DHL Express says it has invested in its operations in the Chicago area of the United States in order to “significantly” enhance its international pick-up and delivery services.
The company has added 40 new employees to its payroll as part of a local investment in operations to help provide later pick-ups and earlier deliveries to and from America’s third largest city.
And, as the city pursues a strategy under Mayor Rahm Emanuel, to double exports over the next five years, DHL is running an “aggressive” advertising campaign around Chicago to draw attention to its improved offering.
The campaign, which starts today, is particularly targeted at small and medium-sized businesses, DHL said.
Al Burba, Sr, the vice president and general manager of the Midwest-Mid-Atlantic area for DHL Express, said Chicago was one of the most “dynamic and thriving” business locations in the US and was key to his company’s strategic growth plans.
“After meticulous strategic planning and preparation, DHL Express is now able to provide business owners in the city with faster, more convenient service and shipping options,” he said.
DHL Express is also sponsoring and acting as Official Express Delivery Provider for the 28th Chicago Latino Film Festival, which concludes on Thursday.
The company delivers to 220 countries around the world.
