DHL recently unveiled its DHL Asia Pacific Packaging Center in Shah Alam, Selangor to tap into the packaging market in Asia Pacific estimated to be worth up to US$12.5 billion. DHL Supply Chain Asia Pacific expects to see this business grow by 15 per cent year-on-year over the next three years.

The first-of-its-kind in Asia Pacific, DHL plans to establish up to six more centres in the region by 2012. Packaging services currently form 25 per cent of the contract logistics market in Asia Pacific and DHL expects the demand to grow given the rising demand for customised packaging solutions especially from the consumer, technology and healthcare sectors.
