A Trusted Partner. Solving Consumer Challenges.

Consumer driven trends, an expanding global middle class, and the desire for sustainable and affordable products means change is fast in the world of consumer goods manufacturers.

Consequently, supply chains have to be agile. At DHL we meet these challenges head on - collaborating and innovating solutions in partnership with you.

Consumer goods manufacturers face a number of global trends & challenges which we are familiar with. Keeping topics such as globalization, urbanization, raw materials and sustainability in mind our consumer experts help you operating all relevant sub-sectors according to the distinct needs.

  • Fast moving consumer goods (FMCG)
  • Print
  • Media/Entertainment
  • Perishables
  • Consumer durables

Within the sub-sectors, the demands couldn't be more diverse.
