Industrial and Manufacturing Supply Chain Solutions

The pressure to be competitive is forcing you to adjust the way you do business. For many industrial producers, the solution for increasing material and labor costs is to look overseas for product sourcing. And for every dollar saved offshore, another dollar (or more) will be spent on an increasingly complex supply chain.

DHL Supply Chain understands the unique logistics challenges facing industrial, manufacturing, and engineering companies. We provide a wide range of services that help align warehouse and transportation operations with your business strategies. Our processes, technology, and extensive network of facilities throughout the Americas drive cost and capital out of your operations, while ensuring consistent and predictable service.

We let you focus on what you do best: design, engineer, and manufacture products the world depends on. With DHL Supply Chain as a partner, your goods will be delivered as safely and efficiently as possible.

From global collection points to local consumption points, DHL Supply Chain supports the inbound flow of materials from suppliers to your production lines. Lean strategies increase efficiency and ensure just-in-time deliveries.
