At DHL we understand the major trends and business challenges you face in the Engineering & Manufacturing sector and how your supply chain can react to these changes. Making us, we believe – your ideal partner.

In a sector such as E&M with a wide range of requirements for transports of different sizes – it comes from single-pallets to extra-large transports – DHL Freight’s services in the E&M sector cover all these shipment sizes.

For oversized and very heavy cargo, such as bulky construction and aerospace equipment, there is a portfolio of dedicated solutions. The service package includes cargo insurance, permits from authorities, follow cars and police escorts if necessary. For the transport itself, a wide range of adjustable trailers is available, as well as project shipping, loading and unloading services.

For the “normal” type of shipments DHL Freight’s core products, which include full-truckload (FTL), part-truckload (PTL) and less-than-truckload (LTL) transports are being used by our customers. In addition, dedicated supply chain management is available on request.
