DHL to transfer two centres to Bahrain

Global leader in international express, overland transport and air and ocean freight, DHL has decided to transfer two of its main aviation services centers from Africa and Europe to the kingdom.

Operations of its Harare and Brussels centers would be merged and shifted to Bahrain to serve the Middle East, North Africa and Eastern Europe segments.

Bahrain’s official new agency, BNA, reported that the kingdom’s Civil Aviation Affairs under Secretary made the announcement and said the move would centralize all the company’s aviation services in the region.

Bahrain is a major hub for the cargo leader’s Middle East operations with its regional distribution centre based at the Bahrain International airport. With a fleet of 17 aircraft and 250 vehicles it operates an integrated air and land network catering to the Middle East and Arab worlds.

DHL began its Bahrain operations way back in 1974 with postal parcel services and currently has over 550 employees here to cater to the region’s DHL Express customers. DHL Bahrain became the first centre in its global network to launch a new portfolio of Express products moving to a time and day based range.

Fuelled by its logistics and express divisions, the company’s consolidated revenue climbed up 5.4 per cent to 30.9 billion euros in the first half of the fiscal, the Bahrain regional centre contributing a sizeable chunk of it.
