“Quality is one of the main sources of differentiation in our highly competitive industry, and our Quality Control Centers are a major investment by DHL in ensuring that we continue to lead the international time definite delivery market over the long-term,” said Ken Allen, CEO, DHL Express.

“Singapore has played an important role in DHL’s global network since 1972, as one of our first international markets and a major Asian economy with a strong trade orientation. This was a key factor in the decision to base one of our four global Quality Control Centers and the centres of excellence for global service quality and business IT in Singapore.”

“Beyond the overall growth story, however, Singapore already plays host to a number of centers of excellence within DHL, thanks to the high caliber of logistics expertise and the country’s well-documented support for the transportation sector, which contributes over nine per cent of GDP. This latest investment underscores Singapore’s status as a centre of excellence for quality in international logistics within DHL,” said Jerry Hsu, CEO, DHL Express Asia Pacific.
