Accelerating the Pace of Digital Transformation

The rise of e-commerce requirements (faster delivery, more SKUs and increased order picking), combined with labor shortages across regions and sectors, indicates fast adoption of technology is more necessary than ever. At DHL Supply Chain, we have developed an accelerate digitization program to nurture and deploy innovative technology solutions at scale.
