Keeping the Pace of an Evolving Industry

Many of the largest companies in the world belong to the Consumer and Retail (C&R) sector. For the vast majority of them, logistics play a very important role in ensuring the satisfaction of their customers day by day. It is the aim of DHL Freight’s Retail Sector to help international clients to achieve their business goals the best possible way, making use of DHL Freight’s expertise in delivering reliable and state-of-the-art transport & value-added-services from pallet shipments (LTL) up to full truck loads (FTL).

Due to the development of e-commerce the retail sector changed rapidly over the past years which also influenced the logistics immensely in that sense that the flow of goods got more diverse.

The retail sector can be divided into the following categories, all requiring different logistics solutions:

  • Online retailing
  • Offline retailing
  • Multi-channelling

While the online retailer shows international structures and needs quick consolidation services offline retailing needs the complete opposite due to strong fragmentation and local structures. DHL Freight meets these challenges - collaborating and innovating solutions in partnership with you.
