Watch: DHL Demonstrates the Power of Digital Logistics for Dubai Trade
CEO of DHL Global Forwarding (MENA), Amadou Diallo, provides insights on the benefits of digitally powered logistics & supply chains and highlights the increased flow of trade moving through Dubai to the African continent.
DHL's digital platforms Saloodo! and myDHLi were deployed across all countries in the region making communications and co-ordination of logistics seamless. This allowed DHL employees to work remotely yet as effectively as if they were on the ground or in the office.
Mr Diallo also acknowledges the dedication of employees through the pandemic that allowed DHL to keep all shipments on track and delivered for customers without any significant delays.
According to Mr Diallo trade volumes between Dubai and Africa have increased by nearly 20% post-March 2020 and DHL has been helping Dubai businesses reach out markets there, particularly South Africa, a country that has recently seen a major jump in trade transactions with Dubai-based businesses.
