    DHL moves with tomorrow’s energy today

    • Market leader focuses on energy logistics

    Bonn, 14 March 2011:  Working alongside customers across a variety of industries over many decades has provided DHL with an unrivalled industry understanding and expertise. DHL is now applying this experience to the wind energy sector, delivering lean and sustainable supply chain solutions which support the construction and maintenance of wind turbines.

    As the production of wind energy is no longer a niche activity, the supply chain is becoming more and more a key focus area for the wind energy industry, as increased competition makes it necessary to move beyond simply optimized sourcing and into wider supply chain and logistics issues. Improved forecasting and planning of production and milk runs, supply chain monitoring, optimized multimodal delivery and remote location support, create competitive advantage by increasing efficiency and driving down costs, thus improving profitability.

    DHL can manage all key supply chain and logistics services required by the wind energy industry including inbound to manufacturing, moving oversized components and complete wind turbines globally by air, ocean, road and rail freight, ensuring minimized turbine downtime through optimized spare part and service logistics, as well as providing supply chain consultancy (e.g. improving plant flows). All of this under one DHL roof which translates into increased safety, flexibility, communication, transparency and visibility from origin to final destination.

    Additional benefits include quick and reliable access to new markets, the ability to optimize global maintenance set-up, freeing up resources to focus on core skills, more flexibility in responding to changing market conditions, and boosting innovation – all critical factors for sustainable growth.
