DHL is present in more than 220 countries and territories across the globe, making it the most industry leading company in the world. With a workforce exceeding 285,000 employees, it provides solutions for an almost infinite number of logistics needs.
DHL is part of the world's leading postal and logistics Group, Deutsche Post DHL and encompasses three divisions: DHL Express, DHL Global Forwarding, Freight and DHL Supply Chain.
The company goes beyond the simple fact that it has an unmatched global presence. Its mission extends beyond its unique ability to offer a wide range of logistics solutions, encompassing everything from international express deliveries, to warehousing, to customs brokerage, to freight forwarding. The DHL vision stresses that it wants to be the logistics provider people turn to – their first choice not only for all their shipping needs, but also as an employee or investor.
This is further underlined in its mission statement, which has four main elements:
1) DHL aims to simplify the lives of its customers
2) DHL makes its customers, employees and investors more successful
3) DHL makes a positive contribution to the world
4) DHL always demonstrates respect when achieving results
The company prides itself on remaining true to the belief that pursuing all of these goals is in the interest of both the company and in the interest of all of its stakeholders: customers, employees, investors and the planet as a whole.
