DHL Supply Chain has announced it will invest more than EUR 70 million in growing its regional footprint in Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar by 2020.
The first and only logistics company to acquire an operational business license in Myanmar since last month, DHL Supply Chain already benefits from a position of market leadership in Thailand and Vietnam, and will concentrate on Cambodia next for further growth opportunities. Over the next three years, the company plans to build new facilities, expand its fleet of trucks, and invest in new technology, creating an additional 5,000 jobs in the four countries.
– Asia-Pacific is one the most important regions for DHL Supply Chain being accountable for a significant share of our revenues in 2016. Consumer, retail and tech industries drive these developments becoming evident in increased amounts of new and extended contracts. Being already the market leader for the region it is fully natural for us to foster our commitment in the region and remaining a reliable partner – comments John Gilbert, CEO DHL Supply Chain.
