Qualifications set the stage for success

To address your business challenges requires expertise. When DHL Consulting selects a consulting team for you, we make sure that team has the experience required to do the job. We bring together the right mix of skills for an innovative, workable solution.

All of our consultants have outstanding academic and professional records, and most have prior external work experience. They also command critical abilities such as communication skills, business acumen, and an ability to work both abstractly and on a detailed operational level.

In addition, all projects are overseen by one of our senior partners. These partners possess substantial experience in diverse business challenges and in countless projects, close relations with senior managers at the Deutsche Post DHL Group, and an intimate knowledge of the latest developments in the logistics industry.

Cutting-edge tools and processes


DHL Consulting plays a unique dual role, independently delivering objective advice to the business units of Deutsche Post DHL Group, as well as to external clients, mostly in collaboration with DHL Supply Chain. In either case, our objectivity is one of our strengths. Group-internal clients benefit from our wide-reaching consulting and industry expertise, while external clients profit from our insider knowledge of world-class logistics operations.

In addition, we also rely on a number of important strategies to provide the best service. These include:

  • Knowledge management
    We keep our knowledge flowing through our organization, so that everyone benefits from the expertise gained in projects while at the same time ensuring strict client confidentiality.

  • Network and resources
    We mine our extensive network for further data on topics and trends, and utilize top tools for data analysis, benchmarking and market research.

  • Project management
    All DHL Consulting teams have a proven project process in place to guarantee high quality results.

  • Customer proximity
    Our teams are always close to their customers. Based out of four strategically placed global offices, our consultants frequently work on-site at diverse customer locations around the globe.  

Our outstanding expertise in management consulting is rooted in our never-ending improvement of our methods and tools, as well as in our continuous commitment to train our consultants. We are anchored in logistics expertise due to our close connection to Deutsche Post DHL Group, but we can only deliver consistent quality through optimal teamwork with each other – and with our customers.

Fostering expert knowledge

In some industries, specific sector knowledge is critical to the understanding of the particular demands that handled goods place on the supply chain. To meet these needs, DHL Consulting internally accumulates and fosters expert knowledge in so-called practice groups focused on supply chain optimization for a variety of industries.

Our practice group Supply Chain & Life Science & Healthcare (LSHC) combines deep knowledge of DHL’s Supply Chain division with long-standing expertise in the LSHC industry. Being the trusted business advisor, we are involved in major strategic DHL Supply Chain initiatives and support the cross-divisional DHL LSHC community as well as global LSHC players on their supply chain transformations.

The Global Forwarding & Freight + Oil & Energy practice group provides trusted advice in the areas of air, ocean and ground transportation. Our members develop innovative and long-term concepts for the freight & forwarding industries, while maintaining intimate stakeholder relations. In addition, our experts provide strategic logistics consulting services to external customers in the Oil & Energy industry.

Members of the Finance & Global Business Services + Automotive practice group are trusted advisors for senior management in Deutsche Post DHL Group’s Corporate and Divisional Finance organizations as well as for service lines like Real Estate, Procurement, or Finance and HR Services. In the past year we have made a sustainable impact through projects in departments such as Corporate Tax, Corporate Controlling, Finance and HR Services and for the financial organizations of divisions like DHL Supply Chain. Our projects cover a broad range of topics like organizational design and transformation, cost reduction and turnaround, business case analysis, financial steering and reporting, strategic sourcing, or large-scale process optimization.

We are the trusted advisors for technology-driven, strategic topics for the Deutsche Post DHL Group. We keep an eye on technological trends and innovations and help our business partners leverage these to effectively manage their business challenges. We facilitate knowledge exchange amongst divisions through regular interaction outside of projects.

In addition, our experts provide strategic logistics consulting services to external customers in the Engineering & Manufacturing industry.

This DHL Consulting practice group is committed to supply chain consultancy services to Deutche Post DHL Group’s customers in the Consumer Retail and Technology sector.
