DHL Supply Chain has become the first logistics organisation in the UK to gain corporate accreditation from Association for Project Management (APM) for its in-house project community, confirming its commitment to project management and developing its people in line with its business strategy. 

The achievement reinforces DHL's commitment to the project management profession, as well as setting an industry benchmark. With a workforce of over 50,000 working across 400 sites, DHL Supply Chain offers a market-leading service capability in the UK, from supply chain analysis and design, to large scale warehousing and transport management operations.

“Today marks a watershed for APM as we see the first logistics organisation to achieve corporate accreditation,” Andrew Bragg, Chief Executive of APM said. “Within APM’s professional community, organisations of every type and from every sector have an important role to play in raising the bar of project professionalism, and DHL typifies good practice in supporting APM’s Five Dimensions of Professionalism.”

Chris Sharp, Chief Operating Officer, DHL Supply Chain, added: “Project Management is fundamental to our Operations Excellence strategy; the more rigorous the implementation, the better the entire customer experience from programme delivery right through to contract renewal.

“Having APM corporate accreditation tells our stakeholders that we’re committed to driving excellence across every aspect of their business and that project management sits firmly at the top of our agenda.”
