DHL services to the fashion industry

Jan '07
DHL and IMG Fashion have announced a sponsorship agreement that makes DHL the Official Express Carrier and Logistics Provider of IMG Fashion's US-based fashion events. The relationship begins with Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City, February 2-9, 2007.

DHL's partnership with IMG includes sponsorship of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Weeks in New York, Los Angeles and Miami. Additionally, DHL will sponsor IMG's new consumer Fashion Week experience tour, FashionWeekLive presented by Sephora, which kicks off in March 2007 with events in Houston, Dallas, Chicago and San Francisco. The sponsorship is part of DHL's multi-platform program to serve the unique needs of the fashion, apparel and retail industries.

Unique Services for Fashion - “DHL's sponsorship of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week demonstrates our commitment to serving the fashion industry,” said Karen Jones, Senior Vice President, Corporate & Marketing Communications, DHL Express.

Because of the company's leadership position in Asia, Europe and Central and South America, DHL has resources in place to serve these markets vital to the fashion industry. DHL continues to expand its leading international services, most recently increasing its overnight door-to-door service from Asia with five additional flights to the U.S.

Dedicated DHL fashion staff in New York City offer services tailored to the industry such as sample room management, consolidation services and international vendor management. While DHL consolidation sweeps services combine shipments and reduce the number of consignments for DHL customers, DHL's Import Express service allows fashion clients to navigate customs and government shipping regulations while ensuring critical deliveries arrive on time. With Import Express, shipments are handled by DHL from pickup outside the US to delivery in the US, with all tracking, invoicing and single-currency payment through DHL.
