DHL pledges business as usual
DHL says that prevailing market conditions won't dampen its desire to invest in and develop its Middle Eastern operations.
Graham Davey, chief operating officer of DHL Worldwide, has told a regional country managers meeting that market conditions won't stop the company investing in its local operations. Plans include the imminent opening of an AED 1 million service, logistics and sales centre in Karama.
“We are satisfied with the regional performance and are solidly committed to this region,” said Davey. “I want to stress our investments in the Middle East will continue to maintain DHL’s customer-centric global standards.”
Davey was making his comments to eleven country managers, at a gathering in Bahrain. Davey formed served as DHL’s country manager for Saudi Arabia and regional director.
DHL currently operates a fleet of seven aircraft out of Bahrain International Airport, including a Boeing 757 freighter. The company says it averages nearly 160 flights a week in and around the Gulf.
