Impact of COVID-19 on DHLC and underlying DHL business

Hi there! Thanks for giving us this opportunity!

I wonder how the current crisis does impact DHL's business. I guess there is a lot going on with a lot of freight getting shipped. Would optimizing the supply chain be part of DHLC project work?

Hi there!

Short answer: Definitly!

We are working on different supply chain and logistics projects on different scales. Currenlty, we are e.g. supporting a joint project with local supermarkets to deliver groceries to people under quarantine in Heinsberg (the region in Germany suffering the most from the COVID-19 pandemic). Another example would be a team that is supporting the sourcing and distribution of personal protective wear (such as masks) for our colleagues who are delivering parcels and mail.

However, we also work on many non-supply chain projects as the internal management consultancy of Deutsche Post DHL (DPDHL). E.g. Digitalization, Finance or HR projects.

Traditionally, pure supply chain projects (as in network re-modelling, inventory distribution, etc.) are mostly done for external customers and less for DPDHL departments.

Let us know if you have any follow-up questions!

Kind regards,
Max
