DHL's Global Brand Campaign
DHL starts a new advertising concept. Driven by the company's goal of 'Becoming the logistics company for the world', the global campaign is designed to address first and foremost to the decision-makers in today's business world.

The multi-tiered, multi-channel concept includes TV ads for international broadcast, advertisements in leading media in both Germany and around the world, as well as product campaigns in both print and digital format. Flyers, mailshots, banners and tactical local advertising will also supplement the campaign.
As part of its corporate strategy, Deutsche Post DHL had already announced its plans to adjust its logistics business to the customer promise of 'simplifying services' and 'sustainable solutions'. A new, integrated marketing campaign has now followed, covering for the first time all DHL business units and their products. Its claim 'Excellence. Simply Delivered.' reinforces the company's customer promise.
Christof Ehrhart, Director of Corporate Communications at Deutsche Post DHL, explains: "This comprehensive approach guarantees a uniform brand presence and at the same time creates synergies between the individual marketing activities on a global scale. We also made sure that global advertising resources could be utilized effectively at local level."

The new concept has a three-tier approach: The highest level communicates DHL as a leader in the logistics industry. Cross-divisional brand values are also pushed at this level: personal commitment, pro-active solutions and local strength worldwide. Product campaigns wrap up the three-tier approach, with the aim of addressing various target groups and supporting the direct sales process.
"The multi-tiered integrated campaign really draws out what is at the core of the DHL brand, it centers on what we do," explains Wolfgang Giehl, Head of Corporate Brand Marketing at Deutsche Post DHL.
