DHL signs new deal with Unilever

[ August 8, 2012   //   ]

DHL Supply Chain has signed a new agreement with Unilever to increase the manufacturer’s speed to market and efficiency, reduce costs and boost sustainablity. They also plan to extend the geographical footprint of existing services offered particularly in developing and emerging markets including Brazil, Russia, India, China and Mexico. Plans also include a ‘design once, deploy everywhere’ methodology to identify, harness, and streamline new and innovative processes across Unilever’s supply chain to deliver optimum performance.

This Joint Business Development Plan (JBDP) is part of Unilever’s ‘Partner to Win’ programme to work more closely with its key suppliers. Unilever’s chief supply chain officer Pier Luigi Sigismondi, commented: “For Unilever it is essential that we work closely together with our strategic suppliers to double the size of the company and halve our environmental impact.  We cannot do this alone. DHL and Unilever have worked together for many years now and both organizations share the same values, passion and goals.”
