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.”
