“DHL Supply Chain is not just the leading contract logistics provider in the world, we’re a leader in digitalization and innovation as well. As we continue to grow alongside the market, our customer-focused approach enables us to transform innovative ideas into scalable and commercially viable products that we can roll-out across the regions.

The new business Strategy 2025 mainly focuses on four areas: when it comes to people and talent, DHL is focusing on how to overcome labor shortage and attract new talent, while at the same time preparing, training and certifying existing employees for the changes digitalization will bring.
Innovations and Digitalization Are at the Core
On the execution side, standardization and constantly improved processes will lead to more profitable growth, while customer experience, especially the digital customer journey, are becoming more important than ever.
Leading innovations and digitalization are the connecting element above all.
The Technology Campus in Beringe boasts 128,000 square meters of warehouse space equipped with 100 loading docks that see 200-250 inbound and outbound trucks per day.
This campus serves globally leading technology companies as a pan-European distribution hub and the local team orchestrates the global supply chains of DHL customers.
The Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) certified campus relies on a variety of innovative specialized tools, including processing and sorting machines, augmented reality technology, robotic arms, indoor robotic transport, and the next generation of scanning mobile devices.
