DHL Celebrates 40 years in Fiji
The past 40 years of service delivery in Fiji has been fantastic for DHL express, says Country Manager Mark Komene. Mr Komene at the company’s celebration in Labasa on Thursday night, said there had been a development of growth in the company compared to when they first started in 1976. “We started Nadi with three staff and one vehicle. Now we have 120 stuff, 15 vehicles and facilities all over Fiji,” Mr Komene said. He added while there was strong competition in the country they focused on timely delivery.
“Absolutely, there is competition in Fiji and we are trying to differentiate ourselves by providing premium products to offer the best service we can provide. “We always focus on speed and I would like to thank our passionate and dedicated officers who continue to do their best daily in ensuring timely delivery. “Our staff have jumped into ferries and travelled even during floods and cyclones to ensure that the goods are delivered.” He assured members of public in the North that they were also receiving the same services as those in foreign countries like Britain where they also officer their services. DHL also celebrated their one year anniversary in Labasa after they pulled out three years ago. “we actually exited the Labasa market in 2013, but by 2015 we decided to come back, we knew we had to,” Mr Komene said. “We saw the investment in Vanua Levu and in Labasa so we got on board with the others. “We have an office here with all the technology needed. The idea was if we could connect Labasa with the rest of the world, we can have a good business here. “We are just stunned by the response of our customers here in Labasa.”
