DHL Global Forwarding Ireland (DGF) are thrilled to announce a strategic partnership with Blood Bikes East who are non-profit organisation committed to providing free, rapid response medical transport services to HSE Hospitals, medical centres, hospices and other medical facilities in the greater Dublin area.

Eighteen dedicated individuals from the Blood Bikes East group made a visit to the DHL Global Forwarding Head Office, where they revealed the two recently sponsored motorcycles by DHL earlier this month. These motorcycles symbolize DHL's strong dedication to corporate social responsibility and will serve as vital assets in facilitating the transportation of urgently needed medical supplies.

This partnership exemplifies DGF’s commitment to give back to the community. This aligns with our purpose of ‘connecting people, improving lives”.

Blood Bikes East is equally excited about the partnership. Feilim MacCríosta, Chair of Blood Bikes East commented, “Today's generous donation of 2 motorbikes from DHL ensures that our services can continue uninterrupted as a modern fleet means better safety for our volunteers not to mention lower maintenance for our fleet team, a huge THANK YOU to Maurice and his whole team"
