The international shipping, courier and packaging service DHL Express is relocating their Brunei branch to a 1,177 square meter facility which is about five times the size of their previous location.
The Germany-based international courier, parcel and express mail service has branch locations worldwide and shares its DHL brand with other business units such as DHL Global Forwarding and DHL supply chain.
In addition to the various businesses they are part of, DHL also bought Airborne Express back in 2003, which used to be the third largest private express delivery company in the US.
Christopher Ong, Managing Director of DHL Express Malaysia and Brunei, said that they have been at their previous place for 20 years, and they would face challenges during the peak seasons.
This new facility also has drive-in bays to shorten the time in between deliveries and boosts competitiveness in local Small-Medium Enterprises to the international marketplace by giving them a hand in reaching out a wider audience.
Meanwhile, DHL as an international trade facilitator will continue to educate local SMEs on the industry and insights from DHL express and their partners on opportunities beyond the local market.
