DHL is also positioned the furthest in the Leaders quadrant for vision and execution. “We believe being positioned the furthest in the Leaders quadrant of this recognized research is a great accomplishment and feel it highlights our extensive service and product portfolio,” says Katja Busch, Chief Commercial Officer DHL and Head of DHL Customer Solutions & Innovation. “We are continuously striving to become the logistics provider of choice for companies around the globe. As the world’s most international company, and thanks to our global logistics network, we are capable of providing premium logistics services for our customers.
We feel our placement in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant makes the success of our approach even more visible to existing and new customers.” Gartner evaluated 15 third-party logistics providers and positioned them along the Magic Quadrant’s two axes “completeness of vision” and “ability to execute”. The results were used to designate companies being positioned in one of the four quadrants ‘Leaders’, ‘Challengers’, ‘Visionaries’ and ‘Niche Players’.
As per the Gartner report, “Leaders rate well on the highly weighted criteria of execution and vision. This means the leading providers have extensive service offerings and infrastructure, and make them available across an expansive global footprint. They understand the market, trends and customer needs, and translate those into well-executed service offerings further specialized for any number of industries. They are formidable at logistics execution across the service lines and run highly professional, very comprehensive logistics businesses. Leaders also have well-structured strategies and business models to continue to expand their capabilities, regional coverage and industry specialization, and they are adept at offering services for different customer segments.
