Key Solutions for Technology Supply Chain Resilience

DHL provides a comprehensive range of services and support to bring you better supply chain risk resilience strategies:

Supply Chain Visibility

Supply chain visibility is critical for the global technology supply chain. Our supply chain visibility solutions, supported by IoT sensors, give our customers a view of their supply chains, providing updates on shipment locations, inventory levels, and delivery statuses. This enables businesses to make informed decisions, proactively address disruptions, and optimize their supply chain operations.

Risk Monitoring and Mitigation

Through our partnership with Everstream Analytics, DHL uses advanced AI to capture, rationalize, and synthesize data to deliver risk scoring and predictive insights to anticipate problems and inform customers. We reduce supply chain disruptions before they cause significant financial losses or long-lasting reputational damage. 

Access to Capacity

Recent global supply chain disruptions have highlighted the importance of securing logistics capacity to ensure reliable consumer deliveries and essential component supplies. As the world’s largest logistics company, DHL is well-positioned to source additional transportation capacity for our customers, particularly at a time when available shipping volumes have decreased. The strength of our infrastructure means we can always find capacity when needed most.

At the same time, our expertise and understanding of regional nuances empower us to offer specific solutions addressing local needs.

Strong Partnerships

The technology industry is built on partnerships between companies. DHL builds strong relationships with key suppliers and partners and focuses on collaboration across the supply chain. We provide strategic expertise to optimize networks and develop supply chain resilience through these partnerships. We leverage these strong relationships in times of crisis to ensure continued smooth operations.

Every industry has distinct characteristics and needs. Our industry-specific solutions are based on our extensive understanding of the Technology Sector’s precise requirements. We work closely with our customers to develop specific solutions to fit their needs and have built our capabilities around the expectation for agility, speed-to-market, scalability, flexibility, and product security.

All companies are looking at increasing efficiency and keeping costs under control. We use indoor robots and advanced automation systems supported by cutting-edge 3D visualization technology and state-of-the-art artificial intelligence to increase the efficiency of our operations.
