DHL Supply Chain buys Colombian logistics provider
DHL Supply Chain has bought Suppla Group, a Colombian logistics services provider.
Suppla offers warehousing and packaging services across Life Sciences and Healthcare, Retail, Consumer, and Technology sectors. The company has a local presence in five regions and coverage of 25 cities of Colombia, about 500,000 square meters of storage capacity and around 4,500 employees.
In a statement issued today (22 May), DHL Supply Chain said that the acquisition of Suppla will help to “significantly improve its footprint in Colombia”.
DHL Supply Chain’s services in Colombia currently include Service Logistics operations, supported by a recently inaugurated warehouse in Bogotá.
“The expansion into the developing Andean region in South America, specifically in Colombia, is key to achieve our Strategy 2020 targets and allows us to unlock further growth potential,” said Javier Bilbao, CEO DHL Supply Chain Latin America.
“With Suppla’s proven business results, professional operations and a strong overlap to DHL Supply Chain’s culture, products, sectors and customers, we are taking one more step to tap the potentials of a promising market environment and be ready to serve our national and international customers.”
