DHL returns to runway at LG Fashion Week

Mar '10
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 is the logistics leader in the world's leading fashion marketplaces, such as Asia, Europe and Central and South America. The company provides solutions to globally expanding brands, within the fashion and apparel sector, helping them to effectively navigate the challenges across their global supply chains. 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.

“With our extensive reach throughout the world we are able to offer customers custom shipping solutions through our full suite of Time Definite products,” said Andrew Williams, Vice President – Commercial, DHL Express Canada Ltd. “Our Time-Definite International service ensures that materials needed for designers to meet a deadline are delivered on time, from Toronto to Milan or Paris to Berlin.”

DHL's large investments in Fashion Centers of Excellence in Hong Kong and several other Asian locations demonstrate its commitment to providing innovative solutions to customers through a growing team of industry experts. DHL's extensive network and understanding of business practices in developing markets like Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Vietnam reinforces its ability to meet customers' dynamic needs in a highly competitive market. This network links Canada and points in Asia, connecting Canadian shipperswith key Asian markets through DHL's Incheon Gateway, DHL's Central Asia Hub in Hong Kong and through DHL's North Asia Hub at the Shanghai Pudong International Airport.
