DHL Launches Automotive Competence Centre

DHL Global Forwarding has launched a first-of-its-kind Automotive Competence Center in South Africa. Strategically located in the South-eastern coast in Port Elizabeth, the Center is in proximity to the entire automotive value chain from Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers to car manufacturers based along the coast. 

The Automotive Competence Center will provide a comprehensive suite of reliant and compliant end-to-end logistics solutions such as air, ocean and multimodal options, origin freight consolidation, destination freight management, waste management, reverse logistics, inbound-to-manufacturing service for component manufacturers, customs clearance, in-plant logistics, sequencing and just-in-time delivery. DHL currently maintains seven of these Competence Centers as part of a global network with a strong focus on markets in developing countries.
