DHL ex­tends links with road run­ners for Tas­ma­nia

Australian Transport News - - News -

DHL Ex­press has ex­tended its Tas­ma­nia ser­vice part­ner­ship with lo­cal rm Road Run­ners.

The new part­ner­ship bol­sters DHL’s cov­er­age in the ma­jor met­ro­pol­i­tan ar­eas of Ho­bart, Launce­s­ton and Devon­port, while ex­tend­ing it across re­gional ar­eas in Tas­ma­nia, in­clud­ing Flin­ders Is­land and King Is­land.

DHL Ex­press Ocea­nia CEO and se­nior vice pres­i­dent Gary Ed­stein marks the move as sig­nalling the global rm’s com­mit­ment to grow ser­vice ca­pa­bil­i­ties in re­gional ar­eas.

“Road Run­ners has been our trusted part­ner in Tas­ma­nia for the past decade,” Ed­stein says.

“This new agree­ment with Road Run­ners fur­ther so­lidies DHL’s com­mit­ment in de­liv­er­ing to Tas­ma­nian cus­tomers, and reects our on­go­ing growth in vol­umes in the coun­try’s south­ern­most state.

DHL Ex­press Aus­tralia notes it has ex­pe­ri­enced a 20 per cent in­crease in the num­ber of ship­ments ad­dressed to Tas­ma­nian re­cip­i­ents since de­liv­er­ies be­gan close to 10 years ago.

As part of the agree­ment, Road Run­ners will op­er­ate four DHL branded ve­hi­cles on be­half of the com­pany to help cater for the rapidly grow­ing num­ber of ship­ments des­tined for Tas­ma­nia’s ma­jor ci­ties.
