To secure the 2017 award, DHL Consulting submitted details of a significant project undertaken for one of the world’s biggest pharmaceutical companies. This project involved optimizing the global transportation, handling, and storage of high-value, complex and temperature-sensitive biotechnology products.
This company published a competitive RFQ, and DHL Consulting responded with a compelling offer that combined proven operational expertise and consultancy professionalism with unparalleled access to the DPDHL Group’s global footprint. The consulting team used a segmentation approach to create a ‘to-be’ model, which refined cost/service optimization and revealed opportunities for cost reduction.

In addition, the recommended global distribution network can reduce CO2 emissions by 36%.
