DHL Expands Import Services Worldwide
In addition to offering the extensive next business day import service to more than 200 countries around the world, the company is now backing its pre-noon and pre-nine import deliveries by on-time delivery guarantees in 135 and 90 countries, respectively. DHL plans to inform consumers on its import services through a global campaign that kicks off this week.
The newly enhanced import services portfolio reflects the company's strategy to concentrate on the cross-border express business. It has considerably strengthened its international express delivery network in 2009, building further its expertise and capabilities. The optimization of its global network and enhancement of its world wide import billing capabilities over the past months paved the way for expanded Import Express services.
DHL Import Express 12:00 is a program for delivery by noon to major cities, towns and business centers, with transportation charges met by the receiver at destination. The company said that customers who need an even earlier delivery to their premises can now take advantage of DHL Import Express 9:00.
Roland Thomas, global vice president of products and services at DHL Express, said: “With a clear focus on international express, DHL has created a strong and very competitive range of services that is being offered to our customers through trained international specialists.
“DHL's import services are ideal for regular import needs and help customers manage their import costs, cash flows and supply chain. Customers also benefit from a one company-one invoice-one currency approach.”
