Martin Södergård, the new CEO for DHL Express Nordic, will continue to strengthen DHL Express' position as the leading logistics company in the Nordic countries.

He now works with his Nordic team, consisting of country managing directors with extensive, international logistics experience. "I regard the Nordics as an especially exciting region since we have the opportunity to offer our customers our full range of products here. We have a wide spectrum of services such as time-definite deliveries to the U.S. the following day, distribution of parcels for private customers and overnight deliveries of spare parts weighing 30 tons. And you can book all this on our websites," explains Södergård.
