The customer and the challenge
Delivering customer satisfaction
DHL Express operates one of the most complex global express networks across Africa. Serving businesses of all sizes, they constantly face new challenges. So, they rightfully pride themselves on providing state-of-the-art solutions, convenience and end-to-end visibility to their customers year in year out.
DHL Express needed a stronger spine – the IT backbone
To provide convenience and ease to their customers, DHL Express needed the right technological capabilities. They wanted to create an infrastructure that could improve internal processes, efficiencies and productivity, while they also wanted to be more flexible, so they could better integrate with their customers’ systems.
Over a decade of experience together
DHL Express needed a partner that could help them grow, scale and be more agile in a dynamic environment. They wanted to maintain their leading position within the logistics industry on the continent. To achieve this, DHL Express and Vodacom Business, Vodafone's Pan African subsidiary, partnered up in 2009 and they have been delivering innovative solutions together ever since.
