DHL customers to get full visibility of goods thru CDS

Apr '07
Web-based System for Consolidated Distribution Services Provides Seamless Tracking of Shipments.

DHL, the world's leading global express delivery and logistics company announced a new shipment visibility enhancement to its DHL Global Forwarding Consolidated Distribution Service (CDS), a US Import service that enables customers to reduce brokerage fees and shorten delivery times for shipments originating in Asia, Europe, and Latin America.

The new web-based tracking service provides point-to-point tracking for shipments as they pass through DHL's international freight forwarding and U.S. Express network.

The relocation of manufacturing bases worldwide has required businesses to operate on a global scale, with products moving greater distances across multiple borders. To speed up shipments through this lengthened supply chain, DHL created CDS, a "virtual" warehouse which eliminates the need for a costly distribution center.

With CDS, bulk shipments sent from overseas can be broken down and inducted directly into the DHL US Express or Global Forwarding network for final delivery to the end consumer, bypassing time-consuming warehouse stops.

With web-based tracking, DHL customers can now get full visibility of their goods through the CDS service, from point of production to point of purchase. Customers can track shipments from a single tracking site, and obtain near real time information on the status of shipments as they transfer from bulk international air or ocean line-haul shipments to smaller units within the DHL U.S. Express or Global Forwarding heavyweight network.
