Deutsche Post DHL, a postal and logistics group, unveiled details about the company's plans to build on its unparalleled presence in the Asia-Pacific region and to further expand its market-leading position in China. While Asia-Pacific already accounts for almost 20 percent of the company's DHL revenues today, CEO Frank Appel revealed the
Group's growth target for the next five years: By 2017, revenues generated in Asia-Pacific should contribute around one-third to the DHL top line. "Over the past three decades we have established a second to none platform in the Asian markets, which sets the foundation for the continued success of our DHL divisions", Appel stated today at a press conference in Shanghai. "We are well positioned for prolonged profitable growth across the region."
Outstanding market position is based on major investments
With more than thirty years of experience in the market, DHL is the number one logistics brand in Asia. Its Express, Global Forwarding and Supply Chain divisions are the clear market leader in the international express, air freight and contract logistics businesses both in the region as a whole and in many of its most dynamic economies, including China. In combination with its strong ocean freight services, the company is well placed to capitalize on the expected acceleration of transport and trade of products within Asia, as well as between Asia and other emerging markets in the Middle East, Africa and Latin America.
