New DHL consumer survey on fashion trends and their parallels in the world of logistics [Integrator]
Consumers more demanding about production and environmental protection
DHL offers tailored logistics solutions for designers and brands
DHL has had a close partnership with the fashion industry for many years. In addition to providing logistics services for major industry events, the company also cooperates with important fashion associations and awards prizes to up-and-coming young designers.
DHL's newest consumer survey provides an overview of current trends and consumer expectations. About 6,000 people from the UK, the United States, Italy, Australia and Japan took part, answering questions about their buying habits and the reasons behind their purchases. As a long-time logistics partner for designers, events and brands, DHL commissioned the survey to underscore the importance of a smoothly operating global network, precision, dependability and speed in the fashion industry.
"DHL commissioned this survey to take a closer look at current fashion trends and point out their parallels with the world of logistics. Both industries operate global networks and work creatively, accurately and fast," says Arjan Sissing, SVP Group Brand Marketing.
Among other things, the survey shows that consumers in the UK value ethical production especially highly, while women in Japan give priority to the quality of products. 15% of survey participants read the label to see where a piece of clothing was produced; in Italy the figure is as high as 41%. In addition, buyers want to know whether and how the product shipment chain might affect the environment. And one-quarter of the respondents say that production under fair working conditions is important to them. Experts like the British fashion journalist Karen Kay also emphasize that there is a trend toward increased awareness of environmental impact and social aspects, especially among the younger generation.
Since 2008, DHL has partnered with various fashion weeks and offers tailored services to deliver the designers' irreplaceable sample collections to the shows reliably and on time. Among its current commitments are partnerships with the fashion weeks in London and Copenhagen, the Amazon Fashion Week Tokyo, and the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Weeks in Sydney and Moscow.
DHL also works with leading industry associations worldwide, among them the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), the British Fashion Council (BFC), the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana (CNMI), the Japan Fashion Week Organization (JFW Organization) and the Artefact Agency in Russia. In October 2017, DHL and the CFDA jointly published "The Human-Centered Supply Chain," a study on business models for the future of fashion. It analyzed and outlined solutions for the main challenges and fields of action for supply chains in the fashion industry. The "Designer's Playbook," which was developed from the results of the study, helps aspiring designers to establish their businesses successfully. In addition, DHL promotes and supports young designers with workshops and award programs that include transport services and logistics mentoring to aid designers in internationalizing their businesses. DHL also works with various established designers, including the VETEMENTS label, which dedicated a separate capsule collection to DHL as part of its Spring/Summer 2018 collection.
DHL provides information about current fashion issues and partnerships through social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The "DHL Fashion" Facebook page has nearly 200,000 followers.
Decades of expertise in fashion logistics
As the leading logistics partner for the fashion, jewelry and lifestyle industry, DHL has decades of experience and expertise in the field of fashion logistics. The company provides a wide range of customized logistics solutions including a variety of services for e-commerce, delivery to boutiques and shopping centers, or comprehensive warehousing and value-added services in special fashion distribution centers. DHL's services are intended not only for large fashion businesses and established designers but for talented and ambitious newcomers as well.

DHL strengthens its position in automotive logistics [Integrator]
DHL Freight has been awarded an extension of its contract with the BMW Group and will continue to manage the vehicle manufacturer's overland transport in 17 countries covered by the companies' previous contract.
DHL Freight wins contract with the BMW Group
Successful renewal of existing business and expansion of collaboration
Custom-tailored Connected Supply Chain solution to monitor and optimize flow of goods
Bonn - DHL Freight has been awarded an extension of its contract with the BMW Group and will continue to manage the vehicle manufacturer's overland transport in 17 countries covered by the companies' previous contract. As a result of the tender, DHL Freight also won an expansion of the collaboration, taking on supply chain management of the BMW Group in seven additional areas. A new DHL Freight custom-made logistics solution was successfully implemented as part of the contract conclusion.
"This achievement represents another step towards Freight 2020, our strategy to become the provider of choice in overland transport by offering the best quality and reliability for the customers who depend on us," declares Uwe Brinks, DHL Freight. "With BMW, we set out to create a solution specifically designed for their needs, one that would provide complete transparency throughout the supply chain, allowing the customer a consolidated overview of extremely complex processes. We have achieved this with Connected Supply Chain, a solution that gives BMW and their partners at DHL Freight the ability to manage potential issues and identify opportunities for further optimization."
Connected Supply Chain (CSC) depicts the entire supply chain digitally, delivering real-time, end-to-end visibility and management control to all relevant stakeholders. Aspects such as order and status data are visible via a central portal, and orders receive a single reference number from beginning to end. Drivers can access the system via a mobile application designed specifically for them. DHL Freight's solution was developed together with AXIT, a specialist for in cloud-based IT solutions for managing cross-enterprise logistics processes, in order to feed CSC with the relevant information.
The transparency and control afforded by CSC give BMW a real-time overview of developments. They can identify potential risks or emergency situations immediately and rapidly counteract them with the support of DHL Freight. As part of the solution, DHL Freight has established a Control Tower, where all streams of goods in Europe are monitored, providing a unique opportunity to consolidate complex data and identify areas where operations may be optimized. BMW can thereby identify potential for savings and monitor the performance of suppliers and carriers in real-time.
DHL Freight's new contract with the BMW Group covers the management of about 90,000 shipments per month within a simultaneously dependable and highly flexible network. Temperature-controlled shipping and dedicated transports are available in all areas covered by the contract.
