Swe­den and UK are strate­gic coun­tries cater­ing to a large seg­ment of trade with In­dia. In­dia and Swe­den share a long tradition of trade co­op­er­a­tion which has sig­nif­i­cantly grown in re­cent years and shows po­ten­tial for fur­ther de­vel­op­ment.

Com­ment­ing on the new launch, Thomas Tieber, CEO, South Asia, DHL Global For­ward­ing (South Asia), said, „The new ser­vices are strate­gi­cally planned to meet the growth of for­eign trade amidst the ris­ing global de­mand for such ser­vices. UK and In­dia have been strate­gic trade part­ners for cen­turies with both coun­tries show­ing a keen in­ter­est to in­crease the trade out­lay. This gives DHL an op­por­tu­nity to cater to a vast seg­ment of engi­neer­ing cus­tomers in In­dia reg­u­larly im­port­ing from UK as well as to tap into the SME seg­ment.‰ He also main­tained that with the in­tro­duc­tion of these new ser­vices, DHL has fur­ther strength­ened its net­work and ocean freight ser­vice of­fer­ings to sup­port the needs of its cus­tomers. „All LCL ser­vices are ac­com­pa­nied by DHLÊs IT so­lu­tions such as DHL Track & Trace and other tools to al­low full vis­i­bil­ity throughout the whole sup­ply chain,‰ Tieber added. DHL also fa­cil­i­tates in­sur­ance ser­vices to cus­tomers as a value-added ser­vice. DHLÊs Ship­pers In­ter­est In­sur­ance (SII) cov­ers losses or dam­ages of all cargo trans­ported by DHL, as well as trans­porta­tion costs.

DHL cur­rently op­er­ates as the worldÊs largest LCL net­work with close to 20,00,000 cu­bic me­tres of LCL freight han­dled an­nu­ally via 45,000 point-pairs. „Go­ing be­yond port to port, DHL LCL ser­vice also of­fers a com­plete end-to-end sup­ply chain man­age­ment that in­cludes pick-up at ori­gin, con­sol­i­da­tion and de­con­sol­i­da­tion, de­liv­ery at des­ti­na­tion and cus­toms clear­ance,‰ Tieber un­der­lined.
