global Forwarding Germany
There are many challenges disrupting logistics due to the Coronavirus which are causing delays in the distribution of medical supplies. The worldwide network and infrastructure of DHL Global Forwarding is still able to effectively maintain supply chains meaning PPE, medicine, and SARS-CoV-2 test kits are still reaching their destinations.
On top of its seamless transportation of medical supplies DHL Global Forwarding is giving customers business continuity solutions to avoid unnecessary transport costs and delays. According to DHL, many of their customers appreciate the tailor-made solutions available to their business which helps keep things moving as quickly as possible ready for when demand in the manufacturing industry or in the retail sector increases again. Hubs and warehouses used to store goods near locations give customers fast and flexible access to their items.
