DHL, the world's leading logistics company, continues its support of the fashion industry as the official logistics sponsor of LG Fashion Week this week in Toronto. For more than five decades, DHL has provided the logistical expertise, excellent service and convenient delivery which the fashion industry demands. With enhanced capabilities for delivering the latest fashion and apparel worldwide, DHL's services cover the entire fashion logistics supply chain. DHL's ongoing support of the fashion industry, combined with its domestic coverage to every postal code in Canada, makes it the ideal logistics sponsor of Fashion Week, not only in Toronto, but also in more than 10 top cities worldwide.

“We are excited to return to sponsoring such an important industry for us. DHL's wide-range of transportation and logistics solutions span from working with smaller, more boutique fashion houses to assisting large apparel manufacturers with a single source solution involving all of their airfreight, ocean freight and customs brokerage services,” said Hugh McMaster, Vice President – Sales and Marketing, Canada for DHL Global Forwarding. “With over 50 years of experience in fashion, it is our job to ensure the latest trends reach the catwalk or the retail store on time.”

DHL has developed specific logistics solutions to meet the demanding needs of the dynamic fashion sector and is well positioned to help customers do business in some of these emerging world markets.
Fashion is an extremely time-sensitive business. Now more than ever, choosing a transportation and logistics provider plays a vital role in meeting the industry's requirements for cost efficiency and expediency in this $250 billion global industry.
