"We have been a customer of DHL Exel Supply Chain for two years," added Wichai Choonong, Inbound Logistics Manager for Mitsubishi Motor (Thailand) Co., Ltd. "The difference between DHL Exel Supply Chain and other companies is their commitment to their customer.

DHL's Automotive team is currently managing the logistical requirements in conjunction with the Mitsubishi Motors materials team, in the process arranging for the transfer of all bonded material to the new facility. This will ensure that DHL can then provide the full range of contracted services that is required by Mitsubishi Motors.
