Greater flexibility for dispatch to Eastern Europe
DHL offers its entire product portfolio in the EU's ten new member statesBonn, 05/27/2004, 11:30 AM CEST
Sending parcels with DHL to the European Union's (EU) ten new member states has become easier since May 1, 2004. DHL - Deutsche Post World Net's integrated express and logistics service provider - offers its entire product portfolio in and for the countries that became members of the EU on this day. For people using DHL's services to send parcels to Eastern Europe, this translates into lower costs, greater flexibility and shorter transit times.
The end of customs restrictions on imports and exports for these countries not only means the end of customs duties and formalities. This change greatly simplifies the dispatch process. Not only for the customer but also for the logistics service provider. And DHL passes the resulting benefits on to its customers. For example, it can now move pick-up times back and offer earlier delivery times in many parts of Eastern Europe to shorten transit times.
DHL expects a double-digit increase in transport volume on the European market as a result of the opening of Eastern Europe's markets and the markedly simplified dispatch process. The express and logistics service specialist DHL is more than ready for this. It has many years' experience with the East European logistics market. DHL already employs some 6,000 workers at more than 200 locations in the new EU member states. Backed by this network, DHL is able to satisfy any wish a customer may have - be it the delivery of a single document or an entire container - quickly and reliably.
