DP DHL scoops European Enterprise Award

Deutsche Post DHL received the enterprise award “Best of European Business” 2011 in the category “success in Asia’s markets of the future” last night (Thursday). The award has been presented since 2005 by Roland Berger Strategy Consultants. It was given to Deutsche Post DHL in recognition of DHL’s extensive presence and success in Asia.

The jury said it based its decision in particular on the company’s “high level of customer satisfaction and its environmental-protection activities”.

DHL has been doing business in China and India for more than 30 years. Today, it employs more than 55,000 people throughout the region.

Frank Appel, the CEO of Deutsche Post DHL who accepted the award in person at a ceremony in Berlin, said: “The enterprise award is a validation of our decades-long success in Asia. We began to invest here at an early stage, work with leading local partners and will continue to write our success story.”

In China, DHL has been part of a joint venture with Sinotrans for 25 years. In India, it works with another important strategic partner, Blue Dart. DHL has invested about $2.2bn in the region over the last 10 years.

Revenue has been growing dynamically for years. Between January and September 2010, it climbed 40% above the previous year’s level. DHL also expects to generate double-digit growth rates in the future and to strengthen its market leadership.
