INFOGRAPHIC: How DHL helped Bayern Munich during winter training
DHL, the world’s leading logistics company, has scored its next goal for FC Bayern Munich by shipping key equipment to the Bundesliga champion’s winter training camp in Doha.
DHL became an official platinum partner and the new international logistics and ecommerce full-service partner of FC Bayern Munich last year. The six-year agreement will see DHL use its global logistics and e-commerce expertise to help the world’s biggest football club, with 250,000 members and almost 300 million supporters worldwide, expand its international presence and capitalise on its global merchandising potential.
DHL Trade Fairs and Events, the specialised DHL Global Forwarding, Freight subsidiary of the logistics giant which takes exclusive care of reliable and on-time logistics of trade fair and event goods, managed the 1,600 kilogram shipment in a flight from Germany to the training camp in Qatar earlier in January. The cargo included training clothes and equipment, special medical supplies and others, and the training camp concluded with a friendly match in Saudi Arabia.
